They finish each other's sentences, dance like Fred and Ginger, and share the same downtown loft--the perfect couple? Not exactly. Gray and Sam, are a sister and brother so compatible and inseparable that people actually assume they are dating. Mortified, they both agree they must branch out and start searching for love. He'll look for a guy for her and she'll look for a gal for him.
A recently paroled ex-con who has trouble adjusting to the wacky normalcy of life outside of prison. He has spent the last three years behind bars after getting caught committing a crime and taking the rap for his much more dangerous pal.
After eight years globetrotting as a travel writer, a family emergency puts Pippa McGee in the editor's chair at Wedding Bells, the magazine she'd be least-likely to read. She's a self-described slut who doesn't see the value of marriage much less the point of weddings and wedding magazines. For her first issue, she tries edgy and iconoclastic. Can she pull it off? Meanwhile, the gulf between herself and her father impedes her work and her personal life, and her mistrust of commitment is tested by her involvement with a photographer named Hemingway and her interactions with Ian, her father's second-in-command. Is there a Mr. Darcy for this Miss Bennett, a Benedict for this Beatrice? Written by

When Pippa reads her letter to the bartender, he comments that one of her sentences is a run-on. While slightly verbose, it is not in fact a run-on sentence. Her grammar is correct. See more »

There are far too few romantic comedies out there. Cake sure hit the spot. I could watch it over and over and over!! I saw a screening of this film in LA. The story wasn't all that original, but I found myself laughing the whole way through. The cast was tons of fun. Heather Graham is adorable, and she does a great job in this role. And Taye Diggs was yummy as usual. In general the performances were all very layered and a lot deeper than what I expected from a romantic comedy. The direction was more artful than most. It was shot beautifully. Anyway, bottom line is that I wish the script had been a bit stronger but it was a fun ride anyway. I can't wait for this to be in theaters!!
