Storyline

L.A. soft-porn writer Carter Webb is frustrated enough, after his actress girlfriend dumps him, to need a serious break. He decides to spend it with his grandmother, who can't really take care of herself and her Detroit suburb house anyway. Helpful Carter soon overcomes mishaps to bond with the foxy neighbor across the street and her daughters. Helping them actually helps him regain perspective and self-confidence.

Goofs

When someone is suffering from acute neutropenia (a common low white blood count following chemotherapy), as is the stated case after Sarah is rushed to the hospital upon collapsing, she would be kept in an isolated environment and her family would not be free to just run into her room off the street and collapse onto her bed, hugging her. At the very least, they'd be gloved, gowned and masked to guard against the spread of infection to the patient. See more »

Quotes

Lucy Hardwicke: You know that was really hard for me to say? I mean what are you trying to do scare me? Well congratulations!
Carter Webb: I'm trying to wake you up! There's a big fucking world out there. It's messy, and it's chaotic, and it's never, it's never ever the thing you'd expect. It's ok to be scared but you cannot allow your fears to turn you into an asshole, not when it comes to the people that really love you, the people that need you.
Lucy Hardwicke: So I guess we're done right?
Carter Webb: Yeah, we're done.

Fresh, original and surprising!
20 April 2007 | by BSeverin-1See all my reviews

This movie was billed as a romantic comedy, but it's really a drama, and it was so much better than I expected! Redemptive and thought-provoking, this movie raises questions about if women and men can be friends without romantic undertones, and includes themes of forgiveness and living life fully. Meg Ryan is always real and lovable, and Adam Brody is a great counterpart. It's so great to see him as a leading man. I loved him in The O.C., but hopefully the bulk of his career is ahead of him. Scenes between him and the grandmother were hilarious. Very well directed. Definitely one to see with your friends and discuss over coffee afterwards--don't take your parents.
