Editor's NoteThis double feature contains the following two romantic comedies.NINE MONTHS: Samuel Faulkner's (Hugh Grant) fruitful, happy life completely falls apart when long-time girlfriend Rebecca (Julianne Moore) suddenly announces she's pregnant. The thought of fatherhood and responsibility terrifies Samuel -- who just happens to be a child psychologist. Although he does try hard get used to the idea, the months fly by without a change in his attitude -- clearly, he still does not want a baby. So Rebecca, fed-up with his infantile behavior, walks out on him. Miserable at the loss of his girlfriend, Samuel begins to reconsider his life, and eventually realizes that his existence can only be complete if Rebecca -- and their child -- remain a part of it. Now Samuel must find a way to convince Rebecca that he's not only ready for fatherhood, but for marriage as well.THE TRUTH ABOUT CATS & DOGS: In this modern variation of CYRANO DE BERGERAC, Abby (Janeane Garofalo) is a savvy, witty veterinarian who hosts a radio show about pets. She and a caller named Brian (Ben Chaplin) are drawn to each other while talking during her show, but when Brian asks Abby to describe herself, the average-looking woman cannot resist offering a description of her statuesque, gorgeous, and slightly dim-witted neighbor, Noelle (Uma Thurman), instead. Later, Brian makes a surprise visit to the radio station just when Noelle also happens to be there--and naturally thinks she's Abby. Scared of what might happen if Brian learned the truth, Abby asks Noelle to continue the masquerade. To complicate matters more, Brian is such a wonderful guy that both women fall for him. Will Abby--or Noelle--fess up to Brian? And will either one win his heart? Michael Lehman (HEATHERS, AIRHEADS) directed this romantic comedy that tackles friendship, loyalty, matters of the heart, and the things that make people fall in love.
