Borrowing heavily from other, better films, director Ted Demme and screenwriter Scott Rosenberg give each of their male protagonists a case of commitment angst.

This startlingly uneventful compendium of thick-headed boy-talk and female tolerance squanders a fine cast on incredibly ordinary characters and situations.

Watching these guys struggle with an idea is like watching a dog trying to get to that unattainable itchy spot. Funny, but pathetic too.

The dialogue isn't the only problem with Beautiful Girls. The characters are bad, too.

There is absolutely nothing going on in Beautiful Girls that you haven't seen... [in] any other artistic endeavor in which untethered young men and women, bound by geography and fortified by beer, shamble their way toward overdue maturity.

With better editing (Jeffrey Wolf) and directing (Ted Demme) the movie could have survived the script, but alas it was not to be.

Wise and clever, a refreshingly different take on gender relations.

Natalie Portman steals all the scenes with Timothy Hutton and lights up the movie...

Rosie O'Donnell's best 10 minutes of her career.

Does "Beautiful Girls" philosophically aspire to much more than mirroring a Counting Crows lyric from "Mr. Jones?" Maybe not. But there's a barroom eloquence, bottle-bottomed anxiety and stumblebum sadness to it that lingers in its bones.
