Kate is working on a career at Mercer Advertising but is passed up for promotion because she's 'not stable enough', still being single and having no ties to the company. A story is made up about her being engaged to Nick, a guy whom she just met at a friend's wedding, and all seems to work out well for Kate. She even gets the attention of a colleague she had always wanted, but events soon take a dramatic turn, forcing her to 'present' her alleged fiance to her boss. Written by
When Kate meets up with Nick to ask him to help her with her scheme, Nick orders a coke. Neither of them touches it during the whole conversation but in the end, when Nick leaves, the glass is almost empty. See more »
Enjoyable, but little else is a very fair summary of this film. It follows a very basic plot, with no twists but does so in a fun way.
Sitting down to watch this on video my wife and I predicted the plot from the first few minutes, and so could focus on the way the portrayal of the characters happened.
There is actually very little character development in this film, nice girl, good guy, bad guy, boss who ain't so bad by the end. All very stereotyped, but and this is a BIG BUT the flick moves in an altogether enjoyable way. Deep and meaningful it isn't, thought provoking ? again NOPE. Good way to spend a couple of hours on an evening by renting the video when you are not in a mood to go out: certainly.
In to 'Friends' go for this rather than 'Romy and Michelles High School Reunion', which I really felt was a waste on space.
