Comment
A student (Ben Stiller) invites the prettiest girl in the school (Cameron Diaz) to the prom, but after an unfortunate incident he does not see her again. Years later he hires a private detective (Matt Dillon) to track her down. However the private detective decides he fancies her and gives him spurious information. This is a politically incorrect, gross-out comedy that pokes fun at all sorts of groups of people, however underneath it is an old fashioned romantic comedy. The three leads give great performances, Cameron Diaz as the beautiful, naive girl, Ben Stiller as the accident prone incompetent and Matt Dillon as the scheming private detective. The film is very funny, not least several of the set piece scenes, especially the classic with Cameron Diaz and the "hair gel".
