Maybe it's guilt or maybe it's love that makes Dorian escort Sally to Lamaze class in one of the most charming scenes in this pleasantly modest romantic comedy (1998). His participation in a vengeful prank involving a helicopter has made Dorian inadvertently responsible for the death of Sally's baby's father—who's also Dorian's stepfather. The fatality also leads Dorian to apply for what turns out to be a more dangerous than demeaning job at the burger place where Sally works. Too dry to be very funny and too contrived to be outrageous, this movie has a tone so unusual it almost seems to have none at all. Directed by Dean Parisot and written by Vince Gilligan (TV's The X-Files); with Luke Wilson, Drew Barrymore, Catherine O'Hara, and Jake Busey.
