Alternate Versions

Several scenes that were shown in the previews were cut from the film (portions of some of these scenes can still be seen during the end credits blooper reel despite not being shown in the actual film) including:
  • Christina, in one car, notices Peter in another car and yells out "You!". When he sees her he forgets that the car door window is up and hits his head on it when he tries to stick his head out.
  • Towards the end when Christina chases after Peter her friends, at her apartment window, cheer her on telling her to "go get him!".
  • Jane says "What happened to my cool confident roommate?" and Courtney answers "It was all a facade".

Hilarious!
28 August 2002 | by Joyce PSee all my reviews

I don't really get it why most of the comments are so negative. I personally think the movie was very, very funny. Ok, perhaps some of the jokes were kind of predictable, but hey, once you've seen a few good jokes, all the lesser ones are funny too.

My friend and I picked this movie ten minutes before it started and without knowing what to expect. But we're certainly glad we chose this one.

I don't know wether there was poor acting in this film or that it should have been directed more professionally... I was just too busy laughing!!
