Things get a little awkward when Harry suffers a heart attack at the home of Marin's mother Erica. Left in the care of Erica and his doctor, a love triangle starts to take shape.Written by
When Erica kisses Harry in the scenes outside the restaurant in New York City, it was an improvisation by Diane Keaton. Writer and Director Nancy Meyers liked it so much, that she decided to use it in the final cut of the movie. See more »
When she finishes her writing, Erica sets down the glasses she has, and in the next shot they are turned over. See more »
Wait. You're leaving, Zoe's leaving, the entourage is leaving. You mean I'm going to be alone in this house... with HIM?
Well, the hospital's sending over a nurse first thing in the morning.
In the morning? That's like nineteen hours from now!

I generally dislike Jack Nicholson, although I certainly think he is a very talented and gifted actor... so I watched this movie somewhat reluctantly on the recommendation of a friend. To my surprise, I liked it. I too am a woman "of a certain age" and I found myself responding to this movie very much in the context of a woman Diane Keaton's age. I laughed to tears over her creativity surge-- she very accurately portrayed that kind of grief over a relationship lost... amazing! I must say however, that if I were in a position to choose between Keannu Reeves and Jack Nicholson.. well there's no decision to make--the young stud muffin would win in a heartbeat!...(although Jack really was quite charming once he got over being such a putz).. Anyway.. a fun movie that is well done...
