Sarah Michelle Gellar,
A drama based on an ancient Chinese proverb that breaks life down into four emotional cornerstones: happiness, pleasure, sorrow and love. A businessman bets his life on a horse race; a gangster sees the future; a pop star falls prey to a crime boss; a doctor must save the love of his life.
Sarah Michelle Gellar,
Brett, a young woman from the suburbs, is an associate editor at a small New York publishing house, hoping to be promoted when, on the same day, she meets a literary lion, Archie Knox, who's 50 and who shows an interest in her, and gets a new boss, a dolly-dolly Brit. Brett is soon dating Archie, then moves in with him. He's charming, attentive, and gives advice. He also has a history - ex-wives, a distant daughter, a couple of diseases, and a photo album of former girlfriends. It's no fairy tale: family issues (and more) intervene, and Brett has decisions to make. Meanwhile, she's working with a writer who fears peanut butter sticking to the roof of his mouth. Is Archie dinner, an hors d'oeuvre, or a peanut-butter sandwich? Written by
There was wide spread fan gossip that George Clooney was set to play Archie Knox before the film began production. See more »

I know I'm not dad, but if you ever need to talk to someone I could try to manufacture something that sounds lucid.
The only thing that I can't bear, that's killing me... Is the thought that he was worried about me when he died.
He wasn't worried.
How do you know?
I was here the morning that dad got the phone call from Mickey. Well, after he hung up the phone, I told him would gladly assassinate Archie, if that's what he wanted. You know a dieing wish vendetta type of thing.

a rich 50 year old man dating a 25 year old woman.....
how inventive...Not! This movie was so stereotypical. Alec Baldwin plays rich publishing editor, Archie Knox, whom has lots of exs, a daughter that won't talk to him and he's an alcoholic. Brett is an upcoming editor and so is awe struck with Archie. She meets him at a book signing of one of his authors. She realizes her boyfriend is too childish for her, so dumps him and takes up with Archie, whom's twice her age. The age difference is very creepy. And of course Archie has his problems, mainly with drinking and you know how that will end. A side plot involves Brett's father whom is sick. There really wasn't much too it.
FINAL VERDICT: Not worth seeing.
