Storyline

TV presenter Will Chaney is as cute as they get and a dear devoted daddy to his pre-teen son Benjamin 'Ben'. Alas the somewhat shy, confused boy is the only good thing that came out of Will's marriage. Under divorce custody rules Will picks up Ben at Denver airport at the start - and near tears drops him off again at the end of every major school holiday. There Will meets divorcée Jane, who similarly picks up and drops off her daughter. Both good, involuntarily part-time parents hold back dating to spare their kids another traumatic break-up. Luckily their best friends, Will's cameraman Charlie and Jane's sister Georgia, encourage them to go out together. Once Ben gets used to the situation, at last saying 'dad' instead of Will, he gives his crucial blessing, even picks Jane over the only other date dad presented to him, so exit Maddie. Finally Will considers a bold move, which however is probably detrimental to his first shot at promotion from weatherman to news-desk presenter, as ... Written by KGF Vissers

Old story in a new dress.
10 May 2004 | by (Bratislava, Slovakia) – See all my reviews

I´m glad that someone has made a movie about how hard it is to risk your heart for a second time. Or third. This movie is exactly what it promises to be - lovely, amusing and it gives you this good feeling around your heart when it ends. The plot might be not very inventive, but there are millions of ways to tell the story and they have not been all used yet. The cast is perfectly selected although Scott Wolf does not look like a father of an eight year old not even when he is wearing a suit. So, the sparks are on all the right places, supporting cast is lovably supporting and although you could probably predict the whole movie you would not want to switch the channel. It is just the right sort of entertainment for a Sunday evening.
