How Do You Know

Preview by Jack Foley

FROM writer/director James L. Brooks, creator of such modern classics as As Good as It Gets, Broadcast News and Terms of Endearment, comes the hilarious and heartfelt new romantic comedy How Do You Know, debuting on Blu-ray and DVD on June 20, from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

Oscar® winner Reese Witherspoon (Best Actress in a Leading Role, 2005; Walk the Line), Owen Wilson (The Wedding Crashers, Meet the Parents) and Paul Rudd (I Love You, Man, Knocked Up) delight as three points of an amusing romantic triangle involving a former star softball player (Witherspoon), a hotshot major league baseball player (Wilson) and a down-on-his luck businessman (Rudd).
