| Not too shabby
I've read many of the comments left by previous viewers. If you glance over them, you will notice a pattern. Most of the scathing, heated comments are left by men, while the praising and positive ones are left by women. That should leave you with this logical conclusion. This is not a movie that most men will enjoy. This is a movie primarily aimed at single women (although I'm married and I found it amusing). Also, I realized that for some reason, people just can't seem to resist comparing this to "There's Something About Mary." I could be wrong, but I don't think this is supposed to be a sequel or anything of the sort, so why compare? It's two different movies. If you're a single female, who likes to have fun and not take things so seriously, I would highly recommend this movie. If you're male or of the Ethan Frome-type movie goer--then this is not for you. Enjoy.

Critic Reviews

Did You Know?


A line in which a character makes a offensive joke about Costa Rican women had to be changed for the film's release in that country.


Christina, Courtney: These are..."The Days Of Our Lives"!


When Courtney is driving the car and Christina is looking under the driver's seat, the close ups show a four-lane road, while the aerial shots show only a two lane road.

Crazy Credits

The closing credits show a montage of scenes, outtakes and the 5 main cast members are sitting on a couch talking directly to the audience. After the credits roll, the cast tells the audience that the movie is over, and to go home.

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".
