Film: Jersey Girl

The story of a publicist, named Ollie (Olliver)'s fantastic New York life. That is, until tragedy strikes and he has to live with his dad in New Jersey with his daughter. Family fun ensues as he tries to cope, with the help of his family and friend(s).

If that description is too vague, here is what it says on the box: "Hollywood favorites Ben Affleck (Daredevil, Paycheck, The Sum of All Fears) and Liv Tyler (The Lord of the Rings trilogy, Armageddon) shine in this heartwarming all-star comedy about a guy who thinks he's lost it all, only to discover he's got everything he needs! Ollie (Affleck) is a smooth and successful big-city publicist who has the life he's always wanted - until things take an unexpected turn and he finds himself an unemployed single father back living with his dad in the suburbs. But just when he thinks his life has hit rock bottom, a sexy, no-nonsense video store clerk (Tyler) enters his life and shows Ollie that sometimes you have to forget who thought you were and acknowledge what really makes you happy. Also starring Jennifer Lopez (Maid In Manhattan) and Jason Biggs (American Pie) - director Kevin Smith (Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back) has delivered another hit critics are calling one of the year's funniest!"
