Comedy, Drama, Romance
Simon Baker (Land of the Dead) plays Brian, a landscape architect who more or less embodies the female ideal of masculinity. He has big muscles that come from manual labor rather than the gym, he knows all about gardening, he loves animals, he talks about his feelings, and he's better at interior design than most women. The only question is what the hell Brian sees in Kenya (Sanaa Lathan), an uptight senior accountant who also happens to be an obsessive-compulsive control freak. Kenya's a career woman in the Maureen Dowd mode, who laments that men can't see what a wonderful catch a smart career woman is, all the while maintaining a mental checklist that ensures that no man interested in her will be good enough for her. In most ways, this interracial romance is run-of-the-mill, but it's virtually unprecedented in contemporary Hollywood for a white man in a comedy to be more down-to-earth, spontaneous, relaxed, and macho than any of the otherwise all-black cast.
