Mildly Entertaining Fluff
A young man named Paul (Jason Lee) is on the verge of marriage. At his bachelor party he meets a dancing "tiki girl" named Becky (Julia Stiles) as part of the hooting and hollering bedlam. Romantic complications ensue.

Set in Seattle, the film does have a few things going for it. Both Jason Lee and Julia Stiles give nice performances. Both the film editing and the color cinematography are professionally well done. There are some funny lines of dialogue. And I liked the sequence that has a band playing "Born Free"; what's amusing here is that the song is so humorously out of place.

But the film's concept is not exactly original; and the ending is predictable. The plot moves along rather weakly, owing to contrived coincidences and to Paul's far-fetched lies. Most of the characters are highly animated, but also stereotyped. The Jim character, for example, is your typical college-aged frat rat; he mutters dialogue that is mostly banal, like: "Paul, listen to me ... we're men; we're hunters; it's encrypted in our DNA code; you gotta accept that, buddy".

Despite a weak script, "A Guy Thing" is not bad, especially if you want a movie that does not require heavy-duty thinking. The story lacks both subtlety and thematic depth; what you see and hear is what you get. But that's not unusual for a romantic comedy. As such, the film could be summarized as mildly entertaining cinematic fluff.
