When L.A. sex therapist Dr. Lecia Calhoun writes a self-helpbook called The Big O there's no doubt what she's talking about. But this expert on making the right moves in the bedroom, known to the country as Dr. Love, has to admit to herself that it's been a long time ...
Then she appears with star quarterback Anthony "T" Beals ona late-night talk show. It's clear this man knows what O standsfor. After all, he got caught with a working girl -- on film! But that's not the worst of his problems. When Lecia tells him he's got issues and his wife should dump him, he really lets loose on nationaltelevision. Then T comes up with some harebrained plan to solve his marital woes -- involving Dr. Love's help. Before she can blink, Lecia is on a whirlwind cross-countryadventure with T ... who teaches her how to move from the sidelines to the playing field -- and demand more for herself. Soon everyone wants to know what is going on with Dr. Love and T Beals.
Perrin (Tell Me You Love Me; Say You Need Me; etc.) brings together two very different people in search of the very same thing. Gynecologist turned sex therapist Lecia Calhoun, aka Dr. Love, is reveling in the success of her new book, The Big O, "a lighthearted but factual look at women's orgasms and how to achieve them," even if she's having trouble practicing what she preaches. NFL quarterback Anthony Beals, aka T, is living in a nightmare ever since that compromising photo of him and a hooker hit the tabloids and his brand-new wife sued for divorce. Their paths cross on Jay Leno's show Anthony's there to proclaim his innocence; Lecia's there to flog her book and sparks fly when T accuses Lecia, who once ran into his estranged wife, of messing up their marriage. Will Anthony clear his name? Will Lecia get her mojo back? Poor them they just need a little TLC. And they'll find it on a road trip to New Orleans and Kansas as they search for Anthony's wife, who was never who she seemed to be and who has suddenly gone missing. A little suspense, a soup on of romance and a lot of unnecessary dialogue and exposition later, the happy ending comes as it should in this predictable but fun diversion.
