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. Intrigued, Jack continues to pursue Randy, in the process helping free her alcoholic father from the huge gambling debt he owes the mob.
