Jane (Selma Blair) is quite depresesed following a recent relationship failure that her roommates Christina (Cameron Diaz) and Courtney (Christina Applegate) decide to take her dancing with the mission for her to find ‘Mr. Right now’ instead of ‘Mr. Right’. Christina then briefly meets Peter and ends up quite liking him. When she finds herself thinking of him incessantly , and at Courtney’s insisitence, she starts a road trip to a family wedding that Peter will be attending.


This is a delightful and awesomely funny adult comedy and is markedly enjoyable and entertaining. While filled with crude and explicit sexual humour, and thus not for everyone, it is shockfull of non stop laughter and dizzying ‘let’s have fun’ energy.

Nancy Pimental wrote a script that is quite representative of the 25-35 single urbanite females of the early 21st century in a raucously funny way. It’s ‘Sex and the City’ meeting ‘There’s Something about Mary’ in every fashion.

Cameron Diaz shines again as the gorgeous laid back girl next door many fell in love with in ‘Mary’. She’s the lead here and manages to pull through well. The real surprises here however are Salma Blair (A great choice for the explicit scenes, her having some problems with her guy’s piercings is the funniest thing I’ve seen in a while) and Christina Applegate as the antidote of her bimbo teen role in ‘Married With Children’. She is witty, smart, sexy, and funny and takes the movie a notch or two.

Overall the chemistry between these three stars is buoyed by the script and the end result is two very enjoyable and at times hilarious hours. This is highly recommended fun for anyone that is not offended by crude and sexually explicit language.
