A widower whose book about coping with loss turns him into a best-selling self-help guru, falls for the hotel florist where his seminar is given, only to learn that he hasn't yet truly confronted his wife's passing.
Mike works at his parents' motel in Kingman, population 27,000, on old Route 66. Sue sells art for a Baltimore firm to corporations for office walls. He takes one look at her from behind as she registers at the motel and determines to connect. He's sweet, but hapless, with no ambition other than spending time with her. She's enigmatic - rarely smiling, occasionally impulsive, committed to helping homeless people, feeling the clock tick after a breakup with a boyfriend who could have provided security. Is there any way he stands a chance with her? What can he offer? Written by

The movie was completely different from what I thought it would be. And I was in for a sweet surprise. I thought it would be a bad movie. I was wrong. Jennifer Aniston was pure genius. This girl can act. Bravo ! Keeping up with her very well were also Steve Zahn and Woody Harelson. Aniston was so much better than her last couple of movies, her character has life, depth, versatility. I think this is my favorite of her performances ever. And the movie is so simple but it has so much life in it ! No superheroes or not even heroes, just simple people with simple feelings. I'd take that every day. Overall heartwarming and feel good. I recommend wholeheartedly.
