The film is very LoveItOrHateIt for all the of the reasons one might expect: its casting of Affleck and Lopez was horribly timed, as it came during the “Bennifer” craze, which [[DeaderThanDisco died out]] with the abysmal failure of ''Film/{{Gigli}}'' shortly before this film was released. It was also a huge overhaul of Kevin Smith’s traditions (small budgets, quarter-life crisis stories, excessive swearing), which [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks alienated a lot of fans and had critics accusing him of selling out]].

Like most of Smith’s films, it eventually [[VindicatedByHistory found its place on home video]].

Ollie (Creator/BenAffleck) is a workaholic music publicist living comfortably in [[BigApplesauce New York City]] whose wife Gertrude (Creator/JenniferLopez) [[spoiler: [[DeathByChildbirth tragically dies in childbirth]]]]. His responsibility for his newborn daughter eventually costs him his job, forcing him to move into his father’s (Creator/GeorgeCarlin) house in New Jersey. From then on, it’s the story of Ollie’s shaky attempts to raise his daughter, whom he named after her mother, as a single parent, all while deciding whether or not to return to the ritzy life in New York with her. Ollie also finds himself getting involved with a sexy video-store clerk named Maya (Creator/LivTyler).

This 2004 comedy-drama was Creator/KevinSmith’s first foray into more traditional Hollywood filmmaking, as well as his first film to be set outside of Franchise/TheViewAskewniverse.

* KnightInSourArmor: After his initial irresponsibility, Ollie becomes a loving, attentive father for his daughter, but still tries to convince her that his previous lofty lifestyle, as opposed to their simpler one with his father in New Jersey, will be good for her. When he tries to force her to move back to New York later in the movie, he gets so angry that he outright accuses her of taking his life away from him.
