Goofy little love story builds on its own whimsicality until we come to think of the shy, half-bright motel keeper (Steve Zahn) and the traveling saleswoman he becomes infatuated with (Jennifer Aniston) as more than the sum of their parts. Quite an achievement for first-time writer-director Stephen Belber, who gets mildly eccentric perfs from indie paragon Zahn, sitcom queen Aniston, romantic obstacle Woody Harrelson, old-timer Fred Ward, and sympathetic guy James Lao. Could have been a Psycho remake with very little tweaking instead, its a hug-fest (93 min.).
