Trivia

At the first wedding, Jennifer Lopez's character Maria comforts the bride by complimenting her great thighs. This may be a small reference to the huge media focus on Jen's "big" thighs when she first began her singing career. See more »

Goofs

Steve only eats the brown M&M's and discards the rest because he doesn't want to eat the color dyes. In fact, the candy coating is actually white. All M&M's are dyed. See more »

Not Enough Redeeming Qualities
15 July 2001 | by DanB-4See all my reviews

Let's make a list of the major flaws in this movie.

1. Jennifer Lopez is one of, if not, the most famous Latina entertainers in the world. Why make her Italian?

2. Justin Chambers is horrible as the love forlorn Italian immigrant. His accent is so bad is ruins his otherwise likable character.

3. Lopez and Matthew McConaughey generate no chemistry. I just did not care what happened to them. I hoped that Lopez would go for the other guy.

4. This movie is an excuse to promote Lopez songs.

Movies in which a bright and intelligent woman falls for a spineless letch are starting to wear on me. I just could not believe that a character as strong a Lopez's would fall for such a weiner.

That said, Brigette Wilson and Alex Rocco are great, and there are some fun moments in this film. But please - did the makers of this film watch the scene where Lopez takes a bottle of "solvent" out of her purse to remove a stone penis that his glued to McConaugehy's hand? Good thing she had that solvent! ** out of ****.
