Melanie Parker, an architect and mother of Sammy, and Jack Taylor, a newspaper columnist and father of Maggie, are both divorced. They meet one morning when overwhelmed Jack is left unexpectedly with Maggie and forgets that Melanie was to take her to school. As a result, both children miss their school field trip and are stuck with the parents. The two adults project their negative stereotypes of ex-spouses on each other, but end up needing to rely on each other to watch the children as each must save his job. Humor is added by Sammy's propensity for lodging objects in his nose and Maggie's tendency to wander.

Did You Know?
George Clooney held Mae Whitman in front of his face to hide that his eye was bruised during a basketball game in the scene when Jack shows up at Melanies' apartment.
The plastic wrap on the fishbowl changes between shots. When Melanie first leaves her apartment to go to Maggie's there is no wrap on it. When she's on the street and arrives at school it is covered with wrap and a rubber band. Maggie removes the wrap at "breakfast" and it remains uncovered when Jack takes it to his office.

How this film should be appreciated
This film is one of my favorites. I absolutely love it. I'm not entirely
sure why i just find it really sweet and the two stars are both perfectly
charming throughout. I used to have this on in the background whenever I
homework. Maybe I was just at that age when I was starting to appreciate
romance when I saw it in the cinema (3 times) but I still feel this is one
of the best romantic comedies I've ever seen and would definately
it to anyone. It's a great shame that a gem like this is so
ALL of the acting is suberb. George clooney is entertaining as always in
this film he made whilst it was still being debated as to whether he could
transcend tv and become a movie star.
