See more »

Goofs

When Loudon flips through the pre-nuptial agreement, the first few text pages he flips through are identical. When he gets to the sexual position diagrams, the various icons repeat on various pages. This is because Wendy's father wants to make sure Louden and Wendy don't have sex. It is his way of overkill. See more »

Quotes

Nikki Finn: Cops stop me, they find Johnny in a lot of pieces in the back of my car. Judge called it a "crime of passion."
Nikki Finn: [slight pause] Hey, I liked Johnny, but not enough to kill him.

Surprisingly Funny
5 January 2001 | by The_HueySee all my reviews

There was so much bad press when this movie was released that I avoided it with all cost. Just the other day I was in a video store that was showing it over their monitors and the few minutes I caught seemed really funny so I rented it. To my surprise, I thought this was one of the funniest movies I have ever seen. I mean it's a completely silly, screwball comedy, just what I would expect from such a movie. I don't get why most people hated it, I laughed from beginning to end. I am a big fan of Bringing Up Baby and What's Up Doc and in my humble opinion this fits right in with those two. As for Madonna, I'm a fan of her music, especially the last two CD's but feel she is sort of stiff on screen. I feel her best performances were in Evita and A League of Their Own and I would now add Who's that Girl? to this list. She comes across very natural and you can tell she's having a blast with this character. Give this movie a chance. Most stores rent it for a buck and if you really don't like then turn it off, but don't be surprised if you find yourself viewing a guilty pleasure.
