Great movie with unique female characters (by roxydior)
How is this not hilarious? There are always movies that seem to make it big, like Wedding Crashers, Meet the Parents, and American Pie 1,2, and 3, Van Wilder, when the main characters are stereotypical male characters, but when it is women, expectations change and so do the double standards, which is disappointing in this day in age. The women in this movie are way funnier and do more interesting activities and funnies than the same old good old boys routine stuff. Some very unpredictable predicaments make this laugh out loud! I bought this movie in 2003 and have watched it with all my <more>
circles of friends and everyone from 19 to 64 have laughed out loud during this movie, which other movies are lucky if it barely happens once.I love the unrated version, the song and dance, and her sexy dream with Peter and when he "had all the calories taken out for you."
This is the best film I have seen in a long time. Is is completely hilarious. I loved this film. Cameron Diaz Christina and Christina Applegate Courtney seemed like they were friends since they were 2 years old. They definatly had charisma. They were completely hilarious together. I recommend this movie to anyone looking for a good laugh and good time.I set design was great. Very colourful.I loved the trendy outfits all 3 ladies wore. A fashionable Charlies Angeles. 10 out of 10 for comedy easily. Go, go now....
Sweet (by laugh4fun)
It was funny, sweet, romantic, and a total chick flick. I personally liked it a lot. I thought the jokes were funny and that the story line was really sweet. Yes, it was a little cheesy but that's ok. and there was one scene that was too amateur material for a box office movie. It looked like it belonged on a daytime kids tv series, like clueless or something. but i won't give anything away. I'd still watch it again even with that scene in it. i luved it!
BWA! (by mledinh)
I didn't expect to enjoy this movie but loved it almost from the start. I don't understand the scathing vitriol heaped at this movie from US critics -- how is it more "offensive" or "insulting" than 'American Pie' or 'Animal House'? Is it because in this movie the women are the ones being bawdy and crass and not in their usual roles as naive school girls, there to be played by the male leads? It's not a coincidence that the majority of critics who panned this movie are crotchety old men.I laughed out loud constantly, the dialogue was pretty good <more>
-- there were lots of quote-worthy scenes and the best part was that the girls seemed to have such a good time. I had fun watching them goofing around. The interaction between the female characters and the depth of their friendship was entirely realistic. Women DO sit around being crass, they DO sometimes use men for sex and leave them to eat dirt and have fun all the while.What endeared me forever was the scene where Christinia Applegate is dressed up as Vivian the hooker from 'Pretty Woman' -- her send up of Julia Robert's horsey overlaugh TM fametracker.com was SPOT. ON. America's Sweetheart? Gag me with a fork . The scene where Cameron Diaz kisses the male lead was great because the producers allowed her to get her lipstick all messed up. That is such a refreshing change from movies where the makers seem to think it's perfectly normal that a woman who has been skydiving/engaged in mortal combat/enjoyed a night lovin' has not even smudged her makeup.
I loved this movie I'm a guy because it shows how bad women are when we're not around. They talk about all the same things we do, just not in an open, loud sort of locker room way. Jason Bateman makes a great, although small, contribution which is good because I can't help but think it helped him land on "Arrested Development". Be sure to watch it with your girlfriend. That way you can watch for when she blushes, and that will tell you which of the on screen events she has actually experienced. My wife finally admitted to two or three. All of them before she met me of <more>
Chick flick meets There's Something About Mary (by Brui4ns1)
When I first saw the previews this movie I dismissed it as just another chick flick. But after watching it, I must admit I was dead wrong. Though it is part chick flick, it's more like chick flick meets "There's Something About Mary". It was funny to see how women can get as downright raunchy as us guys. I think it tried to be like "Sex in the City". But it actually turned out much funnier and dirtier, and far more entertaining. How all of these people can give it such a low rating is beyond me. There must be a lot of prudes out there. I give it a 9 only because I <more>
I really enjoyed this movie, as did my wife. We loved the comedy, the acting, and the plot. Granted, it's not oscar material. But it is a feel good movie with some great scenes.It's about three girls and their fear to commit to a man because they'll get heartbroken. They learn together and cry together, but most importantly, they laugh together. The whole movie is one long string of comedy, and the musical number will be in my top ten of all time. You'll know it when you see it.Check this movie out for a fun night with your wife. It's not for young viewers, however. Not a <more>
family movie. It's meant more for the dirty-minded, if you will. :
I tried to see this movie at the theatre when it was released, but the drive-in was always sold out when I attempted to see this movie. Taking a chance, I bought the R-rated version DVD and was not disappointed. I found it to be a cute but raunchy comedy about 3 women searching for love in San Francisco & beyond. The relationship between Cameron Diaz & Christina Applegate seemed to really 'click' in this movie. Selma Blair seemed to be added as the "straight man" for comedy impact. Judging from the other comments about this movie, not a lot of people liked it. I <more>
found it to be funny in parts, and enjoyable to watch. Christina Applegate was her usual funny self and really added a lot to this movie. It's nice to see her in the movies again. The last movie I bought with her in it was "Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter is Dead" from '91. Cameron Diaz was also funny in her role and demonstrated some great comedic talent. I am glad that I took the chance and bought this DVD on spec, because it is a valued addition to my video library.
