For Kiki (Julia Roberts), being the personal assistant to beautiful megastar Gwen (Catherine Zeta-Jones) isn’t easy. In fact, it’s nearly impossible since the man of her dreams is Eddie (John Cusack), Gwen’s estranged husband. The job gets even harder when Kiki is given the monumental task of helping Gwen and Eddie make it through a movie press junket organized by publicity exec Lee Phillips (Billy Crystal), lured out of retirement for one last go-round.Eddie and Gwen are America’s Sweethearts, a superstar couple with the repartee of Hepburn and Tracy and the off-screen relationship of Laurel and Hardy. Their lives, their impressive careers and now their upcoming divorce have always pushed Kiki into the background. But at this junket, that’s all going to change. Eddie will soon be fair game and Kiki will do whatever it takes to get his attention. What results is a weekend capable of generating the kind of buzz Lee wasn’t exactly looking for.
