Straight-laced Rose breaks off relations with her party girl sister, Maggie, over an indiscretion involving Rose's boyfriend. The chilly atmosphere is broken with the arrival of Ella, the grandmother neither sister knew existed.
About a guy whose life didn't quite turn out how he wanted it to and wishes he could go back to high school and change it. He wakes up one day and is seventeen again and gets the chance to rewrite his life.
Rosie (40), a divorced mother, produces the has-been TV comedy You Go Girl. Her boss no longer allows the show to tackle any vaguely controversial subjects, so it seems doomed. Then she meets at an audition Adam Perl (29), an attractive, spontaneously funny, single actor. She successfully casts him, which revives the show's ratings. She also dates him, but her pathological insecurity, focused on their age difference, compromises the relationship. That culminates when she suspects him of infidelity with the show's star, and the studio gives those two their own sitcom. Written by
"I Could Never Be Your Woman" is also a line from the song "Your Woman" by the musical group White Town and is also used in a scene in the movie. See more »
While calculating the age differences in an inner monologue, Rosie makes mention that her first writing job was for the sitcom Family Matters (1989) in 1986 when this show hadn't been developed yet. See more »
Pretty impressive, huh? People tend to think of me as that, uh, environmental nut. But whenever I get down to work they say, 'Mother Nature, you're such a destructive bitch'.

I had no idea what this movie was about, all I knew was that it was a romantic comedy. Paul Rudd is terrific; his chemistry with Michelle practically leaps off the screen. I found myself laughing out loud at various situations. It was a very sweet, upbeat movie that just left me feeling good. Not to mention that it revolves around a TV Show that has remarkable similarity to Clueless. And if you were a fan of that movie/show then you will love watching some of the original cast. There are definite moments that will take you back to that classic! I have resisted signing up for IMDb for a while, but this movie needs to be shared!
