Silly sex farce?  
Hum.  I read some other reviews, and everybody apparently hates the movie, although one of them does admit that Cameron Diaz is gorgeous with her clothes off.

I will grant that it's a stupid movie.  But I knew that from the trailers, and went anyhow.  There were no surprises, except perhaps the German Shepherd.

So I'm an old-fashioned lecher.  If the film had advertised itself as having ninety minutes of silly demented rom-com with a few minutes of Cameron Diaz nude and laughing, I would be first in line.

My wife and I saw it in a moderately crowded theater and thought it was a lot of fun, considering it was nothing more than a popcorn farce. I found it amusing to see younger people than I having such ignorance of tech, but then again, I have 30 years under my belt as a tech professional.

On the other hand, a friend of mine saw it solo in an empty theater and didn't think too much of it. But he lost his wife last Christmas, that could have had a definite influence.

It's not really on my list to acquire for future viewing, but we did enjoy it.

You should check out Chef if it still happens to be in your area (I saw it twice, my wife wasn't initially interested), also the Oprah movie 100 Feet (or something like that) looks good for foodies.
