Storyline

Divorce lawyers Kenton 'Ken' Rhodes (recently moved in from Chicago) and Emily Bennett have a healthy but cynical mistrust of marriage from ample professional experience. They first meet and are attracted at the wedding of Ken's buddy since college, Lawrence 'Larry' and her sister Elisabeth 'Betsy' Showalter. Then they meet again in the divorce court where Ken's wealthy, retired client Martin Harper is expected to be cleaned out over a futile quarrel by her client, Margot 'Marge', Martin's former secretary, after thirty years of marriage and pointless 'mediation'. Which of these three couples will make it? An what about the unethical conflict of interest? Written by KGF Vissers

Nice, another four letter word, accurately describes this pleasant romcom
5 March 2007 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Emily (Teri Polo) goes to the wedding of a close friend. A dedicated divorce lawyer, she doesn't really want to catch the bouquet but it gets tangled up in her hair and dress. She, therefore, meets the gentleman who grabbed the garter, Kenton (Robert Mailhouse). The two exchange a few words and soon take a shine to one another. They decide to leave the reception and go for a walk on the beach. Once there, they exchange brief autobiographies, except career information, and engage in some pretty fervent kisses. The evening ends. A day later, Emily and Kenton meet again, with less zeal. Both arrive at the courtroom and find themselves representing opposing clients in a potentially messy divorce. Horrors! Naturally, they bicker and conclude that ethical complications will keep them from pursuing any personal relationship. But, with such a strong beginning, will they be able to keep their feelings on a strictly professional level? Meanwhile, their clients (Donna Mills and Barry Bostwick) are having second thoughts about divorce. Does anyone care to put a wager on the possible triumph of love, twice over? This is a nice film for those ever-hungry romcom fans. The four principal actors do a fine job, although Mailhouse is a bit smug from time to time. The sets, costumes, production, and direction are also above average. As for the script, most fans of love stories adore a nice, romantic tug of war and this one will not disappoint them. If you are a dedicated watcher of comic tales of affection, try to catch this one on the tube. It will more than satisfy you and make for a contented evening at home.
