Brian and Jenny
At the beginning of this movie, Jenny is a chef working in a restaurant. She is a positive and uplifting person that always looks for the good in every situation. When the film begins, she dreams of someday owning a restaurant and hopes that someday her dream will come true. With her uplifting attitude she knows that someday that dream will come true. Always brimming with optimism, she is an encouragement to everyone around her. When she first sees the house, she sees it as the most beautiful house ever and immediately begins working on big and exciting plans for the future of the house.
Brian, on the other hand, is the exact opposite of Jenny. A big business man, Brian is solely devoted to his work at the start of the film. He doesn't think much for other people or their feelings. He doesn't invest much time in relationships; instead he chooses to put his mind to his work and continue to become one of the greatest business moguls of all time. To Brian, the world is about money, not relationships. He can also be quite a pessimist, and has very different opinions about the house. While Jenny sees a plan and a future for the house, Brian sees it as a simple piece of run-down property.
One day, Jenny receives a call from an attorney and comes to find that she has received an inheritance, an old house in the country. She is initially shocked and doesn't quite know what to do with this new revelation. As more details about the situation are revealed, she comes to find that she doesn't own this house alone. She meets Brian Elliot, the businessman and comes to find that they both are entitled to half the house. While they initially do not want to have to share this house together, they reluctantly decided to drive out to the house and see what kind of state it's in.
When they arrive at the house, Jenny begins to get big ideas about the house. She realizes that this house could help her dream of owning a restaurant someday. While she may not be able to do that out there, they could fix up the house with some work and make it into a cozy bed and breakfast. While Jenny gets excited by the idea, Brian is less enthused. After quickly evaluating the house and determining that it is run-down and not worth his time, Brian wants to flip the house, make a profit, and get out of there. However, he encounters trouble when Jenny refuses to sell her half of the house. Because they both needed to agree in order to sell the house, Jenny offers to buy the house from Brian. Unfortunately, Jenny realizes this is impossible, as she doesn't have the money to buy out his half. Because neither one is willing to give, it is eventually decided that they will keep the house and fix it up.
Jenny and Brian's relationship initially begins as nothing more than a business relationship. They both were given a half of this house, and they are stuck with each other to decide what to do with it. Tempers flare at first as they get into argument after argument and disagree about what to do with various areas of the house. While they start off on the wrong foot, they eventually begin to become friends and form a relationship that is deeper than simply business partners. As they spend more time fixing areas of the house, like the plumbing, the interior, and the exterior, they realize that something is being created much more beautiful than the house restoration "ÌÕ They're falling in love! They soon find that it's not so hard to be around each other to make repairs to the house. In fact, they're enjoying their time together and want it to continue.
