The protagonists Mary Haines (Meg Ryan), Sylvie Fowler are best friends and what they are? And the answer is: they are women. So this story tells about Mary, who seems to have it all – a beautiful home, a rich successful husband, an 11 years old daughter and a part-time career as a clothing designer for her father’s venerable clothing company.
Her best friend, Sylvie Fowler (Annette Bening), has another enviable life – a happily single editor of a prominent fashion magazine Cachet.
Other important woman in this movie: Edie Cohen (Debra Messing), also friend of Mary and Sylvie, who figures as a mommy not just for her children, but also for her friends.
And the last is Alex Fisher (Jada Pinkett-Smith) authoress who has an character to tell the things which the people don´t want to hear.
When Mary’s husband enters into an affair with Crystal Allen (Eva Mendes), a sultry ‘spritzer girl’ lurking behind the Saks Fifth Avenue perfume counter, all hell breaks loose. Mary and Sylvie’s relationship is tested to the breaking point while their tight-knit circle of friends, including Edie and Alex, all start to question their own friendships and romantic relationships as well.
