On their way home from a nightclub towards the end of the movie, there is a close-up of the three girls, shoulder to shoulder in the back seat of a taxi, presumably so they all fit into the shot. Next is a wide exterior shot of the taxi and the girls are spread out across the back seat, with plenty of space between them. See more »


Peter: Christina Walters? Yep. I know her. Bitch. First she tries to pawn me off on her friend, then she stalks me at my own wedding. Then she says "I have no feelings for you. Blah, blah, blah, wah, wah, wah, yada, yada yada - "
[Pulls Christina over the couch and they begin kissing happily]

Devastatingly Dumb---and Fun ^_^
9 March 2003 | by See all my reviews

While not meant to be taken at all seriously, The Sweetest Thing is a great movie to watch with the gals when you're looking for something light and funny. It's almost like the female There's Something About Mary; it has a lot of bathroom humor, which I usually am not really amused by, but this works, and it's basically just about three best friends just being happy, which is a nice message for a change. I couldn't believe the things in it, though, since I thought the movie was PG-13 the first time I watched it. O_o The best touch is that it's slightly absurd, like Wet Hot American Summer, which brings in more attention and unparalleled amusement. Highly recommended for girls--they'd enjoy it a lot more than guys...it's the Rated R Chick Flick.

7/10--rather silly, but cute and feel good all the same ^_^
