Trivia

Schwimmer received an executive producer credit on this picture as he contributed many notes for the screenplay overall--the idea to make his character a sportscaster, the location of Chicago and such. See more »

Goofs

In the opening scene, it sounds like the preacher is pronouncing them "Husbands and Wife." To be fair, he may be saying "Husbance", but it is definitely not "Husband." See more »

totally dislikeable
29 December 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

every character in this film is totally dislikeable, I very rarely agree with Leonard Maltin but this movie is definitely awful. The David Schwimmer character is more likeable than the Jason Lee character but not very much, which doesnt work because Lee is supposedly the "hero" of the story. He's whining, pathetic and annoying. In reality, neither deserves to get the girl.
