Jennifer Lopez, Alex O'Laughlin

Don't expect any surprises in this cute story that seems to go on...and on...and on.... It's very predictable, but it certainly has lots of laughs. J-Lo ("Zoe") and O'Laughlin ("Stan") meet moments after she is artificially inseminated. They fall for each other after a week or two of coincidental meetings, then become an instant couple. Some of the biggest laughs come when Zoe joins a single mom's group. Bizarre, quite ridiculous, not a whole lot of chemistry going on, but not awful. It was sad to see an ANCIENT Linda Lavin play Zoe's grandmother. It made me feel ancient, too - but she was super. Oh, and Stan was a cheese farmer, owning a goat farm, just outside the city. Mmmmhmmmmm.
