Peter Sanderson (Steve Martin) is a divorced, straight-laced, uptight attorney
who still loves his ex-wife (Jean Smart) and canít figure out what he did
wrong to make her leave him. However, Peterís trying to move on, and heís
smitten with a brainy, bombshell barrister heís been chatting with on-line.
However, when she comes to his house for their first face to face, she isnít refined,
isnít Ivy League, and isnít even a lawyer. Instead, itís Charlene
(Queen Latifah), a prison escapee whoís proclaiming her innocence and wants Peter to
help clear her name. But Peter wants nothing to do with her, prompting the loud
and shocking Charlene to turn Peterís perfectly ordered life upside down,
jeopardizing his effort to get back with his wife and woo a billion dollar client
(Joan Plowright). In the end, our unlikely pair has the chance to put each
otherís lives on higher groundÖif they donít end up bringing down the house.
