Storyline

Ryan is a womanizing stockbroker whose unethical business practices cost him his job and his trader's license. 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 »

I loved it
2 February 2004 | by vixen_taylor2003See all my reviews

I loved this film and thought it was absolutely hilarious! The comedy is well directed and the love affair between Angie Harmon(Page Henson) and Charlie Sheen(Ryan Turner) is unexpected and comes as a surprise. Denise Richards is at good at being bitchy and is hilarous as the money hungry bimbo. The script is smart and the supporting actors (Jon Lovitz and Rosanna Arquette) give the film a good touch. I would definately recommend it!
