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.
George and Nina seem like the perfect couple. They share a cozy Brooklyn apartment, a taste for tuna casserole dinners, and a devotion to ballroom dancing. They love each other. There's only one hitch: George is gay. And when Nina announces she's pregnant, things get especially complicated. Vince - Nina's overbearing boyfriend and the baby's father-wants marriage. Nina wants independence. George will do anything for a little unqualified affection, but is he ready to become an unwed surrogate dad? Written by

I thought that this film was terrific. I read the book years ago, and
actually thought that the movie was better. First of all, it makes more
sense to look at the storyline from Nina's perspective, since she has much
more at stake than George does. Secondly, the character played by Nigel
Hawthorne was beautifully written and played, and he didn't even exist in
the book. I also disagree with the assertion that George was "boring" in
this movie. I thought that Paul Rudd gave a wonderful and moving
performance, particularly at the Science Fair when he tells Nina how much
he would love to be a father. Don't believe the critics -- give it a
rental. It's a terrific film.
