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.

Loved this movie
21 March 2012 | by See all my reviews

After seeing the movie, I read to original book to compare the two. I liked the movie version much better than the book! In the book the characters are not likable at all. All seem selfish and self-centered. The movie plot is very believable and you can agonize with Dex as he tries to stay true to his conservative upbringing. The expanding of Ethan's role helps the story and John Krasinski is such a great actor. He was my favorite character in the movie! There are some hilarious scenes and a great love scene. I am wearing out my taped version of the movie and can't wait until my DVD arrives so I can see the directors cut of the movie and the bonus features.
