Quotes:
Chris:[thinking] This is it. You're finally going to have sex with Jamie Palamino. Oh God, look at that face. Look at that body. Why are you smiling like a fricken idiot? Go on. Make a move. MAKE A MOVE!
[takes a deep breath]
Jamie Palamino:What's on your mind?
Chris:[awkwardly] Bush. President Bush. The first family, really.
Jamie Palamino:[Jamie sighs and rolls over]
Chris:[thinking] Dude! You're killing me! This is the girl of your dreams! Ravish her! What if she doesn't want to be ravished? What if she wants to stay friends? Friends don't ravish each other. Friends watch New Years Rockin' Eve. I wonder who's hosting this year.
Jamie Palamino:Chris, can you put your feet on mine? They're freezing.
Chris:Yeah.
[thinking while cuddling up behind Jamie]
Chris:Hell yeah. Her feet aren't even cold. This is it. Don't even think about how weird tomorrow's going to be.

Simply a fun movie., 13 December 2005
Author: wmg1299 from United States

This is funny film that you can see with anyone. The humor is universal and hits home with anyone who's ever had any sort of dating relationship. The best thing is that the laughs come from hilarious situations that you could explain to your parents without feeling uncomfortable. This is one of the few funny movies I've seen recently that avoids any crude toilet or sexual humor, and gets it's laughs from simple social situations. I loved American Pie, but would feel weird discussing the funny parts with anyone I didn't know very well. This movie deserves more credit for humor derived strictly from believable social situations.
