Melanie Parker (Michelle Pfeiffer) is juggling single parenthood with a career as an architect. Jack Taylor (George Clooney) is a commitment-shy newspaper columnist who only has his daughter every other weekend. When their kids miss a school field trip, Melanie and Jack agree to take shifts babysitting for the day, resulting in twelve hours of hilarious misadventures with one unexpected twist.
This is a great light hearted romantic comedy. The children are surprisingly good actors. It is a little dated in that the plot is pretty much to formula. Clooney and Pfeiffer are well cast. I wasn't really in the mood for such froth but if you are it's good.
