Jason Lee rocks!
6 March 2004 | by See 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.
