Story

Developed under the working title, Loosely Based on a True Love Story, the movie is loosely based on the story of author Fyodor Dostoevsky, who dictated his novel, The Gambler, in 30 days in order to pay off a gambling debt -- and in the process, fell in love with his young stenographer. In Alex and Emma, Alex (Luke Wilson) is the author, who must repay a $100,000 debt to the Cuban mafia or face dire consequences. After his laptop is destroyed, he hires Emma (Kate Hudson), a stenographer who talks as much as she writes. As Alex dictates his novel to Emma, the movie cuts away to scenes from the novel, where Adam (Wilson) falls for a series of nannies (all played by Hudson). Eventually life imitates art, and Alex and Emma fall in love.

Widely panned by reviewers (see: Roger Ebert (http://rogerebert.suntimes.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20030620/REVIEWS/306200301/1023), Peter Travers (http://www.rollingstone.com/reviews/movie/_/id/5948601?pageid=rs.ReviewsMovieArchive&pageregion=mainRegion&afl=imdb&rnd=1106429696468&has-player=true&version=6.0.12.872), or a page of reviews at Rotten Tomatoes (http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/alex_and_emma/)), the movie made just over $14 million at the box office.
