Storyline

How do siblings deal with each other in their targets? This is the question tackled in this movie. Blue-collared Mickey drives a New York taxicab since the breakup with his promiscuous ex-fiancée Heather two years ago. His younger, white-collared brother, Francis, cannot let Mickey forget the tragedy of the "hairy ass": (Mickey's image of his apartment floor of the guy having sex with Heather after walking in on them). Finding relief in driving his cab, Mickey meets an art student named Hope whom he marries after knowing her for only 24 hours. Mickey also meets his old lover Heather, and learns more about life itself as taxi fares in the course of a summer. Francis, a young Wall Street corporate raider, unhappy in his marriage to Renee and led by his infidelity, continues his shots at Mickey throughout the film, only to find himself a plot device that lends humor and lessons about marriage and brotherhood when he meets and starts an dangerous affair with Heather, despite Mickey's ...

Edward Burns is to be admired for directing this (in places) wonderful "slice of life", examining the intricacies of relationships, the ideas of romantic love and sibling rivalry. The family unit (Mike McGlone, Edward Burns, John Mahoney) is excellently conveyed. The father and younger brother (an impressive performance from both the actors) display (initially) a rampant misogynist, a far cry from the character Edward Burns plays.

The cast is rounded off with a very good Jennifer Aniston as the cheated-against wife, who has her "needs", not fulfilled sexually, a beautiful and contained Maxine Bahns and a vulnerable and (at the same time) brittle and almost defiant Cameron Diaz.

It's a good movie, with good acting, and good lines.As in all Romantic Comedies, the story is quite predictable. However, it's an engaging film, and involves the viewer.
