3 out of 5

In this warm-hearted but underwritten romantic comedy, George Clooney stars as a newspaper reporter saddled with parental responsibilities when he's forced to look after his five-year-old daughter while his ex-wife is on honeymoon. Into his life comes Michelle Pfeiffer, who's struggling to hold down a job and bring up a child, and the couple reluctantly agree to help each other out - only to find that what can go wrong naturally does. Clooney, Pfeiffer and Mae Whitman (as Clooney's daughter) are suitably charming, but they are all let down by a very bratty and irritating performance from Alex D Linz (of Home Alone 3 fame) as Pfeiffer's hideous son, and the uninspired direction of Michael Hoffman.

Plot Summary

Single parents Jack Taylor and Melanie Parker both have busy careers, which makes it difficult for them to find time for their respective children. Discovering they are in the same predicament, they arrange to take it in turns looking after the youngsters for a day - with romantic consequences.
