The Sweetest Girly movie around...
12 April 2002 | by superkidd_1999See all my reviews

There are many movies where it is the "guy's" search for love tied in with his zainy adventures. Well, here is finally a movie that shows girls as they really are... hilarious, sexual creatures that own themselves. This is a very funny movie, go see it with some of your lady friends! It reminded me of my own group of gals... you all know who you are!
