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 ...

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.

Some of the greatest dialogue ever written
23 April 1999 | by (Georgia) – See all my reviews

This movie doesn't depend on special effects, or high profile stars (no offense)to grab you and bring you inside the story. It actually has a plot! Something which is sadly missing in some of the big, flashy, "premise" movies today. The dialogue is witty and down to earth. It has a smatterring of the great tongue in cheek comments you wish you could use as a retort in real life. Burns constructs some great cut-aways from one conversation to another. This is a great movie that gets better every time you watch it. I would recommend this to anyone who doesn't require a car crash, gun fire, or an explosion every few minutes to hold their attention. Some of the subject matter limits the audience to adults, but send the kids to grandma's house and enjoy this one.
