SHE WAS PREPARED FOR ANYTHING UNTIL LOVE STORMED IN.
Ad executive Kate Mosley (Jennifer Aniston) has every chance to climb the ladder at the agency, but her superiors want to see stability in her life – which is why she invents a boyfriend. This romantic comedy was meant to launch a career in movies for Friends star Aniston. Her charm carries the story at times, but the plot is moronic and Kevin Bacon and Jay Mohr’s characters are very underwritten. That’s a shame, especially when you’ve got Bacon in the cast. The movie breezes through effortlessly, but is alarmingly short on laughs.
1997-U.S. 100 min. Color. Directed by Glenn Gordon Caron. Cast: Jennifer Aniston (Kate Mosley), Jay Mohr (Nick), Kevin Bacon (Sam Mayfair), Olympia Dukakis, Illeana Douglas, Kevin Dunn.
