Storyline

Parker Concorde, a freelance writer by trade currently working for the Psychic Pals phone service to make ends meet, is out of a home after accidentally starting a fire to his New York City apartment. Barely able to stand sacking out at his noisy pal Jack's place, he finally finds new digs with Samantha, who only rooms with gay men. With currently no other place to live, Parker allows her mistake over his sexual orientation to pass uncorrected, which later leads her to believe she's helping him out by setting him up on dates with her gay friends. Truth is - he's falling hard for her, and somewhere between dealing with her philandering boyfriend and dating other men he needs to set the record straight. Written by statmanjeff

Trivia

FBI Agent McCurley is given the same name as actor Doyle McCurley who plays him. The lost boy at the airport is named Alex, which is also the same name as actor Alexander Sferrazza who plays him. See more »

Goofs

Sam always seems to have a paint roller on hand to paint over her canvases and obliterate her work. The paint is always fresh and ready to apply at a moment's notice, never dried out, which is surprising since her decisions to paint over her canvases are always spontaneous, never pre-planned (which ready-to-go paint rollers would imply).

Quotes

Parker Concorde: Penny for your thoughts.
Samantha: Two bucks and you're on.
Parker Concorde: Okay, but it better be good.

Not bad(yawn!)
11 November 2001 | by (Orange County, CA USA) – See all my reviews

"If You Only Knew" is about a straight man (Schaech) who pretends to be gay so he can get a deal on a NYC flat and move in with a beautiful woman (Eastwood) who likes to have a gay roomie for security reasons. The flick works the premise to death, lags some in the middle, is obvious and predictable, jerks from one concocted situation to the next, but does manage to deliver a modicum of entertainment. Catch it on broadcast and give it a try. C-
