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

Did You Know?


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 »


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).

Jack: [as Boris, thinly disguising his interest in Sam's breasts] Oh, this was an enormous, large, very good pleasure for me, and I'm looking very forward to the next time that I eat you.

typical AND original
23 November 2000 | by (Evansville, Indiana) – See all my reviews

This is a really good movie. Tho it has a lot of the same exact scenes you will see in a million other movies from the same genre, it is unique in many ways. I can't think of any other movies where the guy loses the girl, because he pretends to be gay, and she finds out he's not, so that element of the plot works well, I think. The actors are really good, and you come to really like the characters. Eastwood is great, but the guy who plays Parker does a really great job as well, so I don't think she carries the movie herself. I'd give this movie an 8/10, but I might even bump it up to a 9 just for the few scenes we see Parker's gorgeous co-worker, Kim.
