Handsome, elegant gentleman Charlie arouses romantic interest with Roxanne when he walks into the wedding planner's shop which she runs with her widowed mother and best friend. Jack, whom Roxanne's ma presents as her groom after a short Paris holiday, instantly arouses mistrust and dislike. When he turns out to be Charlie's quasi-retired father, the unwilling siblings in-law to be decide to team up and prevent the inconvenient, whimsical wedding. But both men surprise Roxanne significantly. Meanwhile she neglects her second chance with former neighbor boy Dylan, now a reputable nature photographer, whom she unfairly blamed for leaving because of her dumb attitude years ago. Written by
Tish is getting married, for the fifth time, if only the groom will show up. Her wedding planners are her friend Roxanne and Roxanne's mother Rose. Rose started Cameo and Cufflink after the death of her husband, and Roxanne is experienced enough she could take over, if necessary.
Tish's wedding does not happen, though the food is there and the reception goes on as planned. Why waste everything? But Tish needs a job and a place to live. Roxanne provides both. She needs help while her mother is gone to Paris for new gowns, and one of the employees was recently let go. Roxanne and Tish running the place themselves is humorous but not disastrous. By the way, Tish may have met husband number six, who seems to be planning a wedding but is too confused to admit it and shows interest in Tish.
Rose comes home with more than gowns. She has met Jack, a wealthy business owner from Seattle (which is nowhere near wherever Rose lives now, by the way). And Jack asked her to marry him, and she said yes--and they want the ceremony to happen before Christmas.
Roxanne is upset for a number of reasons. Her mother hardly knows this man, for one thing, and Roxanne doesn't trust him. And Rose would move to Seattle, leaving Roxanne in charge of the business. Fortunately, Jack's son shows up and he wants to stop the wedding.
So what will happen? Will Rose and Jack go through with it? And what about Tish and her man? What about Roxanne and Jack's son? Wait ... Roxanne's old boyfriend is back. Will he end up with her instead?
This is mostly a comedy, but it is not pure comedy. It has plenty of dramatic moments, enough to make this a comedy-drama. On the other hand, the movie does make us laugh, with a mix of styles that includes physical comedy.
It's nothing that special, but this movie is enjoyable and fun. The acting performances and the writing are good enough for a TV-movie, which this is. Roxanne sure is pretty, and she wears a really hot dress at one of the weddings. I know Joanna from "Reba" and "Privileged", and she seems talented enough.
Although there are a couple of references to premarital sex, they are not explicit, and one scene only implies something happened. This may actually be clean enough for kids to watch. They'll think the couple was kissing or something.
I enjoyed it.
