3 stars (R)
Helen Hunt stars and makes her directorial debut in this modest but likable tale of a teacher named April (Hunt) whose life gets complicated. Her immature husband (Matthew Broderick) wants out of the marriage, a sexy new guy (Colin Firth) enters her world, a brassy woman (Bette Midler) shows up and announces she is her birth mother and, oh, she finds out she's pregnant. Lot of story there, but it goes down smoothly. 100 minutes. DVD INFO: Includes a commentary track by Hunt, cast interviews and behind-the-scenes footage.
