Cast:Jamie Foxx, Morris Chestnut, Gabrielle Union, Jennifer Esposito, Peter MacNicol
Screen Writer:Daniel Taplitz
Genre:Comedy, Romance

By Joe MacLeod | Posted 5/19/2004

An agreeable, scattered bit of fluff carried by funnyman Jamie Foxx (The Great White Hype, Any Given Sunday) as a buppie-bourgie magazine editor embroiled in workplace stress and romantic-comedy situations, notably featuring a smooth, dewy Gabrielle Union (Deliver Us From Eva, Bad Boys II) and toothsome man-eater Jennifer Esposito (Summer of Sam, Don't Say a Word). Also featuring Morris Chestnut (The Brothers, Like Mike) as a "player" always blabbering on about "the rules," Peter MacNicol (TV's Ally McBeal) in the asexual-putz-in-a-business-suit slot, and an alcoholic pug, but sadly, no product-placement for the stuff the pooch gets all fucked up on.
