  • They Both Die at the End – General Review
    Summer break is the perfect opportunity to get back into reading. Adam Silvera’s (2017) novel, They Both Die at the End, can serve as a stepping stone into the realm of reading. The pace is fast, action-packed, and develops loveable characters. Also, Silvera switches point of view each chapter where narration mainly focuses on the protagonists, […]
  • My Favorite Book – Freshwater
    If there’s one book that I believe everyone should read once in their life, it’s my favorite book – Freshwater by Akwaeke Emezi. From my course, Queer Literature under Dr. Bill Albertini, I discovered Emezi’s Freshwater (2018). Once more, my course, Creative Writing Thesis Workshop under Professor Amorak Huey, was instructed to present our favorite […]

?The Sweetest Thing? is stupid, mindless, raunchy ? and absolutely hilarious. This romantic comedy lacks a solid plot and the concept is completely unbelievable. What it lacks in substance, however, it makes up for in hilarity.

Cameron Diaz is at her best: dancing without rhythm, making goofy faces and getting herself into trouble. She plays Christina Walters, a ?love ?em and leave ?em? kind of girl who realizes too late that she wants to change the way she is. After meeting Peter, played by Thomas Jane, at a club and unsuccessfully trying to hook him up with her hopeless friend Jane, played by Selma Blair, the two seem to hit it off. After missing her chance to meet up with him later, her best friend Courtney, played by Christina Applegate, talks her into chasing after him and going to his brother?s wedding.

What follows is a side-splitting look at how crazy girls can get when we take road trips. The road trip, by far the best part of the movie, takes us into the outrageous antics of two very twisted girls. After a hysterical mishap in a men?s public restroom, the girls must find a change of clothes. However, the closest shop looks like it?s been slapped by the ?80s. Diaz and Applegate then take us through a ?movie montage? as they change into outrageous outfits.

Once they finally reach the wedding, a twist in the plot causes problems for the hopeful Diaz. Things don?t turn out quite the way she had planned, and the girls return home disappointed. However, once back to her club-hopping, heartbreaking ways, her attempts pay off.

Applegate plays the sidekick to Diaz so well, the two are comedy personified. Their timing is on, and the ridiculousness of their comedic performance will leave you in stitches. Selma Blair is just as funny as she gets herself into several bizarre predicaments.This is a great ?girls night out? movie that even the boys will enjoy.

Grade: Plot- D Hilarity- A
