Storyline

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.

Goofs

Near the end, Darcy goes to Rachel's apartment. She has nothing with her. When we see her storm outside the building, she grabs Marcus' pizza wrapper and walks away. Then the shot switches to her from the back and she has a brown purse, no wrapper. The purse was sitting beside Marcus on the stoop but we don't see her pick it up. See more »

Quotes

Rachel: You're like a shark.
Marcus: That kind of hurts my feelings a little bit. I'm actually a pretty sensitive guy.
Rachel: Oh, really?
Marcus: Once when I was nine years old, I saved the life of a chipmunk.
Rachel: A chipmunk.
Marcus: He fell out of our tree and almost died. He didn't know what to do, he couldn't even move. So I built a tiny little splint for his tiny, broken leg. And I carried him around in a BabyBjörn. And all the kids in my neighborhood, they laughed. They made fun of me, they threw rocks at me, but I didn't care. You...

Good girly fun, entertaining
9 May 2011 | by (CA) – See all my reviews

After reading some negative reviews in some magazine I went to the movie with trepidation. Is it a finely crafted film, with a riveting script? No, but it was a good way to enjoy a Sunday afternoon with a friend.

Kate Hudson, Gennifer Goodwin do a good job making the friendship believable and warm, which could have been difficult considering their different temperaments. Colin Egglesfield is so handsome and those eyes can make you forgive a someway stiff performance. John Krasinski steals the show though, with his spot on delivery of the best lines in the movie.

Be sure to stay until after the credits for a little bonus blip.

Hoping they do the next story, John Krasinski would be fabulous.
