Storyline

Jim, 35 and never married, has a drawer full of photos of ex-girlfriends. He'd like permanence, but can't find the right women. Is it him? He seeks advice from his father, his happily-married brother, his priest, and from Teresa, his close friend at the Manhattan celebrity TV show where he works. She's about to marry Tom and is full of opinions for Jim. Three things happen over a day or two: Jim rehearses breaking up with his current fling, he meets a dazzlingly beautiful neighbor, and Tom asks for help telling Teresa his true feelings. Can Jim transform himself from someone who's good at writing break-up lines into someone who can find and express his heart? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Not really my taste, but probably good
14 January 2009 | by (NC) – See all my reviews

Jim and Teresa work together for a TV entertainment magazine in New York City. Jim hasn't had a lot of luck with women, but Jim's friend Tom is engaged to Teresa. He is having doubts, though.

Tom wants Jim to help him break up with Teresa. If he does, Jim has to decide whether he should act on his feelings for Teresa. Meanwhile, the beautiful Mona, who is a photographer, moves into Jim's building and seems to like him.

This movie depended on my liking the guys, which I didn't. I did enjoy seeing Jim with his elderly father, who still lived in New Jersey and missed his wife.

I really didn't like Teresa. She seems to get depressed easily and has a hard time recovering from that. My guess is people will think Paula Devicq did a really good job. She really achieved making me despise her.

I liked Jim's other female co-worker but don't remember her name.

Mona, who has an exotic beauty that suggests a Mediterranean or possibly black heritage, posed nude for one of her photographs (I'm assuming she took it herself with a timer). Jim can't help but see the photo because it is one of the largest items she is carrying into her new apartment. She looks great but if you see this on broadcast TV as I did, some body parts are blurred. She has a really nice smile and a great personality. Sarita Choudbury did a very good job.

You have to stay until the end of the closing credits. The very end. There are some great bloopers, mostly involving Regis Philbin, who Jim interviews on the red carpet. Regis is great. And knowing he was a producer of some sort, I have to wonder how Joseph Lyle Taylor kept his job. But of course if you know Regis, you know he is only kidding. He's so convincing, though.

Guys can enjoy this version of a chick flick. Just not me.
