Storyline

Samantha, a travel writer suffering from claustrophobia, agoraphobia, and a whole host of other phobias, isn't exactly lucky in her romantic fate. But when her pshycologist suffers a major mental breakdown, she secretly poses as the missing shrink in an effort to turn Michael, her new neighbor, towards her and away from his girlfriend. Through her chase, Samantha meets the happy-go-lucky magazine salesman, Henry. What follows is a series of events that lead to the one question Samantha has to face: Is she thinking with her heart... or with her mind? Written by Michelle Piekarus

Perfectly mediocre
6 June 2003 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

This is a pleasant enough diversion of a movie. Courteney Cox basically plays Monica, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. Her performance in the movie's introduction is forced, but after that is fine. The movie holds up especially well in those scenes without David Arquette. I've never been a fan of that 'Look how wacky I am' brand of humour, and it falls flat on its face here. The writing is unoriginal, but sometimes that's a nice thing in a movie; we know that everything will be fine in the end. There's the odd funny line, but a little too much farce (i.e. Cox repeatedly falling off a chair) or juvenile humor that adds little. Average, but adequately entertaining.
