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).

You have to see this movie. It's one of the best romantic comedies ever; the story is great, the performances are solid,and the dialogue is amongst the wittiest I have ever seen on screen.
