Having forsaken the art world for her job as guest-coordinator at a Manhattan hotel and lacking a love life, overly cautious Nora Wilder (Parker Posey) is not living the "good life." It doesn't help that her mother (Gena Rowlands) never misses the chance to point out that Nora is now in her thirties and not in a solid relationship. Adding to her discontent is that her best friend Audrey (Drea de Matteo) just celebrated her fifth wedding anniversary with her adoring husband Mark (Tim Guinee)–but Audrey does question whether she is really in a "perfect marriage." Then Nora meets and falls for well-known French actor Julien (Melvil Poupaud) who asks her to go to France with him. Nora declines, but later, at Audrey's urging, Nora throws caution to the wind, and the two women fly to Paris in search of Julien. It turns out that Nora has lost Julien's phone number and he has a common name, which result in a search involving a more than a few humorous moments.

Dangerous spy Gabriel Shear (John Travolta) and his partner Ginger Knowles (Halle Berry) use the services of master computer hacker Stanley Jobson (Hugh Jackman) for a $9.5 billion electronic bank heist. Gabriel heads up the covert counter-terrorists, the Black Cell, and he wants the money in order to pay for his war against international terrorism. Stanley has been paroled from prison but is forbidden from entering electronics stores after infiltrating the F.B.I.'s surveillance operations. Stanley agrees to help because it will provide the legal fees he needs to see his daughter Holly (Camryn Grimes) and, too late, realizes how dangerous the Black Cell is and that he is simply a pawn in the operation.
