Directed by Brett Ratner (Rush Hour
, Horrible Bosses
), the video was shot in Los Angeles, California, on the 30th and 31st of July 1999. In the clip, the reluctant singer's friends drag her to a movie theater to confront her cheating boyfriend (played by actor Jerry O'Connell). Mariah plays herself and her evil, man-stealing twin, Bianca Storm. Kung-Fu master Jackie Chan's team taught Mariah some fight moves for the bathroom brawl with her nemesis. The video was one of the most expensive ever made, costing over $2.5 million.
An alternate clip also featured Jay-Z rapping in a hot tub, mimicking a scene from the 1983 gangster movie Scarface
. Carey, made-up to look like Michelle Pfeiffer's long-suffering character from the film, stands disapprovingly in the background. The rap segment was supposed to be in the original video, but Jay-Z had already released a clip for his song "Girl's Best Friend" and his contract stipulated a two-week waiting period between video appearances. The scene is replaced by an animated segment in the first version.
