Storyline

In Los Angeles, the twenty-five years old reckless wolf playboy Ethan Humphries lives in night-clubs scoring women supported by his parents, without working or studying. When his high-school friend Bradley accidentally tells him that his former best friend Jeff will get married in a couple of days, Ethan immediately travels to his hometown. He meets Brad, who is studying in the medical school, and the shy Sean, who is studying psychology, and recalls his glorious high school days, but his friends do not tell the name of the bride to him. While meeting Jeff in a bar in the night, Ethan finds that his fiancée is his former high-school sweetheart Stephanie. After meeting Stephanie, Ethan questions whether he is still in love with she, or only recalling a passion from his past. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Some theories are pretty much rubbish, as are movies, and this film comes close, despite some very attractive performers
12 March 2009 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Ethan (Corey Large, very handsome) bar hops in the Los Angeles area and is, in general, a womanizer. However, he learns that one of his best pals from high school, Brad (Luke Kirby) is about to take the plunge and get married. Wondering how the two of them now have such different agendas, Ethan travels back to his hometown and reconnects with Brad. These gents, along with other old male friends, rehash the past and go out on the town. But, Ethan is slow to learn one important fact. Brad is marrying Ethan's old high school flame, Stephanie (Jennifer O'Dell). When this comes to light, Ethan rushes to meet Steph again and see if she is truly in love with Brad, who has turned into something of a stuffed shirt. Wouldn't she still prefer a handsome, independent guy like Ethan? I watched this film as I was sorting through mail and paying bills and its a good thing, for it has many deficiencies and would hardly do for a "good view for two". However, it is not the fault of the cast, Large, O'Dell, Kirby and others, for these young "lookers" are pretty engaging. Also, the scenery and costuming are good, too, and the film's production values are high. It's downfall is its ending, which is very disappointing and vague, and its "theory". The film's premise is that one should meet the love of one's life before age 24, at least if you are a woman, because after that, the "window" of opportunity starts to shut and becomes smaller with each passing year. Ho, ho, ho, what a great thought! If you adore romantic comedy, especially with good-looking actors, you might want to give this one a try. But, truly, it is not just a theory of mine that few will embrace this one mightily, it is pretty much of a fact.
