I really enjoyed this movie and highly recommend it. Based on the novel by Stephen McCauley, I think it would be incorrect to classify it as a romantic comedy. The story line is unique and complicated - not that it's difficult to follow because it's not, just a lot going on - in this case, a good thing.
Jennifer Aniston plays Nina, a young woman who is at odds with the too most important people in her life, her boyfriend and her sister. Paul Rudd plays George, a young gay man who recently broke up with his live-in boyfriend. Nina and George meet at a party, become friends and move in together. What results is a complicated relationship that draws a fine line between love, sex and friendship. To say much more would be a spoiler.
I've seen most films starring Jennifer Aniston, and I think this is her best performance. As usual, Paul Rudd plays his part well, his character being the most balanced and sensitive of all. Fine performances and strong characters, which are essential to the plot, are shared by an all-star cast, including Nigel Hawthorne, Allison Janney, Alan Alda, Vince McBride and Tim Daly.

Such a sweet movie. This is one I've watched over and over again. Paul Rudd is adorable and Jennifer Aniston is at her best here. Highly overlooked movie.
