Storyline

After Olly Pickering and his youth friend and dorm mate Murray graduate, Olly, a promising author, gets a contract and advance, which somehow kills his nerve, even about using urinals. Writer's block forces him to move into professionally successful Murray's Soho (London) spare room and take a crappy job as publishing research assistant. Asked as New York trip friend James's London wedding best man, Oly falls in love at the bachelor party. Alas the flirt turns out to be bride Sarah. Olly would graciously walk away, but sassy Murray keeps arranging, resourcefully, for them to meet and in the process gets on with her bitchy sister. Olly's moral reserve is reconsidered when James admits he isn't monogamous. Written by KGF Vissers

Okay, typical romantic comedy
13 March 2007 | by See all my reviews

Unhitched is your typical romantic comedy. Boy meets girl. Flirtation ensues. Will they get together? Of course they will because this is a romantic comedy and they always do in this type of movie. Thankfully, Unhitched has enough fun with the getting to the denouement that it entertains the viewer despite the familiarity. Seth Green is hilarious as the best friend trying to help his bud out. And Stuart Townsend is fine as the bumbling lovable loser who falls for his friend's fiancée. Luckily for Townsend the friend turns out to be a jerk and he really should be with this girl. All in all Unhitched comes across as an enjoyable if not somewhat predictable piece of film. If it weren't for the predictability, I'd have given it a higher rating since it is well acted and written. Its just that we've seen it all before.
