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

Excellent Date Movie
24 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Not going to lie, this movie totally surpasses expectations. On the surface, it looks like a total chick flick, but it totally delivers for guys too. Lots of laughs and a very realistic and introspective look at coming to terms with the secret lives of the people we love.

Features a brilliant and very likable performance by Kevin Smith as Sam. Relative newcomer Sam Jaeger as Dennis delivers an extremely authentic and sincere performance. Their relationship as best friends offers both witty comic relief and another dimension to the plot. Very enjoyable.

Jennifer Garner is, of course, amazing and beautiful. She gives her character a sense of depth and grace that is really refreshing on screen.

All the boyfriends who get "dragged" to this are going to love it--whether they admit to afterwards or not is a different story.
