Well Firegirl, I saw it and I echo what you said.
Theatre was crowded and I haven't laughed that hard in a theatre in a LONG time. I went and saw it with my girlfriend because I don't think my bf, and guys in general would enjoy it.
I loved it from start to finish and I'm glad they didn't throw in a cheesy third party person. That's where most chick flicks go wrong. A third party that has absolutely no rooting value just clutters up the plot in most cases.
And boy, is Kate her mother's daughter.
