A widower whose book about coping with loss turns him into a best-selling self-help guru, falls for the hotel florist where his seminar is given, only to learn that he hasn't yet truly confronted his wife's passing.
A bounty hunter learns that his next target is his ex-wife, a reporter working on a murder cover-up. Soon after their reunion, the always-at-odds duo find themselves on a run-for-their-lives adventure.
Hunky NY lawyer Jeff Daly finally got engaged to fickle Sarah Huttinger, who presents him to her Pasadena family, who all soon take to him, for her sister's wedding to Scott. But Jeff's clever counting makes Sarah realize her dad Earl isn't her biological father. Once movie clues from family indicate as suspect successful author Beau Burroughs, she insists on meeting him. Only like her mother and grandmother, she has a one night-stand with Beau, which may well cost her Jeff.Written by
In the beginning of the film, on the plane, Jennifer Aniston's character says she's not wearing her engagement ring so she doesn't "steal my sisters thunder". On Friends (1994), Rachel stole Monica's thunder on her engagement night, by kissing Ross. See more »
When Sarah and Beau are in his plane going down the runway, as a pilot, Beau would be wearing a headset to communicate with the tower or with air traffic control, but he isn't. However if we assume he has a private airstrip there would be no tower and he may have chosen to put on his headset later. See more »

"No real people are portrayed in this film. This is a fictional film, inspired by something that supposedly happened a long time ago." See more »
I walked out of "Fun With Dick and Jane" fuming. I went into this other "comedy" and I stayed. I even laughed a couple of times and smiled a great deal, thanks , mostly, to Shirley MacLaine. The idea was fun, to meet the real characters that inspired "The Graduate" and, in fact, the best moment is the confrontation between Mrs. Robinson (Shirley MacLaine) and Benjamin (Kevin Costner) There is a lavish party and some spectacular travelogues of Northern California but Jennifer Aniston, my dear, take a sabbatical. She was so good in "The Good Girl" But here, a sub Rachel infuriating thing. What's with her mouth? She twitches and bites her lips and represses her smiles and it's dizzying and annoying and anti-comedy. Look at Shirley MacLaine for goodness sake! Has Jennifer Aniston seen "The Apartment"? I know I'm not making much sense but it's not my fault. I blame Rob Reiner really and his scriptwriters and his producers. How many jokes can you make about Pasadena? Please guys, listen to Shirley.
