After proving his mettle in a trio of comedies with Carl Reiner ('The Jerk,''Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid' and 'The Man With Two Brains'), Steve Martin hooked up with Arthur Hiller for this oddball film about Larry Hubbard, a greeting-card writer who finds his girl in bed with another man, breaks up with her, and proceeds to discover the depths of loneliness.

He eventually finds his fortune by writing a bestselling guide to the lonely guy lifestyle, which ironically makes him an instant chick magnet.
