Peter Sanderson is a divorced, straight-laced, uptight attorney who still loves his ex-wife and can't figure out what he did wrong to make her leave him. However, Peter's trying to move on, and he's smitten with a brainy, bombshell barrister he's been chatting with online. However, when she comes to his house for their first face-to-face, she isn't refined, isn't Ivy League, and isn't even a lawyer. Instead, it's Charlene, a prison escapee who's proclaiming her innocence and wants Peter to help her clear her name. But Peter wants nothing to do with her, prompting the loud and shocking Charlene to turn Peter's perfectly ordered life upside down, jeopardizing his effort to get back with his wife and won a billion dollar client.Written by

Steve Martin and Eugene Levy worked together in Father of the Bride 2 (1995). They later worked together again in Cheaper by the Dozen (2005). See more »
When Peter takes Mrs. Arness, her dog William, and golf caddy out for a game of golf, there seems to be an extra player in their foursome. In the golf cart, sitting just behind the four, is a woman wearing a hat, taking off her socks. The woman is dressed exactly like Mrs. Arness. The woman then disappears entirely after Mrs. Arness takes a swing (she is Mrs. Arness' stunt double). See more »
What a hoot! Steve Martin at his wild and crazy best!
I loved it. Hit my funny bone in a BIG way. The scene on the couch was Steve Martin as I remember him at his wild and crazy (SNL) best! There are sooooo many good lines! How could you have found a better, laughable, racist than Betty White? And Eugene Levy attracted to the "dark side"...... I laugh until I hurt every time I watch it. Remember, the humor is so tongue in cheek, you can't take it seriously. Jean Smart has always been one of my favorites, but lacks a little pizzaz in this one--she's the only one I was disappointed in. Hello, you coco goddess! I especially like the banter between Charlene and the ex-sister-in-law. Ex-sister-in-law reminds me of a WKRP Jennifer, gone bad! Mark it down as one of my favorites!
