She has a hit radio talk show, an impending book deal, and a loving relationship with her fiancé, Richard, a conventional sort-which is precisely what Emma is drawn to.

When Emma is coming out of commercial during her radio show, the producer counts her down for her next segment with the words "five, four, three, two, one". No one in radio or television would ever vocalize the word, "one" in a countdown. This number is always replaced with a vertical finger signal to represent "one" and a direct finger point to show "zero" or "begin". Since the microphone always goes live on "two" the audience would otherwise constantly be hearing a disembodied voice say "one" when they come out of commercial. See more »

This cake is fantastic!
You mix these two together, it tastes just like a ring-ding.

Uma Thurman is sweet and funny, vulnerable and lovably flustered at times as a radio relationship advice host. She thinks she has relationships all figured out, not only those of the folks who call in to her show, but her own relationships as well. But oh, how wrong she is, not just about her upcoming marriage but about other people in her life as well.
Colin Firth as Richard is not putting his all into the performance, but then his character is supposed to be rather bland.
The chemistry between Uma's character and the fireman was sweet, and believable. He was a bit clumsy but well able to laugh at himself. His good heart and attachment to his friends came through in many small ways, and you knew he was basically a good man.
The modern woman with the ideal man and the sensible wedding all lined up (until someone else enters the picture) is a well-used plot but that doesn't stop this movie from having unexpected twists and charms along the way. I found it well worth the evening of relaxing in front of the TV.
