When Harry Met Sally style rom-com about the on-off affair of a basketball official and a married woman who originally meet in Paris which he visits for his father's funeral.     
There's a few lines of dialogue which crack a smile but it's all a mere excuse for Billy Crystal to go through his regular schtick, albeit with a character who isn't as engaging or charming as those he's played in the past, and it isn't helped that all the other characters are upper-class WASP's which a regular cinema audience might have trouble connecting with.
