OUR WORD TO PARENTS: Here's a quick look at the content found in this R-rated comedy. Profanity is extreme with at least 19 "f" words being used, along with plenty of other profanities and colorful phrases and dialogue, some of which is sexually graphic in nature. Beyond such talk, several sexual encounters with movement and sounds are also present, and the two main actresses show a great deal of cleavage throughout the entire picture. Regarding that, some viewers make take offense at the way women are portrayed -- as sexpots and/or manipulative, mean spirited and self-serving bitches, and such characters as presented here obviously have extreme cases of bad attitudes, as do the two participants in the domestic war. That provides for some moments (replacing hair conditioner with hair remover, throwing and dangling a cat off a pier) that may prove to be imitative fodder for some kids. Beyond some violence that includes a character shooting another in the rear end with a gun, some drinking (including one character briefly seen drunk), and a few moments of scatological humor, however, the film's remaining categories don't have much, if anything, in the way of major objectionable content. Nonetheless, should you still be concerned about the film's appropriateness, we suggest that you take a closer look at the more detailed content listings.

Comedy: After meeting and falling for a beautiful woman who's determined to get married no matter what it takes, a TV sitcom writer soon finds her turning his life into a living hell when he refuses to propose.
Stewart (TV's "3rd Rock From the Sun"), the attractive and shapely actresses and the basic concept may entice some teens, but this one doesn't seem like a big draw for most kids.
For language and sexual content.
  • FRENCH STEWART plays a TV sitcom writer who quickly woos and beds Chelsea, but is reluctant to get married. After facing her wrath and various tactics to ruin his life, he begins to seek his own revenge on her, hoping to drive her from his home and life. Along the way he also uses strong profanity.
  • BRIDGETTE WILSON plays a spoiled woman whose obsession with getting married, coupled with Seth's reluctance to propose, causes her to set out to ruin his life, no matter what that may take. As such, she's very mean spirited, also uses strong profanity, shows exorbitant amounts of cleavage, and ends up shooting him in the butt (all of that beyond her sleeping with him on their first date).
  • BILL BELLAMY plays Seth's best friend who sides with him regarding Chelsea's actions.
  • TYRA BANKS plays Chelsea's best friend who sides with her and similarly shows lots of cleavage throughout the film.
