Storyline

Adam Lewis finds himself unexpectedly stood up at his own wedding. Now, three years later, Adam cannot attend a wedding without becoming ill, much to the dismay of his new girlfriend, Holly. Adam's job is on the line when he is unable to sell the comic strip, "Kreature Korner," to a single newspaper.

Best movie I've seen in a long time!
15 May 2001 | by See all my reviews

Of course, I'm extremely biased due to the fact that my dh's cousins appear in the film. Too bad their names aren't listed on IMDb. They deserve a little credit. Beyond that the movie is worth seeing just because it is a refreshing change from all the gory action films that seem to catch everyone's attention. It is simple, clean and good. Need a laugh? There are many in this film about a man's reluctance to commit after being jilted at the altar. Some of the events in the film are based on true wedding stories - "the crying preacher" and the "reluctant groom." The final wedding takes place in an actual church located in Northern Indiana where one of the "cousins" is the official preacher. In the movie, however, he plays the part of a salesman. Most impressive to me, was the fact that his son trained the cows. Don't miss this one! It's amazingly funny.
