Added DiffLines:

* 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.

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 in 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]].

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 deceased mother, as a single parent, all while deciding whether or not to return to the ritzy life in New York with her.

* TrailersAlwaysSpoil: Interesting example. [[spoiler:Gertrude dying]] was supposed to be a major twist and JenniferLopez was meant to get a top billing. However after Film/{{Gigli}} flopped with critics and audiences [[PortmanteauCoupleName Bennifer]] started suffering from a major HypeBacklash. In attempt at damage control Lopez was DemotedToExtra and [[spoiler: her death]] became a major part of advertising campaign.
