Storyline

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. Written by Columbia Pictures

Quotes

Gray: I think catch and release fisherman are heartless weenies. I think putting a fish through agony for nothing more than your own entertainment is just plain cruel. I think if you're going to torture a living thing if, you're going to make it look into the eyes of its maker, face its own puny little place in the universe, then, for God's sake, have the decency to eat it!

I never thought Jennifer Garner could be so....
9 December 2007 | by (TN) – See all my reviews

dislikable in a movie. I go in expecting some cutesy, feel good movie since it stars Garner, but what we get is a depressing, pointless plot. Garner plays, Grey, a young woman who just lost her fiancé right before the wedding. She can no longer afford rent on her own, so moves in with her fiancé's friends for a while. Her fiancé's best friend, Fritz, comes from California for the funeral, but for some reason that is not explained, ends up staying at the same house which seems like for weeks. Grey first sees Fritz at the wake and catches him banging the help, so what does she do. As soon as he moves in, he makes a play for her and she can't wait to take it to the next level. I take it the fiancé has only been dead a week or two. She finds out that the fiancé kept secrets from her, such as supporting a child in California. The kid and mom show up to add drama, but nothing can really save this script.

Grey is simply gross for sleeping with her finance's friend before he is even cold in the ground.

FINAL VERDICT: Terrible, boring, main character is not likable.
