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. ...

In the great heritage of wedding films, here comes Confessions of An American Bride.
17 January 2007 | by (Mexico City) – See all my reviews

There have been great classics in this sub-genre. Father of the Bride, the original, and its two remakes with the just appropriate Steve Martin. Muriel's Wedding, directed by Hogan, with the great Toni Collette. And My Best Friend's Wedding with Hollywood princess, Julia Roberts. And then this TV movie that has a shining Shannon Elizabeth, that proves the audience a good range of acting.

The film's finest and funniest moments come from the whole crazy rush on the wedding's arrangements. Just shows how a pain in the ass is to get married! The two families becoming relatives now thing, was very funny too.

Shannon Elizabeth and her "fiancée" Eddie McClintock show some sparks and very good chemistry. Good acting and good writing make it up for a predictable, conventional premise in a well-directed film that is so self-aware and not serious that is really a delight of charming and funny moments. A good one.

7/10
