Richard Roeper Ebert & Roeper | November 27, 2001

We've seen so many crummy comedies that try to be There's Something About Mary or something like this. And the Farrelly brothers come to the rescue and show us how it's done.

Bob Graham San Francisco Chronicle | November 09, 2001

It gets away with fat jokes at the same time it seems to be on the side of the angels and inner beauty.

Stephanie Zacharek Salon.com | November 09, 2001

May be the best Farrellys movie yet, even though it doesn't live up to the pair's usual level of uproarious, crass comic genius.

Joe Baltake Sacramento Bee | November 09, 2001

As with Cameron Diaz in There's Something about Mary, Bobby and Peter Farrelly and their film are saved by an actress who's a very good sport.

Jan Stuart Newsday | November 09, 2001

Paltrow's intelligence has the effect of adding weight, as it were, to a thin visual joke.

Eric Harrison Houston Chronicle | November 09, 2001

Who among us doesn't need to be reminded now and then how dumb and hurtful it is to judge people based on how they look?

Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times | November 09, 2001

Often very funny, but it is also surprisingly moving at times.
