Goofs

When Ray shoves Paul in the dumpster and rolls it down the alley, it is on the left hand side with the lids opening out. When the dumpster hits a pole and Paul climbs out, the lids are again opening out towards the middle of the alley. See more »

Quotes

Paul: [after finding out they didn't do it] Then how did I get crabs?
Becky: You've got crabs?
Paul: Yeah. You gave me crabs.
Becky: I DO NOT HAVE CRABS!
Paul: You don't?
Becky: No. But if I do I'm going to hunt you down and kill your crabby ass.

Alternate Versions

There are three alternate endings on the DVD.
  • 1. Paul stays at the church after the wedding guests have left. Becky comes back looking for her purse and finds Paul lying on one of the benches. She asks him if he's going to be there all day and he says he isn't. Then she invites him to go for a walk. They stroll together down the streets.
  • 2. After the wedding scene, a montage follows of Paul asking people where Becky is. When he finally gets a lead, he finds Becky as a tour guide atop the Space Needle. This one was not used because preview audiences felt Paul took too long in trying to find her.
  • 3. Same as Space Needle ending, only Paul gets to Becky fairly soon and there is no search montage. After they decide to be together, they go to the elevator and run into Minister Ferris and his family but with less tension this time.

Jason Lee rocks!
6 March 2004 | by PookyiscuteSee all my reviews

Can Jason Lee ever make a movie and be bad in it? I love him. He is one of the most talented actors out there today and I think he should receive so much more credit for his work than he does. Julia Stiles is clever in the movie and better than she was in some of the other roles she's received lately but, no one compares to Selma Blair in the film. She's by far and away the best character and actor in the movie. She is such a talent and as much as I love Lee, she in some ways surpasses him this film.

Basic Plot: What would you do if the morning after your bachelor party, you woke up with a cute blond in your bed, and she's not your fiance? Well, if you were Jason Lee's character, you would probably hide her underwear that she left in your apartment in the toilet bowel, right before your fiance comes over that morning.

This is just one of the few misfortunes, Lee runs into in the film. Full of chaos and one wrong lie and mistake after the other, he falls into something much deeper than he had anticipated, possibly even love...

A great film, and really funny. One of the few comedies that you're willing to watch again only a little while after you've seen it.

I give it a 7 out of 10. Not the funniest, but better than a lot of the crud that's out there right now.

And that's my review.
