...'forgettable' is one of the best things one could call this film.
| Original Score: C
It's deep-sixed by a compulsion to catalog every bodily fluids gag in There's Something About Mary and devise a parallel clone-gag.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
Loses its sense of humor in a vat of failed jokes, twitchy acting, and general boorishness.
Derivative to the point of annoyance, it includes near copycat nods to Not Another Teen Movie, Scary Movie, American Pie -- anything in which yuk-'em-up sex jokes take center stage.
| Original Score: C
Cameron Diaz "comedy" follows the Farrelly brothers' path with degrading, unfunny "jokes" that make you feel unclean just watching them.
| Original Score: 1/5
Thoroughly noxious offspring of 'There's Something About Mary' and 'Sex & the City'.
The Sweetest Thing has nothing insightful to say about relationships, and nothing funny to say about the singles scene.
It is a goulash made of leftovers that weren't good to begin with.
| Original Score: D+
[Screenwriter] Pimental took the Farrelly Brothers comedy and feminized it, but it is a rather poor imitation.
A coarse and stupid gross-out.
Essentially a collection of bits -- and they're all naughty.
| Original Score: 2/5
For the most part, The Sweetest Thing left a sour taste.
An overstimulated sex comedy with a stifling lack of humor.
In the process of trimming the movie to an expeditious 84 minutes, director Roger Kumble seems to have dumped a whole lot of plot in favor of...outrageous gags.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Diaz wears out her welcome in her most charmless performance
| Original Score: D
Sewer rats could watch this movie and be so skeeved out that they'd need a shower.
| Original Score: 2/10
If you laugh at this badly made recycled trash dump ... it may be because you are amused at seeing women doing the same revolting stuff men do, and being forced to suffer the very same consequences.
| Original Score: 1/4
For those who think that movies by the Farrelly brothers or Todd Solondz are the Mount Kilimanjaro of bad taste, it's time to grab your parka and goggles -- there's a new peak to climb.
The Sweetest Thing wanders into such ironies and shoddily exploits them. The title is even a bad joke: This movie is to sweet as a dog is to a hydrant.
