Lucy Ackerman: You know, I sort of like this dating thing, I'm sort of getting the things here. What I do is, sit back and watch as these strange men try to impress you in weird and stupid ways and then... and then you pick the least disgusting one, I guess.

really funny and smart
12 July 2000 | by DrayerSee all my reviews

Sarah Jessica Parker was extremely funny. Her role of Lucy Ackerman had a very cute playful nature, but was also very cold and distant. Joe played by Eric Schaeffer was just as funny. As a writer, I have to give him credit for the humor. It was a passing humor, that most people wouldn't get if they were expecting hollywood humor. The dialogue, plot, and humor all reminded me of an independant film. Ben Stiller was amazing. What a diverse actor he is. I recommend this movie to anyone who likes those cheesy romantic movies.
