"The Sweetest Thing"

post #1 of 46
Thread Starter 
This is the worst movie of all time. Threaten to commit suicide if someone attempts to drag you in, it would be worth it.

I've seen Battlefield: Earth, this is worse.

Cameron Diaz is absolutely horrible.

It's a pathetic attempt to be crude with 3 or 4 someone-falling-down reflex laughs in the godforsaken hour-and-a-half.

If I hadn't been with two other people I would've walked out 15 minutes into it.

It couldn't have taken more than 3-4 weeks to make the movie and 1-2 days to write it. The character development was non-existent, it's like they just wrote a new character each time and had one of the three chicks play it and they kept the name.

I have no idea why it was called "The Sweetest Thing"... not even that fits. "****ing Shitball Movie" wouldn't pull people in, I guess.

I'm glad me and my friend convinced my other friend not to see it Friday night. I figured it'd be pretty bad just by seeing the commercials.

My girlfriend and her mother dragged me to the mall. There was a theater in there and the final vote was between Scorpion King and The Sweetest Thing, I was outvoted 2:1.

Am I stupid or was the part about the guy saying it was his brother's wedding never explained?

That cast with a decent script could have killed, why they went for this one is beyond me.

Kind of cool to see Jason Bateman-I didn't recognize him until the credits.

But the chicks are hot. I dig that Selma Blair, too bad her character sucked.

I bet EmAn's mom is hot. What's the score, EmAn?

I was walking to my pop's office in Chinatown one day last summer and I walked right into a take for the film. Heh. It was a seen where the Diaz, Applegate and Blair play monkey in the middle or something and I seem to remember Lion Dance masked men running away. It was odd...I knew right then that the movie would suck.

Is such a scene in the movie?

But that isn't the point.

The point is, is EmAn's mom hot?

Come clean, man, she's gotta be hot. In her early/mid-30s, no?

That's the sexual prime for women, you know.

Got any pictures?

The sexiest women in the world are the ones well into their 30's and 40's.

You can keep the 22-year-old bubbleheads, trendmonkeys and "Real World" rejects.

A women who's lived a bit, knows what's real and important in life and has a couple of lines around her mouth...mmm.



I loves me some pedicured, tousled-hair soccer moms...

Well, I don't know if it's any indicator, but EmAn's a lot better looking than I had imagined.

Admittedly, I'd always pictured him as a small Gollum-like creature that spent all its time in a darkened room hunched over its Mac. "My preciousss..."

I think I might have some pictures of me and her from her birthday party a few weeks ago. I'll check and if I do I'll post them tomorrow or whenever I get a chance.

Eman doesn't get it.

We're supposed to say your mom is hot and you're supposed to be made uncomfortable by it. "Shut up, guys." and such.

You're taking the fun out of it.

Hey no personal attacks on other members. Ban yourself Belle

Talking about women in their late 30s/early 40s: Yesterday I was a juror in a criminal case (A bit different here. One judge and two jurors. Majority decides guilt and punishment) and the judge was HOT. The case lasted eight straight hours and was about four cases of burglary of $500.000. After notising that she didnĀ“t have a wedding ring all I did in the last four hours was to check her out. I tried to do it very descreet but its very difficult when all activity in the room is done for your attention. Twelve pairs of eyes staring at you, the other juror and the judge. I think some of the audience discovered where my attention was directed. The girlfriend and the father of the defendant had very large smiles on their faces when they looked at me. Not a common thing among relatives of someone you can sentence up to four years of jail.

Cases like this is pure routine and I think we managed to give the right punishment (actually exactly the one I had desided was the right one before discussing it with the others) but if I was to rule it myself I might have had a problem. "You are hereby found guilty in stealing...ehhh an amount ....was it $500.000, 750.000 or 50.000? Well at least three month of jail and 240 hours of community service for what the hell it was you have stolen"
