Storyline

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 <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trivia

According to director Marc Klein he knew that Sarah Michelle Gellar was the star of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997) but hadn't watched the series and didn't really understand its huge popular following. When shooting the outdoor scenes in New York, he was shocked when hundreds of fans, journalists and photographers turned up to watch her act in his film. See more »

Goofs

While Brett is at the hospital visiting Archie who has just been admitted for Pancreatitis a nurse asks her to try and get his dinner order. However, a patient suffering the initial stages of Pancreatitis would be "fed" intravenously to avoid pancreatic stimulation and possible infection complications caused by bowel flora. See more »

Quotes

Nurse: Just a minute miss, sorry to bug you. But your father hasn't filled out his dinner menu yet. Would you mind?
Brett Eisenberg: He's not my father.
Nurse: Excuse me?
Brett Eisenberg: I said he's not my father. He's my boyfriend. I have sex with him!
Nurse: Either way he eats, right?
[Brett walks into the hospital room, pulls back the curtain, and we see Archie in bed]
Archie Knox: [using a high pitch, mimicking voice] He's my boyfriend. I have sex with him!

Very Casual Review
3 December 2011 | by (Egypt) – See all my reviews

A smart Rom Drama ( wont really count it as a Rom Com ) Movie. As a viewer I liked it, and loved the smart dialogue.

The movie basically talking about the young Sarah Michelle Gellar, with a dream of becoming a successful editor and publisher in New york. Get in love with a whale in that business, an old man, double her age. An attractive smart one.

The character of Archie Knox ( 50 years old lover ) is a very successful one. Well written character, a man with loads of previous relationships, a very successful man in the editing business, and therefore has his own way of talking, because of his culture, and education, and all the reading that made him be the best in his field.

The script was well written that shows the changes that occurs on Sarah Michelle Gellar after getting in a relation with this sober, smart, intellectual 50 years old successful man.

But it wasn't really a fair relationship, as was said it was a teacher student relationship.

Directing 6.5/10 Acting 7/10 Script 7/10

I would give the script less than that, but the dialogue was well written, although the script it self wasn't perfect because it didn't has the right dramatic ups and downs.

To some up ... watch the movie. Khalid_AlMasry@hotmail.com
