Okay, um. What do you mean by the leaning thing? You mean because he gave me flowers?
And then you *leaned*
And then I leaned.
Okay, how did I lean when I leaned?
It was a lot different from hugging. Hugging's very different. Hugging that involves arms and hands; and leaning is whole bodies moving in like this

. Leaning involves *wanting*... and *accepting*. *Leaning*...
Hey Luce! Is this guy bothering you?

In the video release, the scene when Jack offers to drive Lucy to Celeste's party is shortened. When shown in theaters, you see them get into the truck, drive less than a block, and then get back out. See more »
Warm and gentle comedy that shows Bullock to her best advantage, in her favorite role of shy closet beauty. Bullock obsesses about a man she sees briefly every day; when he is knocked unconscious she claims to be his fiancée. Then sparks begin to fly with the brother. Wonderful turns by Boyle and Warden as older family members. There's a great line by Boyle in this movie, something like you always imagine you'll have these long golden moments in life and then when you get there it lasts about a minute. I think Bullock was never better than in this movie, in later productions her shy modesty seems a little artificial. She and Pullman have just enough chemistry together to pull this through.
