Diane Farrow: There was this experiment where an electrode was planted in the pleasure center of a monkey's brain. When the monkey hit a button, it sent a signal to the electrode, in effect, exciting the monkey sexually.
Woman at luncheon: You're kidding.
Diane Farrow: No. Can you guess what happened?
Woman at luncheon: Was it a male monkey?
Diane Farrow: Yes.
Woman at luncheon: He slammed the button till he died.
Diane Farrow: Oh, so you know this experiment?
Woman at luncheon: I know men, honey.

Cute, funny, worth seeing.
11 July 2002 | by DraykovSee all my reviews

It is sort of a guilty pleasure, but I have to admit, I love this movie. Caveat: a lot of that has to do with the fact that I have a special place in my heart for Sandra Bullock. It seems some people have gone from loving her to trying to not love her. Me, I never got off the "loving her" bus.

With that said, this is a cute movie. Some of the humor is a bit crude, but not so much as to make the film seem moronic. It has a nice message and even though it is a bit dated and silly, I still get that warm, fuzzy, happy feeling when I watch it. There is extensive use of music from Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker within the film to amusing effect.
