Goofs

When the babysitter is putting the baby in the crib, as she first stands there holding it, you can clearly see by the stiff limbs that it is a doll. The next cut, with the camera looking in past her shoulder, does show a real baby. See more »

In A Word? Confusing
8 August 2002 | by xxSURViVESee all my reviews

This movie made absolutely no sense to me. Maybe because I'm only fourteen, but I watched it with my mom and I have to say I think you'd have to be a genius to follow along. Everyone seems to have some sort of obsession with Alicia Silverstone...sure, she's pretty, but how can at least 3 guys have such similarly perverted visions about the same girl? I mean, even the kid had a vision of her and he's, what, TEN? She's pretty but we can't over-exagerate ((sorry, I'm not great with spelling and grammar, I'm still a kid)) on it. Whoop-di-do what's so great about her? Maybe it's because I'm a girl? Well whatever it was, I personally found this movie unbecoming and confusing.
