Storyline

Buddy (Affleck) has just signed an airline in Chicago as a big client, but is ironically delayed at the airport waiting for a flight to LA on that same airline. He meets fellow passenger Greg, who opts to be bumped, even though it means missing an activity with his older son. When the flight gets resumed, Buddy thinks he's doing a good deed by swapping tickets with Greg so he can get home to his son. Sadly, the flight crashes. Buddy conspires with his friend, the ticket agent that night, to take his name off the passenger list and put Greg's on. Once he's back in LA, his new client dictates that the company run a series of feel-good ads about the crash. Buddy feels very hypocritical, and completely loses it when the commercials win a Cleo. After going through re-hab, he decides he needs to check on Greg's widow. But he doesn't plan on falling in love with her. Written by Tony B

Quotes

Abby: You know, I had a baby in the car.
[Buddy looks around the front seat rather shocked]
Abby: Not this car. No I had this Datsun, remember those? And we were driving to the hospital, and I KNEW I was going to have this baby, and Greg would NOT pull over. So I got it in my head that I was not going to have the baby in the front seat - like it wasn't safe or something - and I started to crawl into the back, and I got this contraction, and POW! I broke his nose with my foot! And he couldn't drive I mean ...

Expected good acting, didn't expect the rest of the quality of this film
12 July 2001 | by (US) – See all my reviews

I never even heard of this movie when it was in the theaters, not that that's anything all that new - but if Affleck and Paltrow were going to appear in it, it was worth a look-see. The plot summary on my TV movie channel made it sound a bit like "Random Hearts" which was a good enough movie, but I wasn't all that interested in a copy-cat type of thing. But Paltrow and Affleck... Thankfully, this movie had a very different and very interesting plot. As I expected, Platrow and Affleck did a find job, in fact, my husband, who usually doesn't comment on such things, noted the fine acting. But beyond that this was one of those movies that even though you know a lot up front about what it's going to be about, the writers have managed to pleasantly surprise you with how they handled it (and with no loose ends).

Hope this gets better known as it hits the video stores and movie channels and a lot of other people get to enjoy it as much as I did.
