The Hollywood Reporter

A feel-good raunch-com whose dirty-talk plot comes from a convincingly female perspective instead of feeling like cut-and-paste Apatow.

In its way, the film is more concerned with the love between friends than the sex between strangers.

Overly simplistic girl-friendship movie

By pedsarq

For a good time go to this movie!

Sundance Favorite Huge Hit!

Refreshing and fun

A thoroughly enjoyable kinda-chic flic - I say "kinda" because of all the raunchy fun and pretty faces that most guys will enjoy enough to see the show with their chic. The cameos were fun and the...

A Must See!

Enjoy the trailer instead

It offered a few brief laughs but the audience was mostly silent for 90 minutes. Another example of expert editing to make an amusing trailer for a movie that falls short. It would've made a funny...

Wrong on so many funny levels

Fun and Funny Gal Buddy Movie.

By Alon Patterson
Film comedy's a tough gig, given the lack of audience feedback in real time. Still, some writers and onscreen talent have a knack for it and others don't. While this film isn't exactly a riotous...
