Movie Info

Even without money problems, many divorced single parents have a hard row to hoe. At the drop of a hat, a competent, responsible professional person can be reduced to a frazzled, bumbling parent, when his or her children become unexpected daytime wards. This is what happens to Jack Taylor (George Clooney) when his ex-wife suddenly decides to elope, leaving their daughter with him. Unhappily for him, his reporting job demands one-hundred-percent commitment as he attempts to link corruption with

Privilege and coincidence have always been central to screwball comedy, but the speed of crosstown travel here rivals Die Hard 3 for plausibility.

Remarkable chemistry between the impossibly glamorous pair of Pfeiffer and Clooney.

January 13, 2004 Full Review Source:

Excellent romantic comedy. Exciting story of adults trying to succeed in careers with the drawbacks of children.

July 14, 2003

Silky smooth romantic comedy, with Pfieffer and Clooney at their most charming.

Sunday Times (Australia)

Cute and relatively inoffensive.

A beautifull movie with tiny bit, romance, comdey and senti moments.

A very clichéd love story about two unlikable people who are miserable. This film belongs in the 1950's, even then it would fail because there was much better out there!

I love this moive about two very different single parents who meet one day when their kids miss their school trip. Great cast. Sweet movie. A bit like Serendipity.
