The Sweetest Thing is a 2002 romantic comedy film directed by Roger Kumble and written by Nancy Pimental, who based the characters on herself and friend Kate Walsh. It starred Cameron Diaz, Selma Blair, Christina Applegate, Thomas Jane, Frank Grillo, and Jason Bateman.
This plot begins with Christina Walters (Diaz) and Courtney Rockcliffe (Applegate), all-around party girls, attempting to ease their roommate Jane Burns' (Blair) relationship-induced depression by taking her on a girls' night out. During that evening Walters meets Peter Donahue (Jane) and falls for him. However, having missed her chance that evening, Walters and Rockcliffe spend the rest of the movie chasing him down.
The film uses mostly physical and crude gags as its source of humour. One memorable scene finds the main characters leading a musical number in a restaurant, the lyrics of which are about how women flatter men by praising the size of their genitals: "You're... too big to fit in here! My body is a movie and your penis is the star!". This musical number, known as "The Penis Song", (based on the song "I'm Too Sexy" by British group Right Said Fred) was removed from the U.S. theatrical release but remained in the versions shown theatrically in other countries, and was restored for the unrated version of the U.S. video release.
