Chick flick meets There's Something About Mary
4 June 2003 | by See all my reviews

When I first saw the previews this movie I dismissed it as just another chick flick. But after watching it, I must admit I was dead wrong. Though it is part chick flick, it's more like chick flick meets "There's Something About Mary". It was funny to see how women can get as downright raunchy as us guys. I think it tried to be like "Sex in the City". But it actually turned out much funnier and dirtier, and far more entertaining. How all of these people can give it such a low rating is beyond me. There must be a lot of prudes out there. I give it a 9 (only because I can't give it a 9.5).
