Storyline

Burke is a motivational speaker whose book about dealing with grief is a best seller. His wife died in a car accident three years ago. He's in Seattle to lead a week-long workshop on healing and to negotiate a major multi-media deal. But something's amiss: he's a closet drinker, he won't ride elevators, his moods swing, he's estranged from his wife's father, and he's very much alone. In a hotel hallway, he bumps into a woman arranging flowers, tries to chat with her, and gets the brush-off. She's Eloise, a local florist who's just broken up with a boyfriend. He's persistent and they eventually go to dinner - it goes badly. What's blocking Burke? Can the physician heal himself. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trivia

Jennifer Aniston was never in Seattle during shooting of the film. Her face is never seen during the scenes depicting Seattle landmarks, a body double (who always faced away from the camera) was used instead. See more »

Goofs

When Walter enters the hotel lobby and sees Burke, he puts the "A-OK!" lanyard on backwards, with the solid blue side facing out, and the camera cuts to a smiling Burke. When it cuts back to Walter, the lanyard is around his neck with the name tag side correctly facing outward. See more »

Quotes

Burke: During your travels, it's important to always keep one thing in mind: when one thing ends, something else begins.

A movie that was clichéd but overall not bad
29 September 2009 | by pepe4u22See all my reviews

This is a movie that I think was publicized incorrectly and yet I know when my companion and I went we liked it even though a lot of clichés were evident...the twist at the end was so telegraphed it was not and suspense though the acting of Aaron Eckhardt was very good, Martin Sheen also shone brightly ..Jennifer Aniston was serviceable though she seems to play a variant of the same character in every movie...Not a classic by any means but not a dreck i would say 2.5/5 and it was a nice date movie but no new territory explored that has not been done before...But it is not bad to see and like i said before the acting of Aaron Eckhardt and Martin Sheen raise the level of this movie with spirited performances.
