A sassy, savvy romantic comedy about two guys and a girl and the inevitable complications. Max Abbitt (David Schwimmer) is a brash, cocksure young Chicago sportscaster, so smooth and radiantly self-satisfied that he'd be beating girls off

with a stick if he didn't just take the path of least resistance and sleep with them all. Jay Murphy (Jason Lee) is his best friend from childhood, a shy, sensitive type who's still trying to get over the snooty model (Vanessa Angel) -- go ahead, hate her because she's beautiful -- who broke his

heart in so many ways you could write a book about it, which is what exactly he's doing. Jay hooks his editor, Samantha Andrews (Mili Avital), up with Max and then wonders if he's made the biggest mistake of his life when the two most important people in his life fall in love, move in together and

start planning the wedding in less time than it takes the average couple to commit to a three-day weekend. Then Max gets cold feet and enlists Jay's aid in a scheme to determine whether Sam is the straying type. It's the same old comedy of miscommunication, but tone is everything -- and the tone

here is pure, gleeful acid, supplied by chain-smoking, scotch-swilling narrator Linda (Bonnie Hunt), Sam's boss and the sort of raconteur who inspires otherwise sweet-as-twinkies types to say, "If you don't have anything nice to say, come sit here by me."
