“One Fine Day” quotes(1996)
Plot – Melanie, a New York architect focused on her career, has to present a few important projects. Jack is a reporter who is trying to expose the corruption of the city administration. They have a common problem: they are separated and have children to look after; she has a son and he has a daughter. The morning of the children's school trip, the parents arrive at the school when the bus has already left. Melanie and Jack find themselves having to face a day full of important commitments and not knowing who to leave the children with. Faced with this emergency, the two strangers try to make the best of a bad lot, throw pungent jokes at each other, move from one taxi to another, chase each other on the phone, have parents and friends involved, make arrangements to look after the kids at different hours, lose the kids, find the kids and let the accusations fly.
