Soulmates Jeanne Tripplehorn and Dylan McDermott are perfect for each other, if only they could meet, while Sarah Jessica Parker plays a child star who is dating McDermott and doesn’t realize she’s in destiny’s way. These three attractive and committed actors add a lot of glamour to this pretty routine but enjoyable film, one that boasts a charming score and some nice production detail, not to mention a supporting role by Jennifer Aniston. Anyone looking for a nice romantic comedy will enjoy it, but be warned it feels like it’s about half an hour longer than it should be.
