Storyline

Joe and Olivia are childhood sweethearts, about to embark on their wedding day. But, the so-called happiest day of their lives is over faster than they anticipated. Olivia doesn't quite make it up the aisle, and Joe is left jilted at the altar. A decade later, Olivia and Joe are walking up the aisle again, but this time it's as bridesmaid and best man. They haven't seen each other since and they have changed. Olivia wears pleated skirts and designs multi-storey carparks; Joe is older, wiser, sexier and married to a Spanish model, Mariana. But all is not as it seems. Will first love get a second chance? Written by L.H. Wong <lhw@sfs.org.sg>

Entertaining Fluff
1 September 2000 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This move is an extremely enjoyable romantic comedy. Its just great when you want a fun movie but don't feel in the mood for something emotionally draining. I think this is worth your time if you can find it. It is just the kind of movie that puts a smile on your face and I always enjoy watching things with future stars of tomorrow.
