Author Alex (Luke Wilson) has 30 days to complete his novel in order to collect money from his publisher and pay off the Cuban hoods he owes $100,000. Suffering from writer's block, he hires stenographer Emma (Kate Hudson) to help him meet the deadline. The feisty Emma, however, has her own ideas on how Alex's tale should go, and as the bickering couple fall in love the story-within-a-story about a tutor (Wilson) and his two loves unfolds. Spirited romp co-stars Sophie Marceau and Rob Reiner (who also directed). 96 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtracks: English Dolby Digital 5.1, French Dolby Digital 5.1; Subtitles: English, French, Spanish; audio commentary by Wilson, Reiner; theatrical trailer.
