Rosie (40), a divorced mother, produces the has-been TV comedy You Go Girl. Her boss no longer allows the show to tackle any vaguely controversial subjects, so it seems doomed. Then she meets at an audition Adam Perl (29), an attractive, spontaneously funny, single actor. She successfully casts him, which revives the show's ratings. She also dates him, but her pathological insecurity, focused on their age difference, compromises the relationship. That culminates when she suspects him of infidelity with the show's star, and the studio gives those two their own sitcom. Written by

Pretty impressive, huh? People tend to think of me as that, uh, environmental nut. But whenever I get down to work they say, 'Mother Nature, you're such a destructive bitch'.

I must say that I really enjoyed this film. I found myself smiling and giggling throughout this entire movie. The chemistry between Michelle Pheifer and Paul Rudd was spot on. I also loved the mother/daughter relationship between Rosie (Michelle Pheifer) and Izzie(Saoirse Ronan). And I must say that all of the small appearances and mentions of such an array of celebrities really added that little something to this script.
So my recommendation...grab your best girlfriend and enjoy! (Although I think your boyfriends/husbands will enjoy this movie as well. It does have the beautiful Michelle Pheifer and hilarious Paul Rudd in it!)
