Adam's job is on the line when he is unable to sell the comic strip, "Kreature Korner," to a single newspaper.

Despite the fact that he and Jimmy are veritable strangers, and despite his aversion to weddings, Adam succumbs to the arrangement in order to save his job. When Adam and Holly arrive in the small farm town of Grass Creek, Indiana, they discover that Jimmy has told everyone that he and Adam were best friends and roommates in college. And not only is the wedding threatened by the bride's ex-boyfriend, Adam cannot escape the feeling that he is reliving his own nightmare. His wedding phobia begins to rub off on Jimmy, and soon, Adam finds himself ... Written by Anonymous

Not Bad for an independent-film.
5 June 2002 | by (Fort Wayne, IN) – See all my reviews

I will admit that I wouldn't have watched this movie if it hadn't been filmed 80 miles from me (curiosity got me), but it was pretty decent. If it was a big budget movie with big star draw it would have been a hit movie. On the surface, the movie is the same old "guy doesn't want to get married" story line, but how they deal with it in this movie is quite original. The acting was as good as most big budget movies. Much better than I expected out of an independent film. I rated it 7/10 as a regular movie, but if you like originality OR if you live in Indiana it's a must-see.
