"Cameron Diaz plays Christina, a woman who's in denial of fearing commitment. Her room-mates Courtney and Jane, played by Christina Applegate and Selma Blair, are also in the same predicament. They go to a dance club and Christina grabs into Peter, played by Thomas Jane. Sensing chemistry without getting the whole story, Christina and Courtney take a road trip to find him. The commercial for this movie makes it look like a chick flick; but, in reality, it's more of a female skin fest, featuring Cameron Diaz and Christina Applegate in very skimpy outfits. I couldn't quite figure out why this movie is rated R. Scary Movie (the first one) had grosser humor in it than this and it was rated PG-13. The storyline gets a bit erratic at times. The film editor seems to be a bit asleep at the wheel. It does have it's funny moments, including a... uhhh, tonsil piercing of sorts. ;) Pre-movie warnings: VERY brief nudity (male butt cheeks), profanity, a truckload of innuendo, ladies' room groping, some off-key singing on Cameron's part, and the re-immergence of the acting career of Jason Bateman (don't ask me why).A semi-decent matinee date movie; but, I wouldn't shell out the night time bucks on this one."
GIRLS JUST WANNA HAVE FUN...

"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."
Five Stars for Being Funny & Original!

"Another great title for this flick would have been "The Secret Life of Girls", because the behavior you'll see here is more akin to the ~actual~ behavior of Girlus Americanus than the silly flakes we usually see on film. Bawdy humor (female style!), a (too) brief men's bun shot, and even a bonus musical number entitled "The Pen*s Song" in the unrated version (Mucho Hilarious). This film is silly and light hearted, offering up punchline after punchline and twist after twist. I wouldn't say this is a "chick flick" in the conventional sense. There's none of that sappy over-emotionalism. Although the main actors are gals, the behaviors they exhibit are easily understood by both sexes. Ladies, you'll be laughing and nodding in agreement with the actors throughout. Men--not to worry, every guy I know has laughed throughout this movie, & two of my buddies even bought the dvd. Plenty of eye candy for guys & gals. If you liked "Something About Mary", you're gonna love this film!"
Disappointing, when it could have been fun

"Big names, but strictly a film for teenage boys to snigger at. It's rated 18 - anyone older than that will be disappointed.I think this movie must have been intended as an `American Pie' with women outside their teens. You know, raunchy, fun, yet with the grace of knowing what it is and laughing at itself and the world. Whatever, I am stunned that Cameron Diaz and Selma Blair would put their names to this tacky piece of film that is an excuse for pretty women to shake their booty and talk (and sing!) about male anatomy. Intelligent this is not. Christina Applegate's defining TV character Kelly might have written, produced and starred in this it is so mindless and immature. But here Applegate is the `mature' one - a foil to Diaz's ditzy character. Perhaps this film is supposed to be striking a blow for feminism - you know, girls can be shallow and only after one thing too. That message is clear in the first five minutes of the film - I'm only sorry I spent the next 82 minutes of my life watching it to see if maybe there was something more. There wasn't."
Embarrasing Piece Of Junk, Don't Waste Your Time Or Money

"I was embarrassed for the actress's involved that is how bad it was. The movie is nothing but a series of crude jokes. All it does is make all three women appear trashy! I think they were trying to make an all female version of Something About Mary. They failed.By the way I liked Something About Mary. Men may enjoy this far more than women."
