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. ...

True confessions? This viewer liked this movie quite bit, being a romcom addict as I am
29 August 2010 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Samantha (Shannon Elizabeth) has dreamed of becoming a bride since childhood. After all, she was the one who donned a miniature wedding gown to go trick-or-treating. But, as she finds out early, sometimes you get a chocolate bar, sometimes you are stuck with an apple. Same goes for romance. Still, Sam is always hopeful and even uses Here Comes the Bride as her telephone ringtone. Finally, she finds Mr. Right, Ben (Eddie McClintock) and begins planning the IDEAL wedding. Everything must be perfect, from the gown to the flowers to the setting. Ben is pretty willing to help with the ordeal, so that's nice. In fact, when they find a good apartment, the couple even moves in together to pool expenses. But, naturally, complications arrive. First, Sam, an ad lady, gets a very important account that will require a good deal of her time. Then, when she finally meets the client, Luke, he turns out to be a gentleman who made googly eyes at her in college and visa versa. As Sam and Ben get deeper into the wedding plans, a few squabbles naturally come their way, resulting in doubts about the whole thing. Also, will Luke stir up trouble, too, for does he still have his eye on Sam? This is really a nice romcom which most females on the planet can appreciate. From infancy, almost, women dream of the day they will walk down the aisle and this flick pays homage to that irresistible fantasy. Ms. Elizabeth and Mr. McClintock make a very fine twosome and the rest of the cast is nice as well. The production looks good, with terrific costumes, settings, and camera work, and the script and direction are lively and true. All in all, if you can confess to being a romcom addict, like me, look for this nice movie at the usual outlets. You will be glad you did.
