Trivia

In the Cmon scene Jason Biggs can be seen cracking a smile and laughing right before the scene ends See more »

Goofs

The tux Darren is wearing at the end of the movie is not the same one he was wearing at his near wedding to Judith. It seems unlikely he would go out and buy/rent another one. See more »

Quotes

Darren: Hi, I'm Darren.
[Judith looks confused and unimpressed]
Darren: Darren. My friend said you wanted to meet me.
Judith: He lied.
Darren: Haha, that's a good one.
Judith: No, seriously. I don't want to meet you.

Alternate Versions

In the theatrical version, during the kickboxing flashback, Judith's old boyfriend is killed by a pretty normal-looking kick to the head. In the R-rated version, there is a longer close-up scene of his neck being snapped clean around from the kick, so his dying from the attack makes considerably more sense. See more »

I can't decide
11 February 2002 | by samepunksamedaySee all my reviews

This is one of those movies where, I cant decide if I liked it or i I didnt. I guess I feel the same on both sides about it. It was mildly funny,some of the jokes were corny and you see in about every movie. But some were pretty funny. The first time. Not a good movie to buy. I gave it a 7.
