The film is about Ryan a hotshot broker living in New York City with his shallow girlfriend Cindy. One morning, he is playing golf with the owner of one of the biggest newspaper publishers of New York. He tells Ryan of a huge merger between his company, Simpson Inc., and a large drug corporation. Accordingly, Ryan seizes the opportunity and calls all his clients and informs them of the huge deal that is going to happen and they all place large amounts of money into the merger. However, the next day, Simpson reveals that there is not going to be a merger. Ryan loses most of his own, and much of his clients' money in light of the news. Simpson, then, tells Ryan that he screwed him over because Ryan was sleeping with his wife. Ryan, now near bankrupt, sells his possessions and moves in with Cindy. Ryan tries to get another job at another brokerage, but his license is revoked. Cindy, who works at a small newspaper as an advice columnist, tells him that she is leaving for Brazil with another man. Ryan lies to the editor Page and takes over the column, under Cindy’s name. He makes a real effort and begins giving good advice to the people writing in, and the column turns into a huge hit and Page's newspaper begins to sell more and more across the city. Ryan begins to develop feelings for Page, feelings which turn out to be mutual. However, things didn't go so well for Cindy, and she comes back into town. Simpson, who now wants Cindy's column for his own paper, is interested in buying. She moves to Simpson's company, but she fails to give the compassionate advice that Ryan was offering, and soon Simpson's stock plummets. In the end, Ryan and Page are engaged, and Ryan has since become a successful columnist in his own right. This movie is rated R for language and sexual content.
