It's a cute, light hearted comedy. Fun once, but it's not a movie I would choose to own. I haven't seen the DVD.

Rented it last night. A mildly diverting fluff piece. Not nearly as funny or insightful as Clueless (which it is clearly inspired by). The transfer is very nice with a bight color palate. Sound is run-of-the-mill comedy stuff. Watched the deleted scenes -- short and nothing remotely special. An OK rental, but not worth a purchase if you aren't a big fan already.

Surely this is a half film, it misses a lot, yet it has a funny streak. I unfortunatly bought this due to some pressure from my lovely fiance (she now apologizes), and I liked Freeway with Reese Witherspoon. However, no where close to Freeway, or what I thought. I graded it in my Database with a 5 out of 10 possible. Hope you do not see it.

We rented this last night.

We thought it was entertaining and not sorry we rented it. However, I wouldn't recommend a purchase or a repeated viewing. It contained some deleted scenes and a small featurette "The Hair That Ate Hollywood" (we only watched the deleted scenes as the featurette had no appeal to us).

All in all a good diversion for a couple hours...

I rented it a while back also and thought it was very good. The picture quality was great and the movie was shot very colorfully, so its nice to watch. The movie itself I thought was very funny and definitely worth seeing. Its not on my to-buy list, but I could see myself watching it a couple times more in the future.

I picked up this movie at the last Blockbuster PVD sale. For the price it was worth it. Glad I didn't dish out $19 for it but an enjoyable movie to watch

I enjoyed it. It was a nice little comedy. The DVD is rather impressive too.

Worth a purchase IMO. Witherspoon has been very good in most of her movies and this performance is quite good. She plays the role with great comic timing.

I also enjoyed Election, which was a great performance by Witherspoon.

Not a realistic movie, but good "date" movie. Girls seem to like this movie a lot, at least the ones I know liked it.

Stifler's mom's in it too, but she gained some weight since American Pie.
