Storyline

Young career woman Samantha 'Sam' Hoyt gets swept off her feet by Benjamin 'Ben' Rosen, who romances her better than anyone before, so she jumps at the offer of becoming his fiancée. If Ben thought a girl's typical obsession with the perfect wedding was testing, she soon proves a particularly bad case; and before he gets used to that, meeting each other's parents complicates things gravely, as Jewish and church wedding traditions don't exactly mix easily. They take their time preparing while living together. Then fate strikes again: the key man from the client of her firm's advertising campaign is Luke Stinson, the perfect guy at college whom she could never date because of a rather serious fall just when they could have kissed. Luke proves still as irresistible, gorgeous, charming, easy-going and simply too sexy for any female not to lust for at first sight, and actually confides in her he asked for her on the campaign because he considers her the one attractive girl who got away. ...

The one that got away
14 December 2008 | by (Greensboro, NC) – See all my reviews

I felt this was a decent attempt for a made-for-TV movie. It wasn't without its faults though. I didn't care much for the constant narrating by the lead, Shannon Elizabeth. I think it is a cheap effect to feel the need to help the audience understand what is going on, when if the script is written well it shouldn't be necessary in the first place. Just a little too cheesy.

I thought the fiancé did a great job of acting. Who can resist the chin dimple - too cute. The "other guy" didn't have to do much but stand there and look hunky. The bride-to-be did okay, but sometimes the delivery of her lines didn't come across very natural. I thought the 50s dream sequence that I guess was supposed to be based on "I love Lucy" was completely out of place and just weird. I think it was supposed to be funny.

True, this is a story that has been done, and redone over and over. But I think there is enough here to make it worth watching. It is a theme that a lot of women (and men) can relate to.
