Sandra Bullock and Bradley Cooper star in this off-the-wall comedy about a blind date gone hilariously wrong. As a crossword puzzle creator for the Sacramento Herald, Mary Horowitz (Bullock) talks excessively and considers her pet hamster to be her only true friend. However after her parents set her up on a blind date, Mary falls for a handsome news cameraman by the name of Steve (Cooper). Obsessed with her one-time suitor, Mary begins to follow him on assignments all over the country. Things change dramatically, however, when she goes from pseudo stalker to lead story after becoming an unwitting part of a local disaster.
