In his second outing, filmmaker Burns doesn't stray too far from his much-hyped directing debut, The Brothers McMullen, again hitting on family, love and morality. This time, however, he had a budget that allowed him to use real actors. The result? An entertaining but safe film that revolves around a pair of Irish-American brothers. Mickey (Burns) drives a cab and marries one of his fares (Bahns) 24 hours after they meet. Mickey's stockbroker brother, Francis (McGlone), is having an affair with Heather (Diaz) (who is Mickey's former fiancée) and assures her that he's not cheating on her with his wife (Aniston). The plot meanders, and the characters are less than likeable though closely observed. A great soundtrack, though.
