The film was a modest box office hit. Its worldwide gross is estimated to 46,905,889 dollars, about three times its budget. About 29 million of these dollars came from the United States market, where it was the 67th most successful film of its year. It received mixed reviews. RogerEbert pointed that it dealt with serious issues and had some very effective scenes. But that it was overly reminiscent of a sitcom, while the best lines were delivered by Rodney Fraser (Nigel Hawthorne), a supporting character with little screen time. Ruthe Stein praised the honest portrayal of the relationships, the overal appeal of the main characters and the general avoidance of CampGay elements. Other critics have both praised the film for its wit and criticized some of its unconvincing subplots.

George and Nina meet after the school play, at a society party hosted by Nina's stepsister Constance Miller (Allison Janney) and her husband Sidney (Creator/AlanAlda). Nina has been looking for a roommate. Joley apparently put on a good word for George, explaining that he would soon need a new apartment. George is shocked to only learn that from her. It is his lover's not so subtle way of telling him that he is kicking him out. Joley is leaving him for a younger man, one of his students. George does move in with Nina. They spent much of their free time together, even taking dancing lessons. Also talking about his personal history. In particular, how he used to date a girl in high school and only discovered his orientation when at college. Nina continues sleeping with Vince, and becomes pregnant with his child, but is falling hard for George.

The film starts by introducing its main characters and their respective occupations. George Hanson (Rudd), a first grade teacher at a private school, is making the opening remarks before the class play, whose cast includes the step-niece of Nina Borowski (Aniston). George is openly gay, currently in a relationship with Dr. Robert Joley (Tim Daly), a professor and biographer of Creator/GeorgeBernardShaw. Nina is a social worker, currently employed as a teen counselor at a community center in Brooklyn. She is seen giving advice to teenage girls about their sexual lives, cautioning them against promiscuity by telling them, "If I had sex with a guy, I'd want him to be my friend." She is in a relationship with Vince [=McBride=], a lawyer for the Legal Aid Society (the largest not-for-profit legal services organization of the United States) and a rather overbearing individual.
