A man suspects his girlfriend of being unfaithful. So he sends her a letter, but then finds out that he was wrong. He has twenty-four hours to stop the package, prevent a disaster, and fall in love. The only problem is the delivery man will not stop until the package has been delivered.Written by
When the delivery man switches to the front gas tank of the blown-up van, his hand and sleeve appears scorched by the flames. But when he yells out the door of the van waving the package, he isn't scorched at all, and then he shows up in Memphis burned all over. See more »
Slut? Oh, oh, no. If I wanna bag a professor from one of my classes, I will, but nobody, and I mean nobody, calls me a slut, so the next time you feel like casting aspersions on my character, try remembering that this quote unquote slut is driving your judgmental ass all the way to Des Moines. So a little decency would be in order. Got it? Good.

The TV version is significantly different from the home video/cable version. This version, though edited, contains several alternate/deleted scenes. Among them: More dialogue in the opening car scene, a scene in the beginning of Trips having flowers delivered to Kimberly, and an additional scene outside the jail of Trips and Ivy walking along the sidewalk reminiscing.

This movie is a little gem, a straight-to-video film with a heart of gold.
Wyatt Trips (Paul Rudd) is still lovingly dating his high school sweetheart, Kim (Christine Taylor). The day before Valentine's Day, he calls her up only to hear about a late night escapade with "The Ricker" from her roommate. Thinking she has cheated on him, he gets extremely upset. His buddies take him to a strip club to cheer him up, where he meets stripper Ivy Miller (Reese Witherspoon). The two team up to write a break up letter, complete with fake used condom and topless picture of them together, to send to Kim, via overnight delivery. However, when Wyatt finds out they he was wrong, he pulls Ivy into a cross-country road trip to get the letter back from an over-achieving delivery man. But could Wyatt end up falling for Ivy instead? (Gee, I wonder) This movie may have some completely insane plot twists and situations that you would just never see, but the stars make it work. Paul Rudd is adorably lovable as Wyatt. He's hilarious and has great physical comedy. Reese Witherspoon gives a perky, funny performance as Ivy. Its one of her more memorable romantic comedy characters.
The movie is so under the radar that it is barely known, but it should be. Any lovers of romantic comedies will fall in love with it, and there's even humor of the likes that would keep the guys interested. A heartwarming movie that will make you feel good all over :)
