Synopsis by Mark Deming
Two girls play Cupid for their father with unusual results in this light comedy. Tess and Emily Tyler (Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen) are 12-year-old twin sisters whose father, Maxwell Tyler (Tom Amandes), is a wealthy and successful artist. Maxwell's wife (and Tess and Emily's mother) died some time back, and his daughters think their father is lonely and needs a new girlfriend; however, Maxwell hasn't had much luck getting back in the swing of dating. Figuring their father needs some help, Tess and Emily decide to place a personal ad for him -- on a billboard overlooking a busy Los Angeles thoroughfare. Before long, literally hundreds of women are responding to the ad, and Maxwell finds love again. However, Maxwell's agent (Carl Banks) thinks Maxwell's art has been suffering now that he's once again content, and he tries to break up the lovebirds for the sake of his client's career.
