A widower whose book about coping with loss turns him into a best-selling self-help guru, falls for the hotel florist where his seminar is given, only to learn that he hasn't yet truly confronted his wife's passing.
A bounty hunter learns that his next target is his ex-wife, a reporter working on a murder cover-up. Soon after their reunion, the always-at-odds duo find themselves on a run-for-their-lives adventure.
Kate is working on a career at Mercer Advertising but is passed up for promotion because she's 'not stable enough', still being single and having no ties to the company. A story is made up about her being engaged to Nick, a guy whom she just met at a friend's wedding, and all seems to work out well for Kate. She even gets the attention of a colleague she had always wanted, but events soon take a dramatic turn, forcing her to 'present' her alleged fiance to her boss. Written by
Kevin Bacon, Kevin Dunn, and llleana Douglas also starred in Stir of Echoes (1999) together. See more »
After Nick saves the girl, he has a cast on his right arm and hand. During the dinner/breakup scene, before dinner you see his cast under his sleeve. When the toast is made at the dinner, you see Nick's right hand and the cast is gone. Then when he breaks up with Kate, the cast is seen again. See more »

This is yet another romantic comedy that wants to get by on charm rather than anything genuinely funny or romantic, but surprisingly, for the most part, it does. Part of that is due to the fact that everyone in the cast is likable, particularly Jennifer Anniston, who I'm not a big fan of, and Jay Mohr, who I like but aside from JERRY MAGUIRE haven't seen much of. Also, director Glenn Gordon Caron may be working with an outrageous concept, as most romantic comedies these days do, but he tries to keep it grounded, which is nice. I'd recommend it more except I hated the ending; not for who she ends up with, but how.
