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.
Kate is working on a career at Mercer Advertising but is passed up for promotion because she's 'not stable enough', still being single and having no ties to the company. A story is made up about her being engaged to Nick, a guy whom she just met at a friend's wedding, and all seems to work out well for Kate. She even gets the attention of a colleague she had always wanted, but events soon take a dramatic turn, forcing her to 'present' her alleged fiance to her boss. Written by
Kevin Bacon, Kevin Dunn, and llleana Douglas also starred in Stir of Echoes (1999) together. See more »
While Nick and Kate are arguing in the restaurant, as the camera angles change, the levels of brandy in everyone's glasses alternately rise and fall, even though it is clear that everyone is wrapped up in the drama and not drinking. See more »
You know what, Sam? You're just always going to be that guy at the restaurant who, when he gets what he ordered, always wishes he got what the guy next to him did.

There is quite a bit of divergence here with the Imdb comments for this movie, which may reflect where people's hearts were at when they viewed it. This is not a block buster or Academy Awards winner, but I found it to be very enjoyable and certainly agree with all of the positive comments below. Actually, I was surprised how I liked it, since I am a 50 year old man and do not normally care for 'fluff movies'. The acting by Jennifer Aniston and John Mohr was very good, and the film gives an overall positive message for us all (Hollywood style, but it feels great). Watch it with someone you love, or if you have a warm romantic heart.
