Fox and Chestnut, with their fine looks and fine wardrobes, are all dressed up for a party that most guests bailed on in the last days of the old millennium.

Few recent movies have conceived their central female character more contemptuously -- a fanatic for a lifestyle that appears to have come from the bestselling The Rules and someone who is obviously set up for a satiric fall.
September 10, 2001
A feature-length movie demands a story, and this one barely has the substance of an anecdote.
September 7, 2001
Doesn't anyone get sick of this same old routine?
September 7, 2001
The movie doesn't just hate women; it despises them.

A pleasant enough entry in that category, if you like your romantic comedies short on love and long on battle-of-the-sexes gamesmanship.

[Brown's] writing is often insightful, and he manages to split the viewpoint between men and women.

It does manage to be more fun than most romantic comedies these days.

September 7, 2001
The movie does have charm and moments of humor.
September 7, 2001
Offers for most of its length a wickedly funny romp that takes witty aim at traditional gender roles and stereotypes.
September 6, 2001
The actors all have great charisma and play their parts with verve. The film goes down painlessly, and even the biggest curmudgeon is guaranteed to get at least a couple of laughs out of it.
September 6, 2001
An endearing romantic comedy that pokes fun at the ridiculous things people do for love.
September 6, 2001
Both sexes are portrayed as superficial and silly.
September 6, 2001
Overly slick and packaged, complete with intrusive product placement for beer, soda and potato chips.
