Some may describe this as another "chick flick", but I think its on a different level. By the time I finnish writing this review, this movie stands a good chance of overtaking "Pretty Woman" as my all time favourite. 'Why?' you may ask. I'll tell you why. This movie is EVERYTHING that Pretty Woman is, with humour to boot!
Ok, so as some of the reviewers have said, it may be deemed as a little crude, but theres SO MUCH truth in it, its unbelievable. Where as its normally the blokes who are shown as the crude, self-centred ones, this movie flips the script.
Cameron, Christina & Selma play 3 out-of luck girls; out of luck in the love department. Its not that the first 2 dont get LAID, just they cant seem to find 'Mr. Right'. Selma (Jane) seems to have found him, and is usually 'busy' with her man; even at work. One of the funny parts is when she's in the dry cleaners and EVERYONE who comes in, seems to know her. Even her old school teacher comes in with a class on a visit (dont know bout anyone ELSE but I never visited a laundry as a school outing; was usually a museum!)
The "Old guy", lets call him 'Gradpa', who pops up in a few places throughout the movie, helps us to understand that, just because you marry someone & have kids with them, you dont have to devote your ENTIRE life to them, especially after they've gone. People ALWAYS say to 'Grandpa', "I bet you miss Grandma" and the look on his face, and the way that he mumbles, just tells you how quite P*55ED off with it all he is.
The clever part of the film is when Cameron & Christina are in "Veras'" shop trying to find something to wear for the wedding they're about to 'crash'.

This is a dreadful movie, with a poor script, crass acting and direction, and jokes only worth cringing at. There ARE the sorts of gross laughs that are a common feature of teen and college movies, but these are adults are in their late 20's/early 30's; it just isn't the same. The film seems to have been designed as a kind of tribute to the ladette culture and/or as a vehicle for Cameron Diaz, whose slim body is flaunted throughout the movie...a kind of Sex in the City rip-off, without the good taste of that series/movie. The studio obviously had a new generation of female singles in mind when they created this, who perhaps aren't interested in anything beyond sex, clubbing and...well, that's it, actually.

On the recommendation of two boys in the office I ordered this. What a total and utter waste of time and money (and by that I mean everyone's, not just mine...)
Thin crappy plot. Thin crappy acting. Vulgar, puerile dialogue. How in the name of God did Cameron ever agree to star in this career-busting nonsense...give this rubbish a very wide berth...

I saw this when it first came out and liked it, but on second viewing, I'm not really that impressed.

This sort of story is usually focused on the guys and its a nice twist to have the main characters as ladies behaving badly. The highlights are the "You're too big etc" song number, the road trip that Cameron and Christina go on and Peter's trip to the driving range.

I thought the male lead was a weak choice and the script does fizzle out as the story nears its conclusion. Add to that that the standard stereo type that everyone is just looking for real love turns out to be the goal, and everything becomes pretty familiar.

Worth a look, but not one of the great "battle of the sexes" comedies.

I love this film, it's a film for the night when the girls come round and the wine is opended, it's funny because there is an element of truth to it.Yes this can be crude at times but I think the reason it gets such bad reviews is that peolpe don't want to accept that this is how young sexually confident independent women talk or maybe even behave. Either way this is a must for every girlie get together!

You are probably going to vote this review home and away, but this movie is the worst movie I've ever seen, and I've seen my share of movies. This movie contains some of the most beautiful people Hollywood has to offer, and one talented actor, I say again: One talented name: Cameron Diaz. So I ask Cameron, and I hope for God's sake she's reading this. Why Cameron? Why would you want to affiliate yourself with this garbage?
The movie's soul, and primary intention is to tell us how we are supposed to act towards sex. Yes, this movie likes to think of itself as the bible to women, on how they should treat their partner. This is supposed to be a comedy, but I did not laugh once. If you think my humour is bad, well, let me tell you this: I want to have some "taste" in what I am watching. It should be some class. Let's take a close neighbor of this movie's genre: American Pie 2. It has the same content as this movie, but it has style.
Why? Because it isn't so explicitly stupid! The Sweetest Thing is terrible!!!
If you want to have something to do with the title The sweetest thing, listen to the U2 song of the same name, which thank God isn't anywhere near the soundtrack of this waste of talent, and thank God again that Beauty is only so skin-deep.
