In short order Max the baby arrives, but the marriage continues to deteriorate. Allen, meanwhile, decides to seek out his son's biological mother, only to discover that she is a prostitute (Mira Sorvino). The two form a friendship and when Allen learns that Sorvino's greatest regret was giving up the baby she once had, he vows to find her a good man. Enter a would-be boxer (Michael Rapaport) and the stage is set for a romance in Central Park. This bittersweet comedy marks Allen's 31st outing behind the camera as a director and his most recent effort since completing "BULLETS OVER BROADWAY" in 1994.
