Lifelong platonic friends Zack and Miri look to solve their respective cash-flow problems by making an adult film together. As the cameras roll, however, the duo begin to sense that they may have more feelings for each other than they previously thought.
A lifelong womanizer (Doug 'Dawg' Munford, played by 'Denis Leary') learns upon his grandmother's death that he stands to inherit her full fortune - that he was unaware she had accrued - pending his fulfillment of conditions set forth in her last will & testament, according to her strikingly beautiful, savvy attorney ('Anna Lockheart', played by Elizabeth Hurley), who would be charged with accompanying him on his journey in order to ensure he properly & honestly accomplishes the "mission", which is to locate and elicit forgiveness from 1 dozen of his former conquests, if he chooses to accept it. Bickering, adventure, road trip, and a few surprises ensue featuring lawyer & heir as they encounter an eclectic array of interesting characters from his past, eventually leading to an opportunity for him to reflect on his lifestyle. Did Grandma have an ulterior motive? Written by
You can counter a familier subject in this movie; A man has to do a mission to inherit a fortune from will. (Bachelor, Brewster's Millions etc.)
Douglas "Dawg" (Leary) is our man. He is selfish, rude and totally not caring about what a woman thinks after he gets his sex. He doesn't mostly remember them afterwards either. When his grandmother dies (which it seems doesn't affect Dawg either), in her will it is written that Douglas can inherit his grandmother's fortune which he wasn't aware of worth a million dollars. This is where Lawyer Anna Lockheart (Hurley) comes in. She's to witness that Dawg gets to hear "I forgive you" from his twelve ex-girlfriends.
I really didn't have a laughter while watching that movie nor I didn't feel any warmness as a romantic picture but I can't say I regretted watching it. Personally I think the ending could be better but well... It's as good as it gets. 7/10
