Directed by Michael Lehmann, the movie explores the relationship between two friends, Abby and Noelle, and their respective romances with a veterinarian, Brian. Abby is a radio talk show host who dispenses advice on pets, but is insecure about her appearance. She has a loyal and loving dog named Valentine, but is hesitant to date due to her self-conscious nature. Noelle is Abby's best friend and a successful photographer, but is plagued by relationship issues with men. When Brian calls Abby's show for advice on his cat, the two begin a series of phone conversations that eventually lead to a date.

However, Abby is afraid to meet Brian in person due to her low self-esteem and sends Noelle in her place. Noelle pretends to be Abby and meets Brian, leading to a hilarious and confusing love triangle between Abby, Noelle, and Brian.
