Summary: Ditzy chick tries to romance gay man.
Jennifer Aniston plays a ditzy blonde who has romantic challenges with her roommate and other people. Sounds like a TV show, doesn't it? This movie goes a little deeper than that, thankfully. So, she falls in love with a gay man, thinking that maybe, just maybe, they can work it out and live happily ever after. And the movie plays along this absurd line of reasoning for a while, but then the guy's inner nature gets the best of him, and we're off to the races with angst and despair. Great stuff. The supporting cast is amusing as well, although Alan Alda could certainly be doing better work. Overall the movie is an interesting view on the various kinds of gay lifestyles, and how their friends and "associates" react to them.
