Kate is working on a career at Mercer Advertising but is passed up for promotion because she's 'not stable enough', still being single and having no ties to the company. A story is made up about her being engaged to Nick, a guy whom she just met at a friend's wedding, and all seems to work out well for Kate. She even gets the attention of a colleague she had always wanted, but events soon take a dramatic turn, forcing her to 'present' her alleged fiance to her boss.Written by
Allegedly, Jennifer Aniston had a hard time working with Jay Mohr and was mean to him. Mohr subtly referred to the incident in a 2010 interview : "Being on the set of a movie where the leading woman was unhappy with my presence and made it clear from day one." He later said in his Mohr Stories podcast that Aniston pointed right at him on the first day of rehearsal and screamed: "Six guys they screen-test! SIX ... The one f*****g guy I hate, that's the guy they hire. HIM!" Mohr alleges she returned to the soundstage after using the restroom and immediately continued haranguing him: "SIX!" This apparently "went on the entire day" as Aniston kept bad-mouthing him to costar Illeana Douglas. To sum up, Mohr swears "Jennifer Aniston was so f*****g mean to me." See more »

If you're a fan of the actors, it's reasonable to say you'll find something to enjoy here.
I only saw this film because of Kevin Bacon and Jennifer Aniston both being in it. Not a huge fan of either of them, but nevertheless I thought it might be interesting to see Aniston (during the peak of "Friends'" popularity) crossing over into mainstream film. For the most part, it works.
She's basically playing Rachel, her character from the TV show, again. Aniston's character is a shy, awkward business woman who isn't promoted due to the fact that she is considered "unstable" - no husband, family, etc. So she hires a fake boyfriend, Nick (Jay Mohr), to pose as her lover. She ends up winning the affections of a man she has a crush on in her office (Bacon), but then Nick begins to actually fall in love with her.
The title derives from the fact that she works at a picture agency, and that's where a lot of the film's scenes take place. It gets a little weary after a while, and is very predictable - but if you're a fan of the actors, it's reasonable to say you'll find something to enjoy here.
