Jennifer Aniston is delightful in this romantic comedy as a ladder-climbing advertising executive who gets wedding photographer Jay Mohr to pose as her fiance to impress her employers and stimulate the man of her dreams (Kevin Bacon). It’s not hard to see where this clutzy little arrangement will take these two, but at least the performers are talented and appealing enough to make it go down easily. Illeana Douglas has an excellent supporting role as Aniston’s co-worker, and Olympia Dukakis has a wonderful small part as her concerned mother.
