Quotes

Dr. Alex Tremor: [talking to self in mirror, shaving] You ended up skating in the park witha patient. It's class countertransferance. You allowed her to manipulate you into a vulnerable - nevermind unprofessional - situation where she controlled you. This is freshman psychology, Alex.
[cuts chin]
Dr. Alex Tremor: Oh, oh, good! Oh, good! Good! Dr. Tremor, don't blow a graet career on a cute piece of ass. You keep your dick in your pants, your id in check, and you remember we have a mission in this world.

17 November 2005 | by (Atlanta, GA (USA)) – See all my reviews

I know, I know, it's basically a boiler-plate piece of Hollywood fluff but I really loved this movie. I am a hopeless romantic and thought this movie captured the essence of falling in love and finding your split-apart...er...soul mate. :)

Jeff Daniels is wonderful as the shrink who can't help himself as his world unravels and falls apart thanks to the whacky Demi Moore character. Demi is perfect as the ditzy but charming butcher's wife. I really liked Mary Steenburgen in this story... she looked beautiful and sang like an angel. I liked all of the little characters too. The music at the end is haunting and perfect for the finale which wasn't surprising but who cares!!!
