The Sweetest Thing

A Film Review By Jason L. King

Starring: Cameron Diaz, Christina Applegate, Selma Blair
Directed By:Roger Kumble
Rated:Rated R for strong sexual content and language

Final Grade:

Christina Walters (Cameron Diaz) is a girl who is afraid of men. She has the looks, and the brains to have a great relationship, but her fear keeps her from obtaining the perfect guy. Then she meets the perfect guy. And after parting without planning to meet again, she realizes she wants to see him again. So she travels with her friends to find the man of her dreams before its too late

Don’t get me wrong everyone. I love Cameron Diaz. But there are some films the girl just shouldn’t do. I loved her in Something About Mary. But this attempt at the same type of film is going to attract girls thinking its a happy chick flick, but instead they will get a sick and perverted story that just honestly wasn’t worth the cash. many of the scenes seemed as though they were simply trying to hard. It was so predictable, and so atrociously bad in parts that I had a hard time sitting through it. Unfortunately, The Sweetest Thing tried to be the next Something About Mary and just plain missed the boat all together.

I almost feel bad for typing a review like this, but I honeslty can’t say much about this film. The acting was mediocre, the camera work as well, a weak storyline and even worse so many bad jokes an perverse ideas it just wasn’t even entertaining.
