About the Movie
Paul Morse is a good guy. When his friends throw him a wild bachelor party, he just wants to keep his conscience clean - which is why he's shocked when he wakes up in bed with a beautiful girl named Becky and can't remember the night before. Worse than that, she also happens to be his fiance's cousin. Desperate to keep his fiancée, Karen, from finding out what may or may not be the truth, he tells her a teensy lie. Which turns into a bigger lie. From the bachelor party to the wedding, soon his lies are spiraling out of control and his entire life is a series of comical misunderstandings. It's amazing how much can change because of one little thing - A Guy Thing.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: 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.
Rotten: Stumbles along laboriously, its jokes following one after another in a sloppy, flat-footed walk.
Rotten: What a childish, empty effort, and what a dispiriting thing to watch, or think back on watching.
Rotten: It's one of those movies whose sole conviction is that no gag is so tired or gross or easily grasped the first time that it cannot be run into the ground.
I wasn't expecting much from this movie, just an evening's diversion, but found myself laughing out loud. The plot is pretty standard romantic comedy fare but there are a lot of funny scenes. I wouldn't put it at quite the level of "There's something about Mary" but it sort of follows the same path and was fun to watch.
I'm surprised not many people gave this 5 stars. It's gotta be one of funniest movies I have ever seen. The cast is great and it's a great comedy (the underwear bins scene is priceless!). I love A Guy Thing, it keeps me laughing the whole entire time!
I rented this movie with fairly low expectations -- I expected merely a couple of laughs. I was pleasantly surprised, therefore, when I found that I couldn't stop talking about the movie several weeks later. I would describe it as the male counterpoint to How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days. While not the greatest movie in the world, it is one that you will definitely enjoy.
