The love life of Charlotte is reduced to an endless string of disastrous blind dates, until she meets the perfect man, Kevin. Unfortunately, his merciless mother will do anything to destroy their relationship.
The film marked Jane Fonda's return to the big screen, a hiatus of fifteen years since Stanley & Iris (1990). Fonda had been living in Atlanta, Georgia since the early '90s and planned on staying there for the rest of her life, only making one other movie (Georgia Rule (2007)) during the remainder of the '00s. "I'm not looking to start a new career" said the then-semiretired star, but in late 2010 she announced on her website that she'd changed her mind and was moving back to L.A. Fonda's full-fledged comeback started in 2012, seven years after Monster-in-Law (2005) was released and now she's working constantly.
Charlotte 'Charlie' Cantilini:
Hi, it's Charlie. Leave a message.
Carol, from LA Temp Agency: Hi Charlie, it's Carol from the L.A. Temp Agency. Listen, Dr. Patel's office needs you for tomorrow. Is that ok? Let me know. Bye.
Remy: Morning neighbor.
Charlotte 'Charlie' Cantilini: Heeeyyy...
Charlotte 'Charlie' Cantilini: Help yourself.
Remy: Oh thanks, I was out of everything.
Charlotte 'Charlie' Cantilini: Uch...
When Charlie picks up the dogs she walks, the open front door behind her shows a short front lawn and a busy street; the exterior shot of her running down the front lawn as the dog owner waves goodbye from the door shows a much larger front lawn.
