Consensus: Wasting the talent of its leads, this predictable romantic comedy relies on cheap laughs.

Peter Travers
Rolling Stone

If you ever admired Julia Stiles, Selma Blair and Jason Lee -- and who didn't? -- don't watch them crush their careers in this laugh-free romantic comedy from the director of Snow Day.

James Berardinelli

It takes a truly awful motion picture to nullify the considerable appeal of Lee, Stiles, and Blair, but A Guy Thing has what it takes.

Cycles through the same old cliches, like squares accidentally being dosed with drugs, overzealous pharmacists blaring out sensitive medical information (nothing like a good ol' venereal disease joke), and climactically scotched weddings. [Blu-ray]

Village Voice

The three move through a faded deck of clichés ... with a convincing impression of having fun, helped along by a snazzy '60s-'70s soundtrack and bit-part fillips.

[Tries] desperately to lower the bar for scatological gags, rank sexual humor and cheap physical shots.

Lame, crude descendent of Meet the Parents.

Here's a rule of thumb: If the coincidences in your movie have longer odds than Carrot Top perfecting cold fusion, you might be straining the old believability factor.

A bale of romantic fluff that is a lot funnier than it has any right to be.

Would feel a lot emptier without the lively actors populating it.

Has its moments, in particular, the crab scene in the pharmacy, but not the best, honestly. I like both Julia and Selma, but it's not a career highlight… More
