plays an assistant to a go-getter television host () who falls in love with a new co-worker () and embarks upon the best relationship of her life. After selling her apartment to move in with him, she discovers that it’s all over and the only place she can find to live on such short notice is rooming with her oversexed, bad-attitude work colleague (), a guy who goes from one girl to the next in an effort to prove that the true love he once had with his girlfriend doesn’t exist. While moping around in her misery, our heroine stumbles upon a theory that equates men and their need to swap partners with research done on bulls who refuse to have sex with the same cow twice. Is it really true or is she just compensating for her own personal feelings of unworthiness?   The film’s ending is too much too soon, but throughout the bulk of its running time this is a pleasant film with much to recommend it. is excellent as Judd’s chatty best friend, Barkin is surprisingly not as her misguided boss and look for a cameo by Judd’s mother as her makeup lady.