Winning Performances by Diaz, Applegate (by jhclues)
A film that features a `Movie Montage' and divulges finally! why women really go to the restroom together, this is a fun and funny romp, a bit crude around the edges, perhaps, but for the most part, `The Sweetest Thing,' directed by Roger Kumble, is harmless, pleasant entertainment that will make you laugh out loud and feel good for the rest of the day. And that's not such a bad deal, in my book. Christina Cameron Diaz , Courtney Christina Applegate and Jane Selma Blair are close friends, single and young, who have for some time been living the high life in San Francisco, <more>
each of whom seems committed to avoiding commitment in any relationship except for Jane, who's been with the same guy for nearly a year now . Christina's motto is, Don't look for `Mr. Right,' look for `Mr. Right Now!' After all, girls just wanna have fun. But the men in their lives do not necessarily want to play the same game, which Jane finds out the hard way when her boyfriend dumps her suddenly. And though they don't realize it at first, Jane's situation is about to become the catalyst for all of them to do some reevaluating as to where all the fun, freedom and frolicking is taking them in their lives. They're all closing in on thirty Christina is twenty-eight, the others about the same , and somehow, the `love em and leave em' thing doesn't seem to be all that fun anymore. And wouldn't you know it, Christina has just met a guy named Peter Thomas Jane at a nightclub, but doesn't realize how much she is attracted to him until after she lets him slip away. And the next day she just can't quit thinking about him. Suddenly, the shoe is on the other foot, and Christina discovers that it's just not such a good fit... Bolstered by the engaging performances of his leading ladies, as well as a terrific supporting cast, Kumble has crafted and delivered a comedy that provides plenty of laughs and a good time for all. Written by Nancy M. Pimental a staff writer for TV's `South Park' , it's romantic without being sappy, and raunchier than what you usually get when the story is presented from the female perspective. Even so, it barely skirts Farrelly Brothers territory, comparatively, except for one scene-- involving a `piercing'-- that may be a bit too much for some tastes; but even that scene is carefully structured and presented in such a way that the filmmakers were clearly going for just plain funny, rather than anything gross or offensive. And-- subjectively, at any rate-- they succeeded. The story reflects a certain moral ambiguity consistent with today's society similar in that regard to such TV shows as `Friends' , but this film is not meant to be taken too seriously or pondered too deeply; it's a film that was made to make you laugh. And it does. Cameron Diaz is a wonderful actor who can do drama with the best of them As Julie in `Vanilla Sky,' or Carol in `Things You Can Tell Just by Looking at Her,' for example , but she definitely has a natural affinity for comedy Kim, in `My Best Friend's Wedding,'-- in which she steals the show from Julia Roberts-- or Mary, in `There's Something About Mary' . She's a gifted, charismatic beauty with a grounded, down-to-earth sense of who she is and what she can do, and apparently has no problem with putting ego and vanity aside in deference to the demands of her craft. And it's an attitude that's enabled her to create a lasting impression and some truly memorable characters in film after film, as she does here with her Christina which is one of the main reasons this film is so palatable . She has an alluring screen presence that serves her well as it does her films , and she just keeps getting better and better with every project. Another reason this film works so well is because of Christina Applegate, who gives a winning performance as Courtney. Pairing her with Diaz was inspired casting; they play beautifully off of one another, and it makes their scenes together a delight to watch. Some of the things they do is just flat out funny-- like their `Movie Montage,' which is absolutely hilarious. Like Diaz, Applegate has a natural charm that comes through well on the big screen, and this film, hopefully, should prove to be the catalyst that will finally take her career in that direction and enable her to at last shed her `Kelly Bundy' persona, once and for all. As Jane, Selma Blair also makes a good impression, even though-- due to the storyline-- she is somewhat overshadowed by her co-stars. Her part may be smaller, but she has her moments, and manages to hold her own during her scenes with Diaz and Applegate. Turning in notable performances, as well, are Thomas Jane, as the guy who may or may not be `the one' in Christina's life; indie queen Parker Posey, who brings her trademark quirkiness to the role of Judy, the beautiful bride; and Jason Bateman, who's become an outstanding character actor he's come a long way since `Silver Spoons' , as Roger, Peter's brother. Rounding out the supporting cast are Damon Williams Wedding Guest , Georgia Engel Vera , Johnathon Schaech Leather Coat Guy , Eddie McClintock Michael , Don Winston Eric , Manny Rodriguez Paramedic and Andrea Sabesin Sheila . A right-on comedy that is going to appeal to a wide audience, not only because of the performances, but because it's clever, agreeable and accessible, `The Sweetest Thing' is exactly what it is supposed to be: Funny. Still, be forewarned-- there are a couple of scenes that will be hard for those with certain sensibilities to embrace, and accordingly, it has an `R' rating. But if you can go with the flow, and think Chaucer, Rabelais and Balzac, this is one you're going to enjoy. It's the magic of the movies. 8/10.
