Extremely lowbrow -- definitely not for kids.
| Original Score: 3/5
It's not great or inspired by any means, but it's cute and amusing enough.
| Original Score: 4/5
Call it a younger, West Coast cousin to Sex and the City, or There's Something About Mary from the woman's point of view.
| Original Score: 3/4
If a date suggests the two of you should go and see this film dump them.
| Original Score: 1/5
...Mixes smut and wacky girlfriend antics in equal parts, often scoring the guilty chuckle in spite of itself, with plenty of bra-and-panty shots to please the guys.
Just when you think it's going to be a sappy chick flick, The Sweetest Thing surprises with a lewd joke or half-naked girl.
| Original Score: 7.5/10
Cameron Diaz "comedy" follows the Farrelly brothers' path with degrading, unfunny "jokes" that make you feel unclean just watching them.
Fundamentally ugly in its supposition of normalcy in its uncreative, sex-starved protagonists.
The overriding effect of watching these actresses debase themselves is the cinematic equivalent of a motorway car wreck.
| Original Score: 2/5
...'forgettable' is one of the best things one could call this film.
| Original Score: C
Una especie de There's Something about Mary pero que no termina de cuajarse en algo concreto y termina siendo una... una... una no s qu es lo que termina siendo!
Female characters should be allowed to engage in raunchy humor on the big screen; they already do on the small one with Sex and the City. But unlike that HBO series, The Sweetest Thing has no guts.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
...this one can't be recommended as a way to spend an hour and a half...you won't get it back.
| Original Score: 3.5/10
All right, so it's not a brilliant piece of filmmaking, but it is a funny (sometimes hilarious) comedy with a deft sense of humor about itself, a playful spirit and a game cast.
There's a frantic, anything-goes quality to "Sweetest" that's appealing at first, until it becomes apparent the movie has little more to offer than the friskiness of its stars...
The Sweetest Thing could have been a major summer underdog hit. Don't get me wrong. It's not a very good movie.
What's most wonderful is that all the heartless, cruel cads are played by women, and the seemingly sensitive, prey being stalked are played by guys.
Thoroughly noxious offspring of 'There's Something About Mary' and 'Sex & the City'.
This picture is one of the flattest, stupidest, unfunniest sex comedies -- as well as one of the worst all-round pictures -- I've ever seen.
A sour attempt at making a Farrelly Brothers-style, down-and-dirty laugher for the female set.
