PG Certificate


Our Score
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.


The working day for two mismatched single professionals is thrown into turmoil when their children have to stay at home after missing a school trip. The pair agree to take it in turns to babysit while struggling to stick to their hectic schedules - but during the course of the day their feelings for each other blossom unexpectedly. Romantic comedy, starring George Clooney, Michelle Pfeiffer, Charles Durning and Mae Whitman.
