We gave it a C+

Cameron Diaz teases, flirts, and dares to act the fool, all as a way of declaring her love for the most desirable person on screen: herself. The movie, a girls-rule! gross-out comedy pretending to be a romantic comedy, is full of gags that are more tasteless than funny. In this case, though, the grunge jokes become the backdrop for an exercise in Extreme Screwball. C+
