I am writing because the only person, so far, who has posted a comment was clearly a man. It is so easy for someone to dismiss this movie as a "chick flick," but it only falls into that category if you are the kind of man who is totally out of touch emotionally.

Juliette Lewis is, as always, fun to watch, and she handles her small role perfectly.
