Funny modern chick humor...
9 October 2005 | by (Bay Area, CA) – See all my reviews

Okay, the important thing to note here is that this type of movie (silly, goofy) is not intended to create a new world order. If you are seeking a film with deep social meaning, or an underlying message of hope and inspiration, pick something else to watch.

It is not a film for everyone and hey by now you should know what type of flicks you enjoy... if its not your style don't watch it!

It's a story of ultra modern, aggressive, women who are warriors of the singles scene. This film is really more suited to women and will likely irritate a lot of men because the characters are women that act like men when it comes to relationships and sex. Yeah, its the whole double standard thing in all its glory.

Some of the scenes are really stupid, and I laughed out loud, because hey I like stupid once in awhile.

Bottom line if you have been there and have done the singles thing, and especially if you have ever been, or currently are, a "playa" in the game then you will enjoy the intended absurdity of this film.

If nothing I have referred to sounds familiar to you don't bother to watch this flick... I can guarantee that you wont get it and wont enjoy it.

Best, JS
