This is a real gem, especially if you're an Albert Brooks fan, but even if you're not. It's just a charming film about a middle-aged guy tracing all his women problems back to his mother, and moving in with her temporarily to try and figure things out. Brooks is his usual acerbic, dry, dead-pan self (but not in the Woody Allen way that you despise Mikey - give this one a go! It even has Rob Morrow!), and the interaction between him and Debbie Reynolds is priceless. A very underrated fave of mine.

Actually, I'm a big Albert Brooks fan (ever since Finding Nemo)...

I may give it a go (pass it off as a "Couple movie" next time the missus wants to rent a film)...

Review pending!
