Just over a decade ago, Uma Thurman was the sexy face masquerading as radio show host Abby (Janeane Garofalo) to get the guy in The Truth About Cats and Dogs. Now she's getting her own time behind the mic in the upcoming romcom The Accidental Husband. As the story goes, Thurman plays Emma, a relationship-themed radio talk show host who has a loving, conventional fiance (Colin Firth), and a book deal on the way. However, when a fireman's (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) upcoming marriage is derailed by her advice, he schemes up revenge to throw her off-guard -- making them legally married through the wonders of the Internet. While pretending that he doesn't know how this marriage happened, the two begin to fall for each other, which is complicated by Emma's other man.
With the romcom's release being only a few months away, Moviefone now has the HD trailer up for you to enjoy (or you can check out the non-HD version above). It's looking like your typical romantic comedy -- girl finds out what she's missing in life with the guy who oozes charisma -- first she hates him, then she can't help but fall for him. Uma has that same strange, caffeine-high sort of presence she had on Cats and Dogs, Firth is his usual caring British self, and Morgan, well... He's got some sweet romantic charisma, and it just makes me wish that I had better animal mojo the day I was fortunate enough to meet his dog. (Aren't canines the way to sweet, wonderful romance?) You'll also notice Justina Machado (Vanessa Diaz from Six Feet Under) as the fireman's advice-seeking fiance, and Isabella Rossellini's name in the final credits page, although she's sadly missing from the trailer. This could be good, and this could be bad, but here's to hoping that it's better than My Super Ex-Girlfriend.
