Overview
In this often touching and always entertaining romantic comedy, a compulsive womanizer (Robert Downey, Jr.) meets the girl of his dreams (Molly Ringwald), only to find her impervious to his charms. But the smug "pick-up artist" isn't ready to give up without a fight, even if he has to swallow his pride in the process. Co-starring Dennis Hopper, Danny Aiello and Harvey Keitel, and featuring cameo appearances by Vanessa L. Williams and Christine Baranski, this charmer is bound to score...with everyone!
