Not too much story here, but the film's charm and endearing characters make Nick and Jane a winner. Frazzled executive Jane (Wheeler-Nicholson) needs to make some changes in her life. Her chaotic work schedule doesn't leave much time for her friends, and her smug, obnoxious boyfriend is having an affair. After a few chance meetings with Nick (McCaffrey), a New York cab driver/artist who's also having some life problems, Jane and her friend Vicky (Hamilton) decide to use Nick to make her now former boyfriend jealous. They transform the scruffy Nick into a hot Wall Street type in a sequence that nostalgically recalls Pygmalion and present him at a ritzy corporate party. Romance blossoms. Nick and Jane is better than it sounds, really.
