The Sweetest Thing
Cameron Diaz, Christina Applegate, and Selma Blair star in this crude, romantic comedy that proves women-oriented films can be just as raunchy as teen and male-oriented productions. Christina (Diaz) is a noted party girl who ‘just wants to have fun.’ Her best friend and roommate Courtney (Applegate), a lawyer, shares her since of fun and ‘sampling’ of the male population. But when Christina meets Peter (Thomas Jane) one night in a club, she begins to question whether he may be Mr. Right. But Peter appears to be getting married. The combination of stars may attract initial interest, but the fluffy lack of substance will quickly lower demand for THE SWEETEST THING.
Rather than romantic comedy, the film seems more of a sex farce as numerous scenes deal with sexual encounters, sex acts or skimpy attire. Along with crude sexual content, the dialogue is filled with vulgar obscenities, sexual slang and numerous profanities. THE SWEETEST THING is tasteless trash.
