I admit this movie is silly, unnecessary, and throwaway. I still laughed in a lot of places. I also groaned in a few places too. Example: When Paul Coleman (Jason Lee) found Becky's (Julia Stiles) panties when his fiance was on the way over, he searched all over the apartment for a place to hide them, ultimately hiding them in the toilet. You knew what was going to happen, and what did happen. Also, there was a running joke about pictures of Becky and Paul, which we never got to see, being found by a minister's son, who also happened to live in the same apartment building. The son kept finding the pictures and the minister kept bringing them back. *sigh*.
The tale is a bit hackneyed as well. Girl and guy are prepared to be married, seemingly the perfect couple. Guy meets another girl, girl meets another guy, everyone wonders what's wrong with this picture; guess how it all turns out? SURPRISE!!! NOT!!!
In spite of a re-tread plot, and in spite of the groans, there were places that this movie was creative and humorous; not many, but enough that I felt that watching the movie wasn't a complete waste of time. I felt a bit guilty watching this movie because I knew the premise had been done (and done, and done), and many of the jokes were weak, and yet, I like the movie. I think that one thing that really saved this movie was Julia Stiles. She really is not centrally involved in all the happenings, occasionally appearing aloof, and she manages to escape this movie leaving everyone watching with a positive impression.Read more ›
I can't help it, I like this movie. Maybe it's a "Guy Thing".
There isn't a legitimate laugh in this entire boring movie, and Stiles and Lee have literally NO chemistry together...when they kiss at the end, it's like watching two cousins buss each other at a family picnic. Unsexy, unromantic, unfunny. DO NOT BOTHER to watch or rent this...you have better things to do.
It's only a week until the wedding, and life around mild-mannered Paul (Jason Lee) is hectic. His future in-laws are wealthy and snobbish. His own parents are humiliating and funny. His fiance Karen (Selma Blair) is just about too good to be true. And then something happens that sends his world spinning out of orbit. He wakes up one morning with a Tiki dancer in his bed. One too many drinks at his bachelor party has brought Becky (Julia Stiles) into his life. Believing he has cheated on Karen with her, he desperately attempts to conceal this major blunder from the curiosity of family and friends, hoping he'll never run into the fun loving blonde again. But she just keeps appearing in his life ... taking tickets at a local parking lot, stocking shelves at the nearby store ...
And then comes the major whammy, the discovery that she is Karen's cousin. Believing this won't completely get out of hand, Paul is certain he can handle it -- and then come the photographs. They're in the hands of Becky's psychotic ex-boyfriend, who is happiest when beating "not-so-innocent" bystanders into a pulp. Becky is like no one he has ever met, willing to face life with high expectations and squeeze every last drop of excitement out of it. She's everything that Karen isn't, a fact that slowly begins to seep into him as the wedding days draw ever-nearer.Read more ›
