 and Salma Hayek are two strangers in the night who comfort each other to beat their loneliness. He thinks it was just a one-night thing until she shows up at his doorstep with a bun in her oven. Though she insists that she doesn’t expect anything of him, that she only felt that he should know about his own child, Perry decides to do the honourable thing and marry her, in the process falling madly in love and embracing each other’s very disparate lives wholeheartedly. This is no fantastically memorable film, but it poignantly covers many awkward and difficult points that are involved in a relationship between two people bound by both their affection and an overwhelming responsibility. Hayek is wonderful, and Perry probably gives his only big-screen performance that mostly discards his familiar television personality.
