A washed up singer is given a couple days to compose a chart-topping hit for an aspiring teen sensation. Though he's never written a decent lyric in his life, he sparks with an offbeat younger woman with a flair for words.
As Hugh Grant is talking to the doctor, the name plate on the door reveals that the doctor's surname is Thatcher. This may be a nod to the fact that Grant is a British subject, since Margaret Thatcher is a late Prime Minister of England. See more »

Hey why do you guys really, really come here? Is it just to ruin my weekends and embarrass me in front of my friends at my home?

This movie wasn't even entertaining enough to justify seeing it in the summer in order to enjoy two hours of air conditioning. It was immature and lowbrow, and relied way too much on slapstick (Tom Arnold and Hugh Grant fighting in a toy store; Julianne Moore's wheelchair plowing into a wall; etc.)
Why can't there ever be a movie where someone who doesn't want children at the beginning STILL doesn't want them at the end? Why is "I don't want to be a parent" seen as a character flaw to be overcome, rather than a personal insight to be trusted?
Lame, lame, lame.
