His younger, white-collared brother, Francis, cannot let Mickey forget the tragedy of the "hairy ass": (Mickey's image of his apartment floor of the guy having sex with Heather after walking in on them). Finding relief in driving his cab, Mickey meets an art student named Hope whom he marries after knowing her for only 24 hours.

I don't know how I ended up with this movie, but I found a copy and decided to watch it after a boring day of work. Boy was I surprised.
The story moves along at a fast pace with good editing. What I really loved about the movie were two things.. Firstly, the character development. Not much into the movie, you knew what each character was all about. This is a feat hard to achieve and kudos to Ed Burns for achieving it with this movie.
Second.. and the more important thing that I liked about the movie.. The relationship between the family members.. basically the siblings and the father. It was realistic to some degree.. but also there was a special feeling of together-ness.
Overall - this was a "different" romantic comedy.. with some really funny moments and a pretty unique story. It should be rated much higher than what it is.. and I would definitely suggest people to watch it!
