Storyline

Ryan is a womanizing stockbroker whose unethical business practices cost him his job and his trader's license. Unable to find another job, he is forced to move in with his equally self-involved (and completely oblivious) girlfriend, Cindy, an insensitive advice columnist on the cusp of losing her own job due to her poor advice and slow work habits. Finding that the truth behind his moving in has nothing to do with romance, Cindy runs off with another man. Ryan decides to stay in the apartment and earn a living by doing Cindy's job. Ryan establishes himself with Cindy's editor, Page, as Cindy's go-fer, collecting Cindy's paychecks and mail and delivering "her" columns. Initially as hopelessly inept as Cindy in giving advice, he nearly gets the column canceled. However, he rapidly grows into the job and the combination of forced introspection, research and the growing knowledge that he is touching other people's lives transforms him. The column becomes an amazing success. Ryan finds his... Written by Anonymous

Angie is the only reason it even got a 1
17 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If I could have done 0, then I might have. But Angie is amazing just as she is. The rest of this is so obvious you know the story with in the first 4 minutes. Everything is so bad and stereo type.

Actually, I think it was Denise best performance.

So I have to do 10 lines of text so I guess I will write more on this film.

Uhh....

Predicable. Angie Harmon, good. Acting in a whole very very flat. Story wanted to be cute and smart, but falls way behind. The opening is so bad that it drags on just to show you how much the lead can fall. Then when the fall happens it is so obvious that you just can't wait for it happen. Just a waste of time.

Unless you want to see how not to do a Romantic Comedy and how not to director actors that are not bad actors on their own. So for that education may be worth watching.
