This is a romantic comedy with funny moments but one which lets the viewer down bigtime
Zach and Abbey have been neighbors forever. Almost as long, Zach has been in love with Abbey, at least since she asked him to join her on the seesaw long ago. Now, they are 27 and Abbey is about to fly away from the roost. A gifted artist, she is heading for NYC. Zach runs an auto mechanic shop and still lives at home with his folks. However, he is stunned by Abbey's potential desertion and makes up his mind to marry her. After setting up a date at a nice restaurant, Zach gets the idea that he may have better luck with his proposal if he asks former girlfriends what his faults are. As he goes from lady to lady, he learns more than he wants to, at times. But, will his acquired knowledge help him make time with Abbey? This is a fun movie for most of the duration. Zach's former girls, including a dominatrix babysitter and a spin-the-bottle alliance, provide mirth in big doses. The actors are attractive and humorous and the production values quite welcoming. However, viewers may be let down toward the end of the film. In romantic comedies, this is a very serious offense. Do take time to find the film if you are a romcom nut. It has some good ideas and fun times, even when it is veering off course.
