Movie posters for this film featured two long text preambles that read: (1) "David Fowler is respectful, sincere, considerate, communicative, kind, appreciative, thoughtful, and loving with every woman he knows. It's made him very popular. Now he's searching for the one he'd like to spend his life with. And with so many women to choose from, the question is whether he'll find her, before he loses his mind" and (2) "David Loves Louise for her passion. Nancy for her vulnerability. Svetlana for her grace. Courtney for her patience. And Marianna for her understanding. He finds something to love in all women. And that's why all of them love him back. He wants to settle down. But he can't settle on one. And deciding which woman in the world he loves most, is driving him out of his mind".
