Alternate Versions

There are three alternate endings on the DVD.
  • 1. Paul stays at the church after the wedding guests have left. Becky comes back looking for her purse and finds Paul lying on one of the benches. She asks him if he's going to be there all day and he says he isn't. Then she invites him to go for a walk. They stroll together down the streets.
  • 2. After the wedding scene, a montage follows of Paul asking people where Becky is. When he finally gets a lead, he finds Becky as a tour guide atop the Space Needle. This one was not used because preview audiences felt Paul took too long in trying to find her.
  • 3. Same as Space Needle ending, only Paul gets to Becky fairly soon and there is no search montage. After they decide to be together, they go to the elevator and run into Minister Ferris and his family but with less tension this time.

Watch It On The Boring Weekend
6 February 2005 | by Mr_SensitiveSee all my reviews

I somewhat enjoy this film. Though the story is very unoriginal and what you called very predictable movie. Maybe because of its lightness and charming cast that actually saves this movie.

Anyway, there's nothing that you didn't know about the movie or how it is going to end since it is a typical romantic movie but overall this movie can actually make you watch it to the end with its cast of charming Julia Stiles and Selma Blair.

Overall this is just another feel good movie that actually make you feel good, as least for the first viewing and that will disappear from your head the coming week.

Rating: 5/10 (Grade: C-)
