He passes off his feisty girlfriend as the real author. Then the publishers want to arrange public appearance for the author, and the pawpaw hits the fan...

Visitor Comments
Ian Douglas: Offbeat Aussie romance which follows a somewhat different pattern to the usual Hollywood fare. However there is not really much substance to the movie.

Eveymartine Brogan: A gem!

Jean Grey: Very sad and romantic, Hugh Jackman was fantastic!
