A truly witty, fun, stress relieving flick!
14 September 2002 | by See all my reviews

This movie turned a hectic crappy day into something fun and spectacularly silly. For those who are strung a bit too tight, this movie may not make much of an impression but for those of us who remember partying with the girls, being silly and just letting our hair down, this movie scores a 10. I think Cameron Diaz and Christina Applegate are terrific together and Selma Blair adds just a hint of awkward innocence where it's needed. Kudos to the cast and writer. It's a movie I'll watch again.
