The Sweetest Thing Reviews

The filmmakers have obviously studied There's Something About Mary, and learned nothing.
August 13, 2002
The overriding effect of watching these actresses debase themselves is the cinematic equivalent of a motorway car wreck.

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.
April 26, 2002
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.
April 16, 2002
Seems to have been assembled (at short notice, with blindfolds on) by people who have never seen any movies outside of Cameron Diaz vehicles.
April 16, 2002
Loses its sense of humor in a vat of failed jokes, twitchy acting, and general boorishness.
April 15, 2002
The Sweetest Thing has nothing insightful to say about relationships, and nothing funny to say about the singles scene.
April 12, 2002
Bound to appeal to women looking for a howlingly trashy time.
April 12, 2002
Clever packaging of boy fantasy and girl fantasy.
April 12, 2002
Essentially a collection of bits -- and they're all naughty.
April 12, 2002
Not so much a movie as an amiable collection of off-color vignettes. None of them soar, but some are well worth a giggle.
April 12, 2002
A bunch of intermittently amusing sketches that collectively don't add up to much of a picture.
April 12, 2002
At 87 minutes, The Sweetest Thing feels pumped up with air, with an extended end-credits sequence designed to stretch the movie to a respectable feature length.
April 12, 2002
The ads for The Sweetest Thing promise that if you loved There's Something About Mary and My Best Friend's Wedding, then you can't miss this latest Cameron Diaz vehicle. Well, miss it.
April 12, 2002
An awkward hybrid of genres that just doesn't work.
April 12, 2002
A cheerfully twisted, energetic chick flick that simply does not waste time taking itself seriously.
April 12, 2002
It's a shallow movie, to be sure, but it has this much in its favor: It's a shallow movie that wholeheartedly, even joyfully embraces the point of view of the three, um, babe-a-licious women at its center.
April 12, 2002
Lacks original humor.
April 12, 2002
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.
April 12, 2002
If Diaz wants to keep panty-dancing in movie after movie, who am I to complain?
