Because I was once an eighth grade girl, I enjoy movies starring three chicks, especially if one is Cameron Diaz. (Charlie’s Angles, The Sweetest Thing, etc.) I also like Judd Apatow’s wife, Leslie Mann. I don’t know much about Kate Upton other than that she is supposedly plus size (?) and has big boobs.
The plot seemed generally quirky and somewhat empowering: three chicks find out the same guy is cheating on all of them and become friends instead of hating one another. The dialogue seemed funny too. I knew I would find my way to it someday, and that day was yesterday.
This is one of those movies that is actually just what you would expect from the trailer, which is all too rare in this post 9/11 world of ours. It gets at least three stars for perfectly meeting my expectations.
It also had these fun surprises:
-A powerful female lawyer
-A schadenfreude-inspring nosebleed
The dialogue was very sharp and sweet and like-able. The man was very hate-able, which is good cuz you’re not watching this movie to remember how charming cheating men are. I don’t remember the soundtrack, which is probably bad considering it should have the “Independent Woman” song of this era on it. What is that song? Something by Lourde or something?
The only thing I would change in this movie would be to replace Kate Upton with an actress who was not white and/or blonde. Does this guy really have such a strict type? Or is that Hollywood? Got ya.
This movie was refreshing in its way though, because it counters the idea that women are all man-obsessed rivals and shows that they can put sisterhood and just being good people in general first. (Not that I care about moral lessons in movies or anything dumb like that …)
I say if you have an X chromosome, you should watch this movie, preferably while in a sleeping bag wearing a BFF necklace.
