Storyline

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.

Jennifer Aniston is wonderfully funny & touching in a nice romantic comedy
7 February 2005 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Kate (Jennifer Aniston) is a rising star at a big advertising company. Nevertheless, when she receives no credit for a winning ad, Kate seeks advice. The buzz is that, because she is not married or does not have a family, the company is reluctant to promote her, thinking she might jump ship in the future. Shortly after learning this, Kate attends a wedding and asks Nick, a gentleman she meets there, to play the part of her fiancé for a spell. Now, Kate is taken more seriously when she brings Nick along to company functions. Will there be any promotions or romantic complications in her future? This has got to be one of the best movies Aniston ever made. She is adorable and funny, she looks like a dream, and she handles the serious moments of the film with ease. Jay Mohr turns in a very likable performance as Nick and Kevin Bacon charms the audience in a lesser role. The plot was fun at full speed and the script has many memorable lines. If you are an aficionado of romance films, told with humor, and you love women with beauty, brains, and Buster Keaton's comic timing, don't hesitate to seek out this film while it may be found.
