Formula anyone?
10 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Absolutely, w/out a doubt, one of the most pretentious, idiotic, formulaic, pieces of unadulterated garbage to come from Hollywood in years. This one has everything- the "sultry" Latin dance instructor, the slutty companion, the overbearing mother, and of course, the "confused" woman (A. Gish). As for the fiancé', he is portrayed as the ultimate jerk, idiot, asshole, etc. You are directed towards the conclusion, & inevitable question, "why was she with him in the first place?" This is typical Hollywood- Justify her amoral, cheating, low-life behavior by showing the man she's committed to, as a HUGE mistake! One that she has to dump, just to "find" herself. Be afraid, be very afraid!!!
