* BrickJoke: Gertie repeatedly asks her dad to take her to see ''{{Theatre/Cats}}'', but because it's no longer running, they see ''SweeneyTodd'' instead. Later, at the school pageant, they're the only ones who ''don't'' sing "Memory."

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 ďBenniferĒ 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 Smithís 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 Smithís 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 fatherís (Creator/GeorgeCarlin) house in New Jersey. From then on, itís the story of Ollieís 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).
