Critic Consensus: Wasting the talent of its leads, this predictable romantic comedy relies on cheap laughs.

Critic Reviews for A Guy Thing

All Critics (113) | Top Critics (33)

If you ever admired Julia Stiles, Selma Blair and Jason Lee -- and who didn't? -- don't watch them crush their careers in this laugh-free romantic comedy from the director of Snow Day.

Rolling Stone
Top Critic

The three move through a faded deck of clichés ... with a convincing impression of having fun, helped along by a snazzy '60s-'70s soundtrack and bit-part fillips.

Top Critic

Cycles through the same old cliches, like squares accidentally being dosed with drugs, overzealous pharmacists blaring out sensitive medical information (nothing like a good ol' venereal disease joke), and climactically scotched weddings. [Blu-ray]

Lame, crude descendent of Meet the Parents.

Would feel a lot emptier without the lively actors populating it.

I can't imagine this painfully unfunny and often boring movie being a 'thing' for guys or gals.

Audience Reviews for A Guy Thing

Forgetable and not that great! Got bored throughout the film!

Super Reviewer

Don't let the title fool you because this film's for guys and girls. A brilliant cast with Julia Stiles and Jason Lee starring in a hilarious, romantic tale of meeting the right person close to a wedding with the wrong one, and all of the complications that arise due to the fact that she's his fiance's cousin. Memorable gags and running jokes that never grow stale.
