In this pleasant romantic breeze, keen-as-mustard, 30-something softball champion Reese Witherspoon goes looking for love when she's dropped from the team. However, she's spoilt for choice - there's Owen Wilson's womanising baseball pitcher... or Paul Rudd's businessman, who's being investigated for fraud. It doesn't help that his overbearing dad (Jack Nicholson) is also in the picture. Writer-director James L Brooks returns to the emotional minefield he charted in As Good As It Gets.
