Goofs

When Taylor gets Erin's acceptance of his proposal on tape, he also records a message for Ned. During later playbacks of that tape, new dialogue has been added. Specifically, he originally said that he is "one-third of the way to teaching you a lesson", but later playback has added, "and winning our bet." See more »

Quotes

Taylor Worth: I can't touch her because if I touch her, I'll jump her. And if I jump her, I'll lose her. Every man wants to jump her. So I've got to be different.

Don't all us batchelors wish we had his life!
28 September 2000 | by Shapster11See all my reviews

Don't ask me why but this movie is one of my favorites. It's always entertaining, in a comedy, when the main character talks to the audience as if you are right there as a silent cohort.

The idea is Taylor Worth is a batchelor with a great job, great car, great condo, and dates the best looking women in Philadelphia. His friends, especially the excellent role playing Mark Blum, are married and it is the contention of Blum that as great a life as Worth has he secretly wants "the pain and heartache of true love".

His friends have a plan...a bet...Worth is to date and get engaged to three women, of Blum's choice in 90 days. The catch here is that each has bet something they do not, under any circumstances want to lose.

The women are great, the acting is very good, the timing is superb and the story plays out nicely. I rated this film (FG) for "Feel Good"! It's not a classic but it'll go quickly, it'll make you laugh...just don't see it with any woman that is hungup on traditional ways men view women...Your gal may not stay long enough to see how things twist and turn.

A good one to rent when you want to just lay out on the couch with some popcorn, and the kids are over their friends houses. One other note for me...I was so taken by the car they gave Harmon to drive in the movie that I got one myself!
