Mel is a musician in Manhattan, with plenty of one-night stands but no steady companion, except for his goldfish. He decides to move in with his current girlfriend, so he sublets his flat to Ginger, an English biologist new in town. The day he moves out, he flips for the bride at a wedding where he's playing, breaks up with his girlfriend, and moves back into his flat, negotiating with Ginger to her temporary flatmate. Meanwhile, he pursues Diana, the bride, working as the elevator operator in her building while he and Ginger develop a friendship as she does research on his fish. One of her lab frogs and his fish develop an attraction: is this a harbinger of opposites attracting? Written by
In the scene where Ginger asks Melvin for his fish, he takes a coke out of his back pocket and opens it. There is no sound of it opening. Also in several different jump cuts of this scene the coke can changes back and forth. See more »
I really liked the movie! Though its my wife who dragged me to see it -well, it's a romantic comedy- , I had a great time. The movie is clearly an excellent romantic comedy but I felt it was also much more and spoke a lot to guys issues, such as moving together, who's the right girl and how to make a move towards her. Its very funny and packed with some great lines. I loved the jazzy music, which works with the rhythm of the movie quite well. Gina Gershon is very sexy, but in a new way that suits her well. I had never seen C. Cashman on screen but her dance number is something I'll remember. I also liked to see the guy from American pie and an ex bond girl... Go see it.
