Her younger sister Jeanine has no ambition, and her 8 year marriage to Harry puts her in constant competition with his family (all doctors), whom he is also competing for the affections of.

It's a chick flick!
8 March 2011 | by See all my reviews

There are times when I just need mental popcorn, so If you are looking for a silly movie, this is it. I love this movie - it's got some great lines and Sam Elliott. This amazing cast is a trivia lover's dream: Rebecca from Cheers, Princess Leia, Beckett from Quantum Leap, Al Bundy, Muffy from Square Pegs, the husband from Maude and more. Bill Pullman is a great supporting actor.

I want Sam Elliott's voice to make love to me. To this day, there are times I remember that line "It wasn't sex, it was GOOD!"

I give it 8 out of 10 stars for it's genre: chick flick romantic comedy.
