Emma Lloyd has made a career out of her sensible, mature and responsible approach to relationships. She has a hit radio talk show, an impending book deal, and a loving relationship with her fiancé, Richard, a conventional sort-which is precisely what Emma is drawn to. Then Emma finds out that she is already married to a man she's never met before, a result of a misguided prank that leaves her bewildered and very confused. Worse than that, her plans for the future are now threatened. With her wedding just around the corner, Emma must find the mystery man and obtain an annulment. Emma tracks down her "accidental husband" - Patrick, a charming and handsome neighborhood fireman, with a big secret...that he was behind the "accidental" marriage. Unable to fess up, Patrick goes along with the ruse pretending to be just as baffled as Emma. While at first their opposite approaches to life create much tension and chaos, Emma soon starts to admire his carefree passion for life and doubt her own ... Written by
When Emma leaves her father's house after breakfast, she opens the door and the window of the car is up. When the shot turns from her father to her you can see on her right side that the window is rolled down a couple of inches. While she walks to the car, she moves across the window and a few seconds later on her left side you can see that the window is rolled down more than halfway. When the shot turns back to her, she is next to the car and the window is up again. See more »
[with a mouth full of sample wedding cake]
This cake is fantastic!
You mix these two together, it tastes just like a ring-ding.
[Patrick shoves a fork of cake in her face]
No. No, no.

While not the worst film ever, it was definitely not in the least bit thrilling. Maybe I'm jaded, but this sort of storybook 'romance' isn't realistic. Uma's character acting was horrible and for a woman supposedly torn, she didn't pull it off well. Much as I think the fireman is attractive, he went from wedding bells to angry enough to have this thing rigged (is that realistic?) to suddenly drooling over and being in love with Uma's character. Do real men with backbones even act like that? He was a weak character. Colin's acting wasn't too bad, though also fell into what I've seen him do time and again. The plot....was there a real plot? I think my daughter in high school writes better fiction and romance, and her stories aren't romantic.
