Single-girl anxiety causes Kat Ellis (Messing) to hire a male escort (Mulroney) to pose as her boyfriend at her sister's wedding. Her plan, an attempt to dupe her ex-fiancé, who dumped her a couple years prior, proves to be her undoing.
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.

They use two models of green Subaru Legacy Outback as a single car. The first showing is a 1998 or 1999 with the hood scoop, but near the end, she is driving the same one throughout the show, along the PCH. But when she arrives at the house on the beach it is a 2000 or newer model, which is a different body style, and clearly no hood scoop. See more »

Why was this movie good? It wasn't supposed to be good. It was supposed to be a piece-of-crap romantic comedy but instead, it's an excellent story in so many complicated, touching, veracious ways. In fact, in coming up with an IMDb score, I tried to think of any one thing that would detract from a perfect movie-watching experience and, can you believe it? I can't.
Who packaged and promoted this film? Were they sleeping during the screenings? From the first second, the quality of story and production was evident. Multi-faceted, varied characters. Nuanced storyline. Fine, fine performances. Beautifully done all around.
Thank you for this happy accident.
