Michael Hoffman (Restoration, Soapdish) directs Michelle Pfeiffer and George Clooney in a beautifully contrived romantic comedy with a Manhattan setting that's exploited to the utmost. A veritable anthology of the perils of single parenting--demanding jobs, cellular phones, busy schedules, transportation hassles--this works a lot better than most Hollywood fluff because the leads are so good (and so well-defined, in Terrel Seltzer and Ellen Simon's deft script), and because Hoffman is a pro at keeping everything in motion. With Mae Whitman, Alex D. Linz, Ellen Greene, and Charles Durning. Biograph, Esquire, Ford City, Gardens, Golf Mill, Lake, Lincoln Village.
