This is the second film by actor/director Ed Burns, his first being The Brothers McMullen. The two Fitzpatrick brothers, Mickey (Ed Burns) and Francis (Mike McGlone), would appear to have little in common, as the older is a rather volatile cab driver, the younger is a very settled stockbroker. Just prior to the time of the film, Mickey, after a whirlwind romance, married Hope (Maxine Bahns), one of his passengers. Francis has been married to his lifelong sweetheart (Jennifer Aniston) for some

July 27, 2007:Edward Burns' Comic Book to (Also) Become a Movie
Guy Ritchie's "Gamekeeper" just became the first Virgin Comics book to earn a movie deal. And it...
No Friends? Inconceivable! Log in to see what your friends have to say.
Burns manages to take on a laundry list of touchy issues in a relatively frank, unflinching manner. His characters retain their dignity and integrity without false dramatic redemption. It's a true adult saga.
She's the One isn't slick, smooth or particularly good, and it offers only a perfunctory exploration of the human heart.
Edward Burns returns to the themes of family and love that he examined in The Brothers McMullen.
Sadly, the 28-year-old Irish auteur from New York lost his footing while stepping up the Hollywood food chain. Slickness set in.
Burns emphatically avoids sophomore slump with an inviting, ruefully funny film that lives up to his initial promise.
She's The One is carefully observed, well-made, enjoyable, thought-provoking and even funny.
A pleasant package then, easy on the eye, and gently charming but, like The Brothers McMullen, one which places Burns as a comfortable rather than cutting-edge moviemaker.
A disappointing second feature from Ed Burns, the director of The Brothers McMullen.
Could be the best film Burns has ever done
Burns' follow-up to 1995's witty The Brothers McMullen continues his wry examination of Irish machismo and its growing irrelevance in the '90s.
Like Brothers McMullen-lite and that one was pretty minimal to begin with.
Burns doesn't let a larger budget and recognizable actors dilute his style.
A brilliant - and much misunderstood - romantic comedy
Terrible messages about relationships. Ed Burns is a mysoginist. But some laughs, could be worse.
Average. A letdown compared to Burns debut film.
Sluggish and stiff run-of-the-mill romance comedy that clogs the heart more than it pumps anything remotely stimulating
Although the characters are mostly attractive, and some funny things happen between them, most of the movie is given over to scenes of one character complaining to a second character about a third who is not present.
Lively romantic comedy with its incisive depiction of sibling rivalry and sexual politics.
