I was given this as a gift by my brother for my 18th birthday. I wasn't overly excited to receive it when I read the front cover and saw that Cameron Diaz was in it. However, I chose to watch it anyway.

The film stars Cameron Diaz, Christina Applegate and Selma Blair. All three having starred in some very funny comedies before. The three girls are shown in this film as being party-goers who like to go out and have a good time. The most memorable part in the film has to be in the chinese restaurant when all three stand up and perform a very amusing song in front of all the other diners in the restaurant.

The film watches as Christina (played by Cameron) falls for a guy she meets in the nightclub. She then chases him to watch she believes to be his wedding day to stall the wedding.

The storyline throughout the film is diabolical. However, the film is not supposed to be taken seriously. The film is injected with some hilarious scenes and left me in stitches.

If you are looking to settle down and get engrossed in a good movie then this film is probably not for you. But if you are looking for some light entertainment then I would definitely recommend it.

I see you've posted this as a DVD review, but you've not mentioned the DVD features. Are there any extras? If so, what are they and are they any good? If you add to this, or if you change it to be posted as a "Film Only" review, which can be done by accessing "edit review" above the review and changing the drop down menu under the "Which format are you reviewing?" question at the bottom, please let me know and I'll re-rate.

Good review but could do with some more info to gain higher ratings. Take a look at other reviews to get an idea of the level of info that is needed to gain higher ratings. ~ Em. x
