Storyline

Two things about Jane: she never says no to her friends (she's been a bridesmaid 27 times and selflessly plans friends' weddings), and she's in love with her boss, George, nurturing dreams of a lovely, romantic wedding of her own. She meets Kevin, a cynical writer who finds her attractive, and that same week her flirtatious younger sister Tess comes to town. Jane silently watches George fall for Tess, a manipulative pretender. Worse, Jane may be called upon to plan their wedding. Meanwhile, Kevin tries to get Jane's attention and has an idea that may advance his career. Can Jane uncork her feelings?

Trivia

A Filipino movie titled "Got 2 Believe," released in February 2002, has almost same story and characters. It tells a story of a wedding coordinator who is "Always the bridesmaid, never the bride." She falls in love with a photographer who does not believe in happy endings. See more »

Goofs

In the scene where the sister is flipping through the newspaper clips, the article text doesn't match the headline (it's some completely unrelated article, with a wedding headline pasted on). See more »

Quotes

Tess: How could you let this happen to me?
[begins reading from newspaper article]
Tess: "If Jane is the prototypical accommodating bridesmaid, then her sister Tess is cast as the overbearing, overindulged bride-to-be who at any moment might start stomping around Manhattan, breathing fire, and swatting planes from the sky."
Jane: I had no idea he was writing an article about me.
Tess: You? He called me Bridezilla! In the New York freaking Journal! I could tear him apart limb from limb!

One of the best examples of bad film writing
6 August 2010 | by See all my reviews

It only took about five seconds for me to know that no man (or at least no straight man) had anything to do with this film creatively. I know it is not meant for straight men, but watching this with my wife was pure agony.

Yes it is predictable, yes it is unoriginal and unfunny, yes the dialogue is stilted and unrealistic, yes it's cliché, but all of that's to be expected. My biggest complaint with this film is the character played by James Marsden.

So this guy who is supposedly into women actually notices she has a collection of dresses?? then he wants to see her try them all on??? of course he has a sad past that comes up, and how does he get cheered up? By shopping???? Oh, and that sad back-story, he was betrayed by his wife so he decides he hates the concept of marriage rather than the woman herself. How about the fact that his life seems to revolve around this up-coming wedding?? And then, after smattering the name of the bride in a popular news paper (that we're supposed to believe would run such a pointless story) -- going as far as calling the bride-to-be "bridezilla", he actually gets invited to another wedding party where the oh-so-predictable scene where the lovers come together takes place.

This has to be one of the best examples of bad film writing I've come across. I can't even recommend this as a date movie because if the female you're with has any sense she'll find it really stupid as well.
