"'The Ricker.' Ha-ha. I'd watch it again."
4 stars

Reese Witherspoon STILL makes me sick.

I figured I'd watch this movie for a few reasons that I don't quite remember right now (okay, aside from thinking Paul Rudd is cute), but all in all it was a pretty good ride. Because I laughed quite a bit.

The premise is Wyatt (Rudd) and Kimberly (Taylor) are sweeties. 'Cept, they're at different colleges. Hey, no problem, right? Well, Wyatt gets some bug in his ear about Kimberly dating another guy, so he ends up writing her some flaming bomb letter about what a horrid skank she is.

Then he finds out she's not cheating on him.

So. The 'hilarity' ensues as Wyatt runs around the country trying to get this damned letter back so Kimberly doesn't end up giving him the boot. Or.. Maybe she should, because along the way, he joins forces with some crazy assed woman named Ivy (Witherspoon) who is probably supposed to be endearing, but I wanted to smack her 9 times out of 10.

Anyway, I think he likes her.. He just doesn't know it yet.

Bottom line: Go for the cute faces, stay for the laughs.
