The Sweetest Thing
- 1 hr 28 min
The Sweetest Thing is an irreverent romantic comedy starring Cameron Diaz, Christina Applegate, and Selma Blair as Christina, Courtney, and Jane, as three 20-something women having fun in California. The film opens showing their varying degrees of cynicism and unrealistic expectations towards finding a suitable man; it’s revealed in the intro that Christina in particular has dated many men, yet never settled down. This resignation to short-term relationships is challenged when Christina is at a club and meets someone named Peter who’s unlike anyone she’s ever met before- he’s charming, handsome and mysterious. But before she can get to know him more intimately, he disappears; the only thing she knows about him is that he’s on his way to his brother’s wedding in her hometown. With only this piece of information, the three girlfriends set off on a whirlwind journey to reunite Christina and Peter. Along the way, they encounter some hilarious hijinks, including a dirty rest-stop, an erupting toilet, and crimes of fashion, before finally reaching the wedding.
