Jack (Freddie Prinze Jr.) is an advertising executive in his early Thirties who has grown jaded before his time; he devotes his life to his work but doesn't believe in it, and is trapped in a cycle of habits and routines.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Blind to the fact that it should be rising up against its own formulaic kind."
‑ Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
"...ultimately establishes itself as an affable endeavor that benefits substantially from the charismatic work of its two leads."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"There's an overwhelming and quite repellent amount of gloss applied to the finished product, yet underneath it all are many scenes of honest emotional confession, distributed through wonderful atypical performances."
‑ Brian Orndorf, BrianOrndorf.com
"Parise no doubt intends the pic's attention to the disease -- plus animal adoption and fair trade coffee -- to be socially enlightening, but it feels suspiciously like sympathy-mongering."
‑ Peter Debruge, Variety
"Achieves the holy trinity of painful earnestness, combining cute animals, sick teenagers and an idealistic belief in love and goodness that's actually deceptively judgmental."
‑ Matt Pais, Metromix.com
"Considering the talent assembled, the only audience draw here is the prospect of getting out of the rain."
‑ Mark Keizer, Boxoffice Magazine
"More farce might have served the film well; as Parise draws from a playbook of medical melodrama and romantic-comedies clichés, her moral about living outside the box becomes harder and harder to swallow."
‑ Sam Sweet, L.A. Weekly
"Written, directed, acted-in and produced by Parise, she's proven her creds as a one-woman employment agent. But, by now, she should be picking up that directing is a weak spot."
‑ Jules Brenner, Cinema Signals
