    • Synopsis
    • Lenny (Woody Allen), a Manhattan sportswriter, is trapped in a bad marriage to highly-strung art dealer but finds solace in his relationship with his adopted young son. Deciding to track down the boy's real mother and expecting to discover a brilliant professional, Lenny is shocked to meet Linda (Mira Sorvino), a ditzy prostitute and porno star who mingles casual vulgarity with disarming innocence. Despite his initial disillusionment, Lenny soon develops a fondness for Linda and decides to play matchmaker, setting her up with a handsome young boxer (Michael Rapaport) who is equally good-hearted and scatterbrained.
