George tells Nina that his date for his high school prom (the one to whom he showed a "good time") was named Lucy Jane. In a display of her offbeat sense of humor, that is the name of screenwriter Wendy Wasserstein's daughter. See more »

Finally a truly great film from a star of TV's Friends. Jennifer Aniston is fantastic as a single woman who becomes pregnant and wants to raise the child with her roommate George, who is gay. Unfortunately for her, she ends up falling in love with him. This sets up what is a nonstandard ending to a romance movie, but the payoff is satisfying enough that you aren't in the least disappointed.
