  1. That cameraderie is bound to appeal to women looking for a howlingly trashy time.
  2. The trick is getting from a conclusion made five minutes into a movie to an ending 90 minutes away. It can be a scary prospect. In The Sweetest Thing it is mostly a hoot.
  3. A movie in which laughter and self-exploitation merge into jolly soft-porn ''empowerment.''
  4. 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.
  5. Christina Applegate, of Eighties white-trash pinup fame, is a comic foil par excellence, delivering a snazzy, self-assured performance that lands the biggest laughs in a movie made mostly of hollow chuckles. She, in fact, is the sweetest thing in this sour, sucky film.
  6. The film is far too appreciative of its own jokes to let the audience discover anything on its own.
  7. The dumbest thing this side of a lobotomy.

    Funny. Acid. Some hilarious scenes. A good movie to laugh with friends, and obviously when you have no restrictions. It was a little forced in some scenes however it has made history in reverse, since usually in the movies who apears is the guy 'chicken' who falls in and runs back and this time the girl is who made everything.

    Ok the movie can be horrible an terrible, but have some funny moments. The performances are very regular, the development of the story is bad but funny. The Sweetest Thing is bad and funny. Expand
