Trivia

The filmmakers tried to use artificial flowers as often as possible because Debra Messing is allergic to real flowers. See more »

Goofs

When Kat and Nick get on the boat, Kat's hair is mussed but as soon as Kat takes off her shirt her hair is perfectly in place. Clearly if it were mussed before, taking her shirt off should not make it better. See more »

light-hearted romantic
5 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

that is what i am and that is what this movie is. I don't think it is supposed to be a profoundly deep movie. This is a very welcomed break from the good, but overdone dramas of the day. I love them, but who doesn't like to see a guilty pleasure movie every now and then? This movie can cure the worst attitude and your craving fora good chick flick. It is very funny and the clichés they use are used to please the audience and the characters. so, i mean give it up, sit back, and just enjoy this very awesome movie.

The actors are very well cast, and while i must agree that some of the many plot lines are mostly left hanging, the important ones are not.
