When my twenty year old daughter came home from college, she went to the video store and came home with this film, a comedy with a fairly good cast. Neither I nor my daughter knew much about this movie. Well, were we in for a big surprise! The humor throughout was truly raunchy, ribald, and raw. It was also, at times, quite funny. If you are a fan of the Farrelly Brothers movies or enjoy crude comedies, then you may enjoy this. Instead of the guys being gross, however, it's the gals.
This movie revolves around three gal pals, Christina (Cameron Diaz), Courtney (Christine Applegate), and Jane (Selma Blair) and their close encounters with the male kind. The guys, however, definitely take a back seat to these three twenty something misses. I confess, it was a bit startling, though funny, to see these gals break into a song fit for a drunken stag party. Some of the scenes were done tongue and cheek. Check out the Dick and Jane scene. You will know the scene I mean, when you see it.
This film is not for those with delicate sensibilities, as erect male sex organs, anal sex, oral copulation, and other usually taboo subjects are ripe for gags, many of which, while filthy, are often funny. If you do not like your jokes down and dirty, then this is not the film for you. If you are broader minded, then you may enjoy Nancy Pimental's screenplay and the silly cavorting of the delightful Cameron Diaz, Christina Applegate, and Selma Blair, once you get over your initial shock.

This movie was no Mystic River or Titanic. However, when I bought it, that wasn't what I was looking for. This movie had me lauging harder that Something About Mary. Yea it's got some raunchy jokes and a(great)'gagging' scene but I think it is no worse than some similar movies with men in the leading roles. Can't handle the fact that women can have just as many dirty thoughts as men?? I highly recommend this if you once or twice had a wild time with friends or you just love clean raunchy fun. Don't watch if you are going to take this movie seriously and poo poo on it because it wasn't nominated for an Emmy.

This is definitely one of those movies that you'll be sitting there cringing at. It looks a fun girl flick judging the DVD by its cover, but when you actually watch the movie, it's got similar jokes from the American Pie trilogy and worse! Why the Cameron, Christina and Selma got involved in this movie is beyond me. I've seen a few movies with both Cameron & Selma in, but have only previously seen Christina in Friends, playing Rachel's sister. And Thomas Jane looking very silly with blonde hair.

In this movie, you discover cunnilingus between two women, talking about girth, a mystery stain on one of their dresses, reading toilet jokes on a male toilet wall, and leading to a hole in the wall, and Selma's character is literally "caught" giving head to one of her boy friends. So "caught", in fact, that the only way she is able to remove her mouth from the poor boy's pierced male anantomy is by singing, which the crowd that gathers helps her to do by singing along! The most cringe-worthy and excruciating of all this, is the three girls singing about a certain part of the male anatomy (is it just me, or has it suddenly got hot in here?) in a packed restaurant. I'm not a prude or anything, I just felt most of it was completely unnecessary, and pointless.

If you liked the American Pie trilogy and don't think you're buying a nice safe girly movie, then go for it! Some of it's funny, and it'd probably be even funnier on a second watching. Just be prepared.

Just incase you were curious, the leather-coat guy that picks-up Christina Applegate in the bar is her husband, Johnathon Schaech.

This is a wild, not ready for prime time over the top parody of the dating and night club scene. The script is ably written from the female point of view by Nancey Pimental, directed by Roger Kumble. The gals rule, and turn the tables making the guys uncomfortable. The three Hoties...Cameron Diaz, Selma Blair & Christina Applegate (as Christina, Courtney and Jane) really shine here pushing the envelope of romantic comedy. It's ribald but only implied, not truly offensive. Yes, it's a daring comedy but a breath of fresh air too. Mostly cliche until near the end when true, sobering feelings are expressed, Love almost triumphs...only Almost, as this is a spoof throughout, including the hilarious special features. A delightful soundtrack here too. I am reviewing the Unrated Version. Cheers and bottoms up!!

The difference between this movie and Sex and the City is that Sex & The City has a heart. Sarah J. Parker and cohorts have other things going on in their lives besides sex and when they discuss sex, it seems real. When the actresses in The Sweetest Thing talk about sex, it is forced and most importantly, unfunny. Case in point: The scene in the restaurant where they sing the song about the male organ? What is this? Did the male director of this movie honestly think that women would find this hysterical? Most women aren't going to laugh simply because someone mentions the word for male genitalia. The movie also misses the mark on several jokes that COULD have been funny (the fake boob scene, hole in the bathroom wall). Other parts of the script simply weren't thought through (when Jane gets "stuck")--how unrealistic! Yes..it is a comedy but the "stuck" scene in There's Something about Mary worked because it seemed real and because it was ORIGINAL!! I like Cameron Diaz and Christina Applegate and both actresses try so hard to get this movie to work, but there were times when I was shaking my head and thinking "Why?"
