You may feel like taking a vow of abstinence yourself -- at least from Hollywood youth-sex comedies.

This is a movie that longs to be naughty, but never knows how to go far enough to truly surprise.

'An admittedly raunchy but smart satirical poke at sexual politics in the information age. It's also funnier than we have any right to expect.'
| Original Score: 3/4

The script boils down to 90 minutes of dirty jokes. Most of them are funny and some are hilarious.

Hartnett may grow into a major film star someday with better material, but this is a one-night stand he'll want to forget.

So wildly incoherent in tone, ambition and character motivation that it's hard to believe it was ever written out in longhand from start to finish.
June 4, 2002
This is a movie full of sex jokes, but they don't involve mechanics and fluids so much as the nature of sex and the way it governs young life.
| Original Score: 3/4

Robert Perez's screenplay takes largely predictable roads, most of them leading straight to Jigglesville, with detours along the way to Viagra Falls and Bulgeburg.

Raunchy dialogue and sexually explicit sequences overshadow the film's slight hint that factors other than sex might also be important in human relationships.

Then, there's the seen-that-before scene of poor Matt walking around with a protrusion he seems blithely unaware of that seems to go to some preposterously immense proportions.

A dulling experience. The movie screams been there, done that and offers nothing new to the table.

Why do screenwriters demean women in these movies by having them find these lunk-headed doofuses so attractive?

Not the funniest film ever on this subject, but a nice statement and satire on relationships today.

... a ridiculously lame film that has absolutely nothing to say about real life or love.

Nothing more than a lame vehicle for teen heartthrob Josh Hartnett.

A parody on sexual preoccupation in a pastel-colored unreality.

it is essentially a slightly more mature gross-out comedy

The premise is groan-inducing, the execution doubly so.

The material may be lightweight, but it's been shaped into a film that deserves to become a classic in an admittedly lightweight genre.
