Minnie Driver is reluctant to date a year after major surgery, but there’s something compelling about David Duchovny, who’s only just getting over the death of his wife. Director Bonnie Hunt devoutly evokes early romantic comedies, enhancing a rather literal answer to the question of what two lovers see in each other with stylish elements that make many moments enjoyable. But there’s little rapport between Duchovny and Driver after their initial meeting. More exciting and suspenseful is the relationship between Driver’s confidant (Hunt) and her husband (James Belushi), who can’t seem to get all their kids to go to sleep at the same time. Hunt wrote the screenplay with Don Lake; with David Alan Grier, Joely Richardson, Carroll O’Connor, Robert Loggia, Eddie Jones, Marianne Muellerleile, and William Bronder. 113 min.
