Even though the dinner is awkward, they begin spending time together although she insists to her mother and her employee Marty (Judy Greer) that they are not "dating".It seems, however, that Burke has not been following his own advice, and in fact has not been dealing with the loss of his wife.Soon after their reunion, the always-at-odds duo find themselves on a run-for-their-lives adventure.
He's persistent and they eventually go to dinner - it goes badly. You were born that way, you can't take credit for it. I was expecting the standard romantic comedy chick flick.In the end, he confesses to an audience that he was driving the car, and not his wife, as he previously maintained. Eloise, along with his wife's father (Martin Sheen), help Burke move past his wife's death.Burke goes to Eloise, telling her that she had spent the last few days getting to know the part of him that was not available and wondered was she interested in getting to know the part of him that was available.Although there are plenty of funny moments in this movie, it has an emotional depth that is very appealing.It also has another really great performance by Aaron Eckhart, who must be one of the most unappreciated actors in the business.
