A widower whose book about coping with loss turns him into a best-selling self-help guru, falls for the hotel florist where his seminar is given, only to learn that he hasn't yet truly confronted his wife's passing.
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
Jennifer Aniston plays an older woman, as Nick ask Kate "What's your birthday?", " April 3, 1968". Jennifer's actual birthday is February 11, 1969. See more »
When Kate is sitting in the seats, waiting to present to the group towards the end of the movie, right before she explains the lie about Nick, she orders food from a girl. When she goes to pay she finds the watch Nick left for her, but she never pays for the food. See more »

I suddenly realized I haven't told you how beautiful you look tonight.
Oh, Nick, come on. Don't waste that stuff. Nobody's here. They can't hear you.

Jennifer Aniston is not really her Rachel from Friends but she comes close in Picture Perfect as Cate. I like her in Friends and I think because of that I liked her in this film.
The story is even more predictable than movies as Notting Hill and Addicted to love, but I did like it. It is simple, it makes you feel good, there's no real bad guy or girl, there is some chemistry and we all know it will end very happy.
You can like Aniston here, or may be you don´t because she is too much Rachel. I liked her because she is. Kevin Bacon was a little disappointing in a role that might be too easy for him and you will like Jay Mohr. If you want to feel good and sleep with a nice feeling, you might want to watch this. 6/10.
