Playing By Heart


Willard Carroll's cleverly interconnected (sometimes annoyingly so) tale of six different relationships is populated by a horde of big-name stars, from Sean Connery, who mimics a puppy dog at one point (scary), to Jon Stewart, who ends up in bed with Gillian Anderson's monster dog (better). In the end, of course, the characters who aren't already attached produce the necessary "I love you" ASAP -- like, after a single date.
