The Sweetest Thing is a 2002 American farcical comedy film directed by Roger Kumble and written by Nancy Pimental, who based the characters on herself and friend Kate Walsh.[1] It starred Cameron Diaz, Selma Blair, Christina Applegate, Thomas Jane, Frank Grillo, and Jason Bateman.



Christina Walters and Courtney Rockcliffe, all-around party girls, attempt to ease their roommate Jane Burns' relationship-induced depression by taking her on a girls' night out. During that evening Walters meets Peter Donahue and falls for him. However, having missed her chance that evening, Walters and Rockcliffe continue to chase him by initially crashing a wedding.


Box office and critical reception

The film flopped in the U.S. grossing $24,718,164 U.S. of the $43,000,000 production budget. The overseas box office gross was $43,978,606.[2] Critical reaction centered on the utter unbelievability of physically attractive females experiencing mating frustrations in a club environment.

They're not as sweet as they look!Tagline



  • Don't go looking for Mr. Right. Look for Mr. Right Now. And eventually, if he's worthy, then one day that "now" part is just going to drop away.. naturally. You know.


Christina: And what if Jane is the girl of your dreams, and you'll never know.
Peter: That is the sweetest thing. I never thought I'd meet the girl of my dreams by having somebody grab me in a bar and say, "Hey, you, man, I have good woman for you. She is very hot and sweet. She is there. Jane, you dance for the man!"

Christina: If I'm bah-jiggity about this guy Peter, it's only because you're telling me I am.
Courtney: Oh, my God.
Christina: What?
Courtney: You've named the puppy.

Gramps: Should have poked her in the whiskers when you had the chance.
Roger: What's that, Gramps?
Gramps: I met this hot young dish at the World's Fair back in 1940. Every moment with her was like a slice of heaven.
Peter: I bet you really miss Grandma, huh?
Gramps: Ah, fuck Grandma.

Christina: I'm such an idiot.
Courtney: No, you're not.
Christina: I meet a guy for two minutes and I'm chasing after him like he's something special.
Courtney: Well, maybe you want someone special for once, you know? Maybe you were thinkin' that you were tired of the game.
Christina: You tired of the game?
Courtney: Yep.

Peter: I'd be careful with those fat-free chips. They cause anal leakage.
Roger: You cause anal leakage.

Christina: I did come to your wedding because I wanted to see you again. Because the feeling is mutual, and you'd better be a really good kisser. [Christina and Peter kiss.] Wow. That was weak.
Peter: Weak?
Christina: It's okay. You can try again.
