In Return to Me, Duchovny plays Bob, a construction worker whose wife is killed in a car accident. Her organs are donated for transplant, and the heart goes to Minnie Driver, a young waitress and artist. (By the way, do they really carry human hearts around in an ice chest?)
A year later, Bob meets Driver and they start dating - not knowing that she got his late wife's heart. When Driver discovers this fact, however, she worries that it will end their relationship.
The premise of Return to Me seemed a little far-fetched. Also, the film wasn't particularly thrilling, and the plot was fairly predictable. On the other hand, the actors were capable, and some laughable comic scenes added to the film's flavor. Also, some supporting characters, such as Driver's friends and her grandfather, are more interesting that the lead characters. However, Return to Me didn't strike me as spectacular. I'd see this one at matinee price.
Hey, I've got a great sequel idea, though. Return to Me 2: Duchovny dumps Driver for a woman who got his wife's kidneys, and Driver starts dating the guy who got the liver.
