A sweet movie.
20 April 2002 | by (Northern California) – See all my reviews

This is the best film I have seen in a long time. Is is completely hilarious. I loved this film.

Cameron Diaz (Christina) and Christina Applegate (Courtney) seemed like they were friends since they were 2 years old. They definatly had charisma. They were completely hilarious together.

I recommend this movie to anyone looking for a good laugh and good time.

I set design was great. Very colourful.

I loved the trendy outfits all 3 ladies wore. A fashionable Charlies Angeles.

10 out of 10 for comedy easily. Go, go now....
