Starring: Owen Wilson, Jack Nicholson, Reese Witherspoon, Paul Rudd
Lisa (Witherspoon) an aspiring softball player doesn't make it to the final team which makes her frustrated and depressed. She gets caught between two men; Matty (Wilson) the self-obsessed and ignorant baseball player and George (Rudd) a Wall Street executive who has a federal charge against him. George's father Charles (Nicholson) framed George for inappropriate business dealings since Charles himself feared going to prison if caught. George's life comes crashing when his girlfriend leaves him and his fathers companies' board of directors refuse to pay his legal fees. He finds solace in Lisa who is already in love with Matty but is unsure if she is doing the right thing. The movie is a plain-jane love saga with nothing exceptional to offer. Apart from the few giggles and laughs that the movie manages to conjure, it is more or less a complete waste of any ones time and money. Makes you wonder why any sane-minded person would make such movies.
