Storyline

After the sudden death of her fiancé, Gray Wheeler finds comfort in the company of his friends: lighthearted and comic Sam, hyper-responsible Dennis, and, oddly enough, his old childhood buddy Fritz, an irresponsible playboy whom she'd previously pegged as one of the least reliable people in the world. As secrets about her supposedly perfect fiancé emerge, Gray comes to see new sides of the man she thought she knew, and at the same time, finds herself drawn to the last man she ever expected to fall for. Written by Columbia Pictures

Admit It- You Liked It!
17 February 2007 | by jaddison383See all my reviews

The truth about this movie is that it's simply just good. It's just likable, even though you really don't want it to be. Jennifer Garner did a fine job in her lead role- she is a beautiful and very talented actress. It's not a movie about her, though. This is, at heart, an ensemble film.

And that's part of what makes it great. The supporting cast is all good in their particular roles. Timothy Olyphant, Sam Jaeger, Fiona Shaw all turn in nice and effective performances. The two who really steal the show, though, are Kevin Smith and Juliette Lewis. They make the movie. I can't imagine it without them.

It really is better than you want it to be. The ending is not great- it's definitely not what you really want. However, in a way, that's what the movie is about. Life is not a fairytale or perfection. Life is a journey, with success, loss, heartbreak, and, if you are lucky, true happiness.

Yeah, this is a good movie.
