Alex, a novelist with serious writer's block and an even more serious gambling problem needs to finish his novel to pay his gaming debts. Frantically working to complete his novel in 30 days, Alex hires Emma, stenographer with strongly held opinions. Now, as characters resembling Emma appear in Alex's work and Emma challenges Alex's ideas at every turn, life begins to imitate art, and art to imitate life and Emma's irritating, intriguing influence on the novelist develops into a love between Alex & Emma.

Critics Consensus: A dull and unfunny comedy where the leads fail to generate any sparks.

This isn't one for the time capsule -- just bury it.

Uninspired -- neither romantic nor comic.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this movie has sexual references and situations, including a comic but graphic sexual encounter with partial nudity that is strong for a PG-13. Characters have sex without any meaningful commitment. Characters drink and use strong language. There is peril and violence in a comic context but constituting a genuine threat and a death (from natural causes) that is played for grisly humor.
