The couple have recently split, with Gwen pairing up with a Spanish actor, Hector (Azaria), and Eddie in a rest home, getting therapy. Hal Weidmann (Walken), the eccentric director of latest film, has demanded that the first viewing of the film - before even anyone at the studio sees it - be at a press junket. Lee's job is to keep up the illusion that Gwen and Eddie are still a couple, getting them back together at least until the press junket for the movie.

The usual formulaic deal here. The cast's combined charm makes this rom-com trek slightly more bearable and the supporting players managed a few laughs out of me.

Piece of studio made bore! Look at the female leads for explanation.

This movie is about a pair of broken up american sweethearts (John Cusack and Catherine Zeta Jones). John plays Eddie and Catherine plays Gwen. Eddie's agent, Lee (Billy Crystal), tries to get them back together with the help of Gwen's sister, Kiki (Julia Roberts), because the latest film's director, played by Christopher Walken, is holding the film captive. Once everything goes according to plan, what would happen if Kiki has a few feelings hidden in the closet about her sister's ex-sweetheart?
