Chris M. said:
The movie has Cameron Diaz in a major role, and the only reason a second female character is given a name is to facilitate a joke about Seth Rogen forgetting her name after sex. The movie actually deserves some further discussion as (SPOILER) both Rogen and Chou try to romance Diaz but instead of being charmed by their man-child antics she is realistically aghast. That part plays against the Hollywood standard, but seems to be setting up the romance for the sequel.
