Okay we have yet another film starring chicks who won a genetic lottery and act like a bunch of typical immature Anglo-American bimbos. Add the mangina, pussywhipped men who admire them for their behavior and it just makes this film even worse. The saddest part of all is that this is the way it pretty much is in this country, sans of course the happy ending. See these thirty something women-girls-whatever are supposed to be grown up working women, and they act like they are in high school. This serves as a bothersome reminder that adolescence in women in the United States remains up until the 30's, or whenever any of these skanks pops out an illegitimate child. Does anyone out there in movie viewing land ever stop to ask themselves, what is wrong with this flick? Call movies like this what you want: Chick flick, a bold statement of girl power, whatever. But a movie like this is just another form of skankism caught on film. A skank is a skank is a skank and any other skank would skank just as much. A real masterpiece yo!
You will always find either women are portrayed as hopelessly romantic or
completely sex driven, the difference with "The Sweetest Thing" is that they
want to have fun and explore their feminity without going overboard. Cameron
Diaz is a classic as Christina Walters, proving again that she's a good
actress. It was good to see Christina Applegate again, this time playing a
more diverse role as Courtney Rockcliffe. The chemistry the two actresses
shared as best friends was great to see, Selma Blair's Jane Burns was funny
but not as interesting as the other two.
The movie is fun and a good laugh
I thought this movie was hilarious! It was funny as hell. Plus it's from a woman's perspective which was a nice change from the usual. Most movies you see aren't really like that. You kind of have to have an open mind about it though. Some people might be offended by it or think it's kind of dumb but if you watch it just remember to have a sense of humor! I think the reason some people don't like it is because they are just too uptight about it and it makes them uncomfortable. And I think so far all the people I've seen who's had a problem with it were all guys. Get over it! There has been a lot of people who disagree with this movie but what about movies like "American Pie". Is that movie not just as bad? I think this movie was so much more clever than that. I like this movie a lot.
I don't know why people don't like this film. It's one of the best films I have ever seen, and that's saying something! I think people take this film too seriously, it's just a light-hearted comedy. I mean there are so many funny scenes. There's the scene with the motorcyclist driving past Courtney and Christina when they one of them is getting the lip gloss lid off of the floor of the car, though it looks like she is giving the other head! Then there is also The Penis Song...What's not to like? I wish more movies were this hilarious. This is definitely a movie classic! To the other person who commented on this film and said it lacked class and was crass, boring and witless. You obviously need to get a sense of humour. I mean Something About Mary is perhaps one of the worse movies I have ever seen.
Blatant attempt to recreate "There's Something About Mary," as Diaz is plopped into another movie that mixes tasteless humor with corny romance. While it's not as good as TSAM, it's quite funny and reasonably sweet. The main problem with the film is one of momentum. It will be skating along on an amusing riff or a sweet moment and then stumble and find itself splayed out on the sidewalk, looking confused. One doesn't feel deeply about the movie's rather sketchily drawn characters, weakening the dramatic moments, and the comedy, while more hit than miss, does miss more than one would like. But while all of these keeps it from being a great movie, it's really quite an enjoyable one.
hillarious yet immature but thats what i loved about it. very funny and well directed. i love christina applegate. i thought selma blair looked to young for the role but she was also very funny. a great first script from miss nancy pimental
I have seen this movie over ten times and every time I see it, it cracks me up! I know practically every line in this movie. This type of humor is brilliant. Not to sound too stereotypical, but this movie is definitely a chick flick. It has so many scenes that can be related to what women go through. Some of it is slightly over exaggerated. But that's what movies do. They of course embellish for the audience. Anyone who doesn't "get" this movie, has no sense of humor! This movie kicks ass!
I loved this movie. I almost didn't see it because I expected it to be a
typical romantic comedy chick-flick. Man I'm glad I was
It was good fun to see the tables turned. Also nice to see the women be in
the painful R-rated situations for a change (okay, so I have a nasty
I find it hard to understand why so many people give this movie such bad
reviews. Maybe it's something cultural, since most of the bad reviews seem
to come from people in the USA, where many people are still not able to
accept the revolutionary notion that women are people too.
So in short, if you're from outside the USA or have half a brain, watch this movie, dare to let yourself go and enjoy some good and pure humour.
I've read some terrible comments about this movie on this site, but I
it's all cos people are individuals, because I don't agree at all!
I decided to watch it since Christina Applegate is in it (I've loved her since "Married with children" - she's hilarious!) and boy did I make a great choice. This movie just goes from huge laugh to huge laugh! I can honestly say that I haven't laughed this much in years! At one point (you will know the scene if you've seen it...) I laughed so much I almost thought I'd choke! It was almost terrifying! LOL! I watched it in the early afternoon and in the evening that day my stomach was still aching from all the laughing. Maybe you need a certain kind of humor to appreciate this movie, but I sure recommend it for anyone who likes a FUN movie which stars cool girls with an attitude. I know I wrote this comment a bit late (I hadn't really started writing reviews for movies until this year), but I can still recommend this movie to anyone who is into comedies. It's easily the funniest movie of 2002 and one of the most funny movies I've seen in a very very long time. I was also very happy to see Christina in a fun role again. Perhaps I've missed her roles, or she just hasn't done many comedies that got lots of attention lately. I hope you also decide to watch it and enjoy it as much as I did!
I think this is such a cute movie! Yes it's not one that you get inspired by, but it makes you laugh and feel like 30 can be a fun age! It's also cool to see these fine actresses be so raunchy and not so much girl next door for once. I love it and watch it anytime I need a pick me up :-) I can understand why guys might have a problem with this movie due to all the jokes about them and stereotyping of what every man is, but come on it's just a comedy for us girls which we never get! It's always about the guy getting the girl and making all the shots- at least now we get to see what us girls really think and do! SO thank you to the the writers!!
