How do siblings deal with each other in their targets? This is the question tackled in this movie. Blue-collared Mickey drives a New York taxicab since the breakup with his promiscuous ex-fiancée Heather two years ago. His younger, white-collared brother, Francis, cannot let Mickey forget the tragedy of the "hairy ass": (Mickey's image of his apartment floor of the guy having sex with Heather after walking in on them). Finding relief in driving his cab, Mickey meets an art student named Hope whom he marries after knowing her for only 24 hours. Mickey also meets his old lover Heather, and learns more about life itself as taxi fares in the course of a summer. Francis, a young Wall Street corporate raider, unhappy in his marriage to Renee and led by his infidelity, continues his shots at Mickey throughout the film, only to find himself a plot device that lends humor and lessons about marriage and brotherhood when he meets and starts an dangerous affair with Heather…

Did You Know?
Shot on a budget of $3 million, considerably more than the estimated budget of $20,000 that Edward Burns's previous film
The Brothers McMullen cost.
When Francis and Renee are first in the bedroom, Francis' leg is alternately raised/lowered between shots while he is reading.
Romance is great, but I just want to remind you, it don't pay the bills.
A fast-moving and nimble comedy with witty dialogue, an intelligent
well-developed characters and a credible ethnic ethos. It's unpretentious
and amiable, yet truly acerbic when it needs to be. The acting is mostly
Well done, Burns!
(I guess all of this will make the delayed-maturity stratum of movie fans
truly averse to this movie…)
