Writer: Christopher Crowe
Producers: Brian Grazer, Ric Kidney
The soundtrack is also very effective in this setting, and of course, the slutty performance by Alyssa Milano is something we could all indulge in (look for the nice bikini and butt shots...if you're into that kind of thing, that is :). I didn't much care for the father/David relationship which seemed to be a little too contrived, but for the most part, I was really into this movie. Then again, daddy dearest did have one of the coolest lines in the movie when his wife is asking him what the "big deal" was about his daughter dating David. His reply: "The big deal is that the guy gives me the creeps, and the girl is my daughter."
All in all, the movie kicked some fun ass, mindless as it was, and effectively demonstrated every parent's worst nightmare. Mind you, I still can't tell if Reese Witherspoon is good looking or a douchebag, but hey, life goes on. And on a personal note, we finally decided to add some Taco meat onto our nacho fiesta of usual, and let me tell you all...it was a flaming success !! Another firm recommendation by JoBlo!
