Sarah Jessica Parker,
After the sudden death of her fiancé, Gray Wheeler finds comfort in the company of his friends: lighthearted and comic Sam, hyper-responsible Dennis, and, oddly enough, his old childhood buddy Fritz, an irresponsible playboy whom she'd previously pegged as one of the least reliable people in the world. As secrets about her supposedly perfect fiancé emerge, Gray comes to see new sides of the man she thought she knew, and at the same time, finds herself drawn to the last man she ever expected to fall for.

Although this is not a Kevin Smith film, almost all of Smith's trademark elements can be found in it. There's the "sh" joke (he says "fancy, shmancy"), the number 37, reference to comics and superheroes and references to Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope (1977). See more »
The scene where Gray went back to her storage place to look for a picture of Grady. Her left hand doesn't have the permanent marker drawing on it that Fritz just drew hours before. See more »
I told them all the great things I know about you and there were a lot. I was up there for a while. I didn't tell them everything, though. I left out the complicated stuff, like how it took losing you forever for me to truly find you. And how finding you turned me into someone else entirely. That's not what they came for. People want to hear you were great. Not that were great, but also, sometimes, not so great. They want to know I miss you. Not that while I've been missing you, I've fallen for...

i peruse IMDb every now and so just to check out movies. However, i HAD to join just so I can leave a comment about this movie.
There's only one thing in my 24 years that I'd regret, no exaggeration, but it's wasting my time watching this very movie. The disappointment I have towards this movie even can't compare to the utter disbelief I have to those who gave this movie good ratings or that it was even made (pro: provided jobs, con: wasted resources).
Seriously, what did my college-educated mind missed when I was watching this movie that made me not stand it? I am not going to go into the detail/characters/movie style...etc. you can read the other smart comments that gave this movie awful rating.
I know you're suppose to take life lightly and laugh a lot. But I am convulsing on the floor laughing at the fact other people (who gave it even near 10) take love this "seriously". I'd bet you probably have the hardest time in any kind of stable, loving relationships and this may be the very reason why. I wish I knew what you look like so I can profile you to stay the heck away from me. It's not to be hateful, but it's that your perceptions on life, love and relationships are soooo jaded, borderline stupid and peculiar that we would never get along.
to those even slightly interested in watching this: you are warned. ::smacking you to wake up:::
I give this movie negative infinity.
