Melanie Parker, an architect and mother of Sammy, and Jack Taylor, a newspaper columnist and father of Maggie, are both divorced. They meet one morning when overwhelmed Jack is left unexpectedly with Maggie and forgets that Melanie was to take her to school. As a result, both children miss their school field trip and are stuck with the parents. The two adults project their negative stereotypes of ex-spouses on each other, but end up needing to rely on each other to watch the children as each must save his job. Humor is added by Sammy's propensity for lodging objects in his nose and Maggie's tendency to wander.Written by

The school that was used for the scene where Jack and Melanie find their children's class had already left is a private college called the New York School of Interior Design or NYSID. The red front doors were added for the filming. See more »
Near the end of the movie, when the kids are watching "The Wizard of Oz," they want to fast forward past the Ms. Gulch taking Toto to the county sheriff part. When Melanie fast forwards "to the color part," the music heard is clearly NOT from the color part, but rather from when Toto returns to Dorothy from escaping Ms. Gulch's basket. There is also no way it took Melanie almost the entire movie to get ready to spend time with Jack, but we hear the end of the "Wizard of Oz," in order to end the movie. See more »
You are sensitive and frightened. I am gentle and brutal. Just think about it!

A great movie
I am speechless. This one is a classic movie, and I have no words to describe it. I wish they would make more movies like this one. Michelle Pfeiffer is brilliant as usual and George Clooney, the right choice as co-star.
