Overview

Former South Park writer and Win Ben Stein's Money sidekick Nancy Pimental makes her feature screenwriting debut with this relationship comedy. Cameron Diaz stars as Christina Walters, a jaded, club-hopping single woman in San Francisco who has given up trying to find the perfect mate to focus on "Mr. Right Now." Her equally cynical friend, Courtney (Christina Applegate), a divorce attorney, shares much the same attitude, while their pal, Jane (Selma Blair), is more starry-eyed and naïve. Christina's attitude gets an unexpected makeover one evening at a nightclub when she meets Peter Donahue (Thomas Jane), a real estate agent she finds adorable and just about perfect. Unfortunately, Peter leaves and all Christina knows about him is that his brother, Roger (Jason Bateman), is getting married soon in their small hometown. Recognizing her friend's romantic distress, Courtney suggests they road trip to the wedding and Christina agrees, leading to encounters with a series of obstacles, including some funky leftovers, a filthy service station restroom, and a rather unpleasant revelation once the women arrive at the nuptials. The Sweetest Thing co-stars Parker Posey.

Editorial Reviews

Washington Post - Stephen Hunter
Clever packaging of boy fantasy and girl fantasy.
Los Angeles Times
A movie with a real anarchic flair.
Hollywood Reporter
Diaz can blunder into the crudest situations with such sweet innocence as to inspire giggles rather than groans.

I usually like Cameron Diaz, but this movie was a snoozer. Very poorly acted...had potential..but never quite there.

I think that every single girl should watch this movie! It relates to girls every where. It takes the girls point of view and not what guys think that girls act like! Make sure to get the unrated version. The penis song makes the movie!

Christina (Diaz) has become my idol. Spunky and confident, she and her friends live life to its fullest. This is the most entertaining movie I've ever seen.

There were some scenes which I would not want to watch with my mother around (no matter how old you are) but overall, it was just hysterical. Cute story, great writing. I was howling at some scenes...and I was skeptical about watching it. If you liked Something about Mary - watch this. If you weren't crazy about Mary, watch this -- its even better!!!!! Best comedy I've seen in a long time.

Quite the chick flick.....a great look at the female side of dating. Christina was wonderful. Although it was a light hearted movie, Cameron Diaz's performance left a bit to be desired. I enjoyed her performace much more in ''There's Something About Mary''. The soundtrack was fantastic...(wish I could find the CD-I've looked everywhere)..Gotta love the penis song!!!

This movie is disgusting. Thomas Jane, who plays Mr. Right, Peter, is the only good thing about this movie. The rest is garbage.

I love this movie!! I've seen it over and over again!! My friends and I watch it and can relate (oddly) to some of the things the girls do!! This movie is hysterical!

I love this movie and can't recommend it enough! For the cute version, watch it rated. For true insight to a woman's mind (and yes, heart), don't miss the unrated version! Cameron Diaz, Selma Blair, and Christina Applegate are absolutely stunning to watch, and keep you laughing and wanting more! Buy it now and watch it over and over again! =)
