In this parody of the '90s dating game, Nina's (Aniston) got a crush on George (Rudd) ? who's gay. After bonding with George, Nina dumps her less-than-sensitive hetero boyfriend and the father of her unborn child (Pankow), with the intention of raising the baby with her less-than-straight buddy. While Aniston further proves her comedic touch, it's surprisingly glib and hackneyed stuff from playwright Wasserstein.
