Product Description:

A romantically compulsive elementary school teacher (Robert Downey Jr.) meets his match in the form of a sassy museum guide (Molly Ringwald), who allows herself to be seduced--but then wants nothing more to do with him.

Plot Synopsis:

Lady's man Jack Jericho goes through life without a care in the world, seducing one woman after another. Then he meets indifferent museum guide Randy Jensen, who consents to a one-night stand but won't give him her phone number.
