Quite entertaining.
30 June 2006 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

Wit, comedy, romance...if I have to sum it up in very few words, that will be what I want to say of this movie. This was shown on the cable and so that is how I learned of it.

Two childhood sweethearts are being divided over a long-lost engagement ring and eventually moving on setting up their own families. Years later, the woman's daughter (Patricia Heaton as Sara) and the guy's nephew realises their affection for each other is hindered by that engagement ring.

I have to say Sara's actual boyfriend Brian who is the one being lost in what is going on with the two families when they are all having lunch together. All that misunderstandings came back during the lunch and it's a little comical at times seeing how the different people reacting to it. So when Sara thought her mother had not patched up with her childhood sweetheart, it happened and one surprise event came up of all these as well. Though Brian had enough of what is going on, it quite ended the way I wanted. One have to watch to get the idea.

Trying to look for some fun and laughs and a little of romance at the same time? Then this is recommended.
