Audience Reviews for The Sweetest Thing

  • Jan 12, 2015
    The raunchy sex comedy The Sweetest Thing is an atrociously awful piece of garbage. After connecting with a guy at a bachelor party Christina takes her friend on a road trip in order to crash the wedding in hopes of seeing him again. The comedy is cartoonishly stupid and really goes out of its way to be vulgar (like it's trying to prove a point). And, it's painful to watch Cameron Diaz and Christina Applegate debase themselves with this insipid filth. Yet at times the film flirts with the "it's so bad it's good" territory. Trashy and tasteless, The Sweetest Thing is anything but.

    Please, somebody could say to Cameron Diaz to stop make any movies, they're just horrible and that the only good comedy which she made a big role is There's Something About Mary and The Mask, thank you. The Sweetest Thing is a mix of a gross out and romcom that is really silly, so silly that makes me want to puke. It's one of this movies that is look like an awful music that you doesn't like, but stay in your mind and tortures you. Dispite the scene being in your mind, it have the able to make you embarrassed, from the first until the ridiculous ending credits.

    A fun and enjoyable rom-com that has a few tricks up it's sleeve to make it stand out above the average. Overall this film does deliver laughs but sometimes feels forced and unnatural, this hinders the enjoyment a bit. The story for this film is quite good and you connect with the characters involved bar Selma Blair who comes across a bit to open minded about her personality. This film is everything you expect with a few surprises that really make this much fun to watch but it is things like the forced jokes and the unnecessary songs that come in a couple of times that put you off. But if you like the genre or cast list then I am sure it will satisfy you with some factors that very slightly raise the bar.

    The idea forwarded here seems to be that cows can be just as stupid and lewd and backward as bulls (!!!). The result amazingly reaches the same conclusion: boring, and embarrassingly so. The cast, however brave, fails to lift the material. The groaning you will hear, that'd be you.
