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

Quotes

Maureen Monette: I'm really, really so sorry about all this. You could've just loved him, and missed him, and never known.
Gray: Him. Never known him. You know I just remembered something recently. About a year ago he and I spent a day on the river. He fished and I read. It was one of those perfect days. We were on our way home and he said he had something to tell me. I said "Is it going to make me happier or less happy?" He said "Less happy." I said... "Then don't tell me."

Awesome Film - Light & Funny!
16 January 2007 | by dark_godess24See all my reviews

Despite being quite predictable, "Catch & Release" manages to be one of the most enjoyable films so far this year. It is by no means amazing, but it will no doubt ensure that you leave the theaters with a smile on your face.

Jennifer Garner is perfectly cast as Grey, a woman who loose her fiancé just days before the wedding. As she grieves, she learns several surprising facts regarding her old lover's past - all of which will keep you entertained. Juliette Lewis and Kevin Smith guest star, both as enjoyable (and sometimes hilarious!) characters, that will keep the audience hooked.

All-in-all, "Catch & Release" is a quick-paced, light-hearted, romantic comedy, which chronicles love, loss, and finding love again. HIGHLY recommended!
