Erica: I'm so glad they still work. I haven't used them for kissing in such a long time, more like for wearing lipstick... and whistling.

Good!
23 May 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is funny, cute, light-hearted, serious all rolled into one movie.

Diane gives her all in the movie, she unleashes all the insane things women go through in life. Her story is fascinating. Jack Nicholson is of course his usual "swaggering" self in this movie. He gives us his normal antics throughout the movie. His "heart-attacks" are priceless. You can't help but love him! Keanu, he is incredible in this movie. He is sincere, intelligent and magical. Amanda Peet, is over the top as in most of her roles. Overall this movie was excellent!
