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 ...

Quotes

Mr. Fitzpatrick: She's gonna be devastated. She's been up at that goddamn church every morning praying for your brother. And then yesterday she tells me I spend too much time on the boat. I don't even want to get into that discussion. And now you're gonna get divorced? Christ. She'll be up with Father John twenty-four hours a day. Thanks a lot, buddy. I'm probably going to have to start making my own breakfast again.
Francis: I'm sorry if my divorce interferes with your breakfast plans, Dad.

Not an ambitious movie, but wryly comic and lightly insightful
16 December 2001 | by (Alexandria, Virginia) – See all my reviews

Ed Burns specializes in quiet New York comedy, which makes full use of NYC quirks, ethnicities, and conflicts. He is also an incurable romantic, who tends to have himself pursuing romance in a city full of cynics -- sometimes even including himself, which is somewhat self-contradictory, but humorous. In this case, he is waffling on his true love, while his brother, married to Jennifer Aniston, is cheating on her with Cameron Diaz -- definitely an interesting question of taste -- and Diaz is a former girlfriend of Burns. The complications are not profound, but are gently comic, as are the required just deserts.
