Very, very good, Mark. And very true. I love what you're doing. I just, I think if we could try it one more time, and this time... I don't know... maybe try one without your shirt.

Early in the opening credits we see the words "a hamon cheimafflo film". The letters of the two middle words then rearrange themselves, one "o" slipping off the side of the screen, to form the name of director Michael Hoffman. See more »
It's funny. It's not Arthur Miller or T.S. Elliot, but man this is funny. Kline and Fields are great. (Her toss-off line "God, you are so disGUSting" as she climbs in his window - great! Kline's running into the door after scoping out Teri Hatcher - great too!) Robert Downey Jr. and Kathy Moriarty work together flawlessly - until he finds out who she really is... a soap opera turn if there every was one!
The scene near the end in the chinese dining area had my kids and I rolling on the floor - that scene alone is worth the rental price.
Doesn't solve any world problems or show the seemy underbelly of daytime T.V. (I hope). Just a lot of fun.
