A morally complex role for Julia makes for a funny, original comedy. Cameron Diaz tries very hard to steal the movie from Roberts. But the big logical gap in the plot still burns us: Why would Julia fight so hard to catch... Dermot Mulroney? He doesn't strike anyone as the "guy-friend you are in love with but don't realize it until it's too late". I love how she starts smoking whenever her anxiety cranks up. NOTE: If you get a chance, check out the teaser trailer for this movie. It's perfect. It sets up the premise of the movie and then leaves you dangling!
