      Eleven articulate people work through affairs of the heart in L.A. Paul produces Hannah's TV cooking show, and they must move beyond gentle barbs when she wants to know about an affair of his years ago. Mark is dying of AIDS, and his mother comes to his bedside: they must talk truthfully. Men have scalded Meredith so she rebuffs Trent's charm, but he persists. The trendy, prolix Joan tries to pull the solitary Keenan into her orbit: why is he reluctant? An adulterous couple meet at hotels for evening sex, but she is unwilling for the relationship to grow. Hugh tells tall tales, usually tragic, to women in bars. By the week's end, their parallel stories converge.

  Originally titled 'Dancing About Architecture'. The movie still contains the line from which this title was taken: "Talking about music is like dancing about architecture."

  The film contains spoilers for Piège à minuit, Citizen Kane, Psychose and Soudain l'été dernier.

  Chris Botti was asked to play several songs for the movie.

  Also contains a spoiler for Soudain l'été dernier.

  The house Jon Stewart's character lives in is the same house used for Tim Allens character in Galaxy Quest and Colin Firth's character in La vérité nue. It is known as ''Case Study House #22, aka Stahl House'' and is in the Hollywood Hills section of Los Angeles.

  Most of John Barry's score was replaced with a new score by composer Christopher Young. Barry's credit on the film was retained, however, and a CD was released with Barry's largely unused score.
