Storyline

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 <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Sharp, smart and sexy...
4 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was skeptical at the screening of Cake (not my kind of movie, generally) but was pleasantly surprised. Smarter, funnier and sharper than most of the romantic comedies I've seen. Heather Graham gave her best performance since Rollergirl, and Cheryl Hines and Sandra Oh were great--why aren't they in everything? The movie works as a light romantic comedy (the setting--at a bridal magazine--puts us firmly in that genre), but has more substance than the genre generally allows (or even needs...). The characters all felt real--as if they were dealing with actual real-life concerns, but were just more attractive and better dressed than normal people. Moments that would have been lost in the hands of a less skilled and attentive director (Heather Graham running, falling to the ground and muttering that her boobs hurt, Cheryl Hines trying to get sit on a waterbed with a full martini glass complaining it was like cirque de soleil) were priceless. Good fun, great acting, exciting director to watch.
