Storyline

Unable to find another job, he is forced to move in with his equally self-involved (and completely oblivious) girlfriend, Cindy, an insensitive advice columnist on the cusp of losing her own job due to her poor advice and slow work habits. Finding that the truth behind his moving in has nothing to do with romance, Cindy runs off with another man. Ryan decides to stay in the apartment and earn a living by doing Cindy's job. Ryan establishes himself with Cindy's editor, Page, as Cindy's go-fer, collecting Cindy's paychecks and mail and delivering "her" columns. Initially as hopelessly inept as Cindy in giving advice, he nearly gets the column canceled. However, he rapidly grows into the job and the combination of forced introspection, research and the growing knowledge that he is touching other people's lives transforms him.

Goofs

When Ryan is talking with Page over drinks/contract discussions, the camera moves in and out from Ryan/Page to Page. In the switch between close-up and distant shots, you see locks of hair dangling near Page's face in the close-ups, but, in the distant shots, her hair is perfectly set. See more »

Quotes

Ryan: I'd kill myself right now, but I'd probably end up in Hell, and that would be redundant.
Barry: Well, at least you'd be among friends.

Delightful surprise
26 October 2002 | by See all my reviews

I'm happy that I hadn't read the negative review on this site before I saw the DVD on the video store shelf -- otherwise, I would have passed over a good movie. I knew nothing about it before seeing it on the shelf, so perhaps my expectations were low. True, it was not Academy Award material, but it was a good romantic comedy -- cute and funny. And that was the unanimous consensus of the 2 females and 1 male who watched it together. Give it a try!
