New York columnist Ike Graham elaborates, for once without full fact checking, the story he heard from a bar mate of Maryland small town girl Maggie Carpenter, who left several grooms at the altar, taking off without warning or serious reason. Fearing a legal case from Maggie, Ike's editor and ex Ellie fires him. Staff buddy Fisher cues Ike to seek his job back (or earn another) by attempting to prove the alleged inaccuracies and/or writing a priceless follow-up piece. So his sports-car heads for her home Hale, where she runs a garage and designs glassware. His charms and journalistic nose get everyone to open up and reveal her embarrassing past before she can swear people to silence, from her three dumped grooms and family to her overconfident present groom, high school coach Bob Kelly. In the process, Maggie finds hating him as hard as tempting, while Ike develops a strange appreciation for the maverick, until even Bob sees reason to get jealous.Written by
During the lobster dinner scene, Bob leans over to kiss Maggie with his napkin already stuck into his shirt collar but seconds later he's seen tucking the napkin in. See more »

Look, I guarantee there'll be tough times. I guarantee that at some point, one or both of us is gonna want to get out of this thing. But I also guarantee that if I don't ask you to be mine, I'll regret it for the rest of my life, because I know, in my heart, you're the only one for me.

The titles are reformatted for the VHS version because the print was changed from a widescreen print to a standard one. the titles, which originally ran across the entire bottom of the screen in one line are now in the center of the screen in two lines, which somewhat ruins the cinematography of the opening shots because it is now the center of attention as opposed to the background.

I was ecstatic, looking forward to seeing this film, and I was ecstatic after it. The best part is that they pulled off the love story without sex, unlike (to quote David Letterman) "the cute little movie about the hooker." So, it was predictable. I thought it was very funny, wonderfully romantic and the best movie that I have seen this summer. Go see it. It's worth it.
