| Funny and simple, decent entertainment.
A Guy Thing was very funny, not intellectual humor, but just simple, fun humor. Jason Lee is hilarious as always and needs to keep searching for that role that is gonna make him a huge name. Julia Stiles is the definition of cute, anything that stars her is bound to do well. I was most impressed with Selma Blair, she has had many roles over the last few years, and she is a very talented actress and needs to go after some bigger lead roles; she has great potential. The story for A Guy Thing is very predictable (if you saw the trailer, you know the movie already,) but go see it for laughs, it really is a good time:)

Did You Know?


Julia Stiles, Selma Blair and Shawn Hatosy previously costarred in 'Down to You.' (2000)


Paul: Then how did I get crabs?
Becky: You've got crabs?
Paul: Yeah. You gave me crabs.
Paul: You don't?
Becky: No. But if I do I'm going to hunt you down and kill your crabby ass.


The sequence where Paul tries to escape from the bathroom is shortened, and a portion of it in which Paul removes his shoes is cut. However the following shots were not updated and thus, when Paul climbs back into the bathroom, his shoes are magically off of his feet and he's carrying them from his teeth.

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.
