Matthew Lickona 2:45 p.m., Dec. 10
Agreeable enough romantic comedy. The complications -- the materialistic young woman behind the Gulden's Mustard advertising campaign ("Number Two ... And That Ain't Bad") invents a fiancé in order to advance herself in the firm -- fall into place without undue force, and Jennifer Aniston (of TV's Friends) works proficiently on a small scale, with fleeting expressions, fiddling with her hair, tugging on her slipping bustline, and Jay Mohr is stomachably sweet as the unrecognized Mr. Right. The color is dull, and the finale duller. Olympia Dukakis, Illeana Douglas, Kevin Bacon, Kevin Dunn; directed by Glenn Gordon Caron. 1997.
