An innocent game of airline ticket switcheroo turns deadly in Don Roos' second feature film. Gwyneth Paltrow plays Abby, a struggling Realtor in mourning over her recently deceased husband. She gets a helping hand and a touch of flirting to boot from Buddy, a flashy Los Angeles advertising executive (Ben Affleck). But the lonely widow doesn't know that prince charming gave his seat on the fatal flight to her late husband. This deep, dark secret opens up a wormy can of deceit, alcoholism, grief, family values and even a mushy and expedient court trial. Affleck and Paltrow deliver touching performances with captivating chemistry, but they are muddled down when Roos, the acclaimed writer/director of The Opposite of Sex, tries to tackle too many substantial subjects at once, creating an inefficient mess.
