Rachel is a lawyer. When she was in law school she fell for another student, Dex, who comes from an affluent family, but she was too shy to say anything. When Dex meets her best friend Darcy, who sometimes treats her like dirt, Darcy makes a move on Dex and gets him. Eventually, they get engaged and Darcy asks Rachel to be her Maid of Honor. However, Rachel still has feelings for Dex and still can't say anything. Darcy throws her a birthday party and Dex is there. When she and Dex are alone she blurts out that she had a thing for him in college which surprised him, and after drinking a little they spend the night together. They try to forget the whole thing and agree that it means nothing. Ethan, Rachel's close friend, tells her that she'll spend her entire life regretting that if she does nothing.

User Reviews

I love these actors!
26 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have to say, contrary to many of the reviews, I absolutely loved this movie. Something from this movie resonated with me in a strong way. I thought it was light hearted, fun and highlighted dynamics of relationships and friendships. I thought the acting was fantastic and I am a fan of these actors. Each actor contributes in their own unique style. I would have loved to have been on the set while this was being made. I have watched it several times and something stirs emotions and leaves me feeling good. Give yourself the opportunity to decide for yourself if this movie strikes a cord. The movie ends with a set up for a sequel and I personally would love to see this happen, however, I don't think this is likely to occur based upon the reviews of this movie.
