Storyline

Melanie Parker, an architect and mother of Sammy, and Jack Taylor, a newspaper columnist and father of Maggie, are both divorced. They meet one morning when overwhelmed Jack is left unexpectedly with Maggie and forgets that Melanie was to take her to school. As a result, both children miss their school field trip and are stuck with the parents. The two adults project their negative stereotypes of ex-spouses on each other, but end up needing to rely on each other to watch the children as each must save his job. Humor is added by Sammy's propensity for lodging objects in his nose and Maggie's tendency to wander. Written by John H. Henderson <johnh@eng.auburn.edu>

Goofs

The plastic wrap on the fishbowl changes between shots. When Melanie first leaves her apartment to go to Maggie's there is no wrap on it. When she's on the street and arrives at school it is covered with wrap and a rubber band. Maggie removes the wrap at "breakfast" and it remains uncovered when Jack takes it to his office. See more »

Quotes

Jack Taylor: I'm working on a story right now.
Kristen: You're always working on a story.
Jack Taylor: Well, Yeah. It's what I do.
Kristen: It's the same old one about an every-other-weekend, good-time father, for whom responsibility is a dirty word.
Jack Taylor: Here's a hint, Kristen. During an attempted manipulation, like the one that's in progress, I would have gone with flattery.
Kristen: Why do I always have to be the grownup where you always get to be the little boy?
Jack Taylor: Because in the beginning of the relationship when we were choosing up sides, you chose...

One fine movie !!!
13 April 2000 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Okay, I LOVE romantic comedies so this is probably not too objective but... gee, I loved this movie. It follows an old formula that has worked so many times and that is still working: 2 people who can't stand each other at first happen to spend some time together and eventually find each other attractive. This requires 2 main things: 1.) Two great actors with wonderful chemistry 2.) An original and funny script We have seen this in so many movies like 6 Days 7 Nights with Anne Heche and Harrison Ford or You've Got Mail with Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan or recently in The Runaway Bride with Julia Roberts and Richard Gere. I loved all these movies for they simply worked to charme me. One Fine Day fits perfectly to this list. George Clooney ( who proves that he can be a very funny guy) and Michelle Pfeiffer ( who gives a great performance in this movie) have very good chemistry and the script is very funny and romantic with some really great one-liners. This movie entertained me very much and it wasn't boring as I saw it the second time. For it's charme and fun, I give this movie 9/10.
