All About Bob (Alles Bob)

All About Bob

When push comes to shove, it's all about love.
All About Bob is a love story about two people, a young man and a woman with three children, who should not, and almost cannot, but do end up falling in love. It'a a brilliant example of the power of love overcoming the age gap, conventions and the lovers' own personal inhibitions. Bob loves life and lives for the moment. A modern-day Casanova, he is incredibly charming, warm and, a habitual liar, can talk his way out of - or into - anything. Barbara takes life very seriously. She is divorced, a single mother with three children, and is concentrating on her career in a bank. She has been hurt too many times before and has decided that she does not want to have anything to do with men. She is determined to make her life run the way she has planned it and Bob is the last thing she wants or needs at the moment.
