    As much as his parents love him, they also want some time for themselves. So, they come up with a weird idea to get him out. They hire a beautiful woman to make him fall for her and get him out of the house.
    On their friend's suggestion they hire Paula (Sarah Jessica Parker), an 'interventionist'. However, her plan won't go as planned. Rather, what she finds out leaves her in need of an intervention herself! she falls in love with him!
    This movie follows the same old formula of two individuals falling in love with each other. And though the same romantic formula is used again, the story seems fresh and every funny scene makes you laugh out loud.
