Overall, I thought this was a pretty funny movie. Not a classic, by any means, but worth watching if you’re into the kind of comedy that presents itself in this movie. There were a number of funny scenes/quotes, some not mentionable here. I did a Google search and was disappointed to find out that the phrase “shut the front door” did not originate in this movie, but since I first heard it there, I’ll give them credit for bringing it to my attention. (We’ve been using that phrase around the house ever since we heard it in the commercials.) The car wash scene was hilarious and was made even better by the soundtrack (“Still of the Night” by Whitesnake). Sure, Cameron Diaz’s role was over the top and her change of heart at the end was not believable, but it’s just entertainment–not rocket science.
