Robert, a neurotic, narcissistic Hollywood film editor, breaks up with his long-term girlfriend, Mary, despite still being in love with her, and spends the next 24 hours trying to forget her (aided by drugs, jogging equipment, and a blind date), before realising his mistake and pursuing her anew, in Brooks’s hilariously perceptive and brilliantly performed relationship comedy.
