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.

He is supposed to be teaching kids the basics of art and science. He is better known for his musical adaptations of various works.

Nina Borowski (Aniston) is a social worker, currently employed as a teen councilor in a community center. She is seen giving advise to teenage girls about their sexual lives.

When Nina stays pregnant, her first thought is to turn to George and ask him to raise a kid together. He is tempted because it might be his only chance to keep her in his life for good and also become a father. But their only attempt to have sex with each other is interrupted by a phone call. George soon meets young actor Paul James (Amo Gulinello) and falls for him. Which obviously puts a strain on his relationship with Nina. The two have to sort out the mess before the birth of the baby.
