Storyline

After eight years globetrotting as a travel writer, a family emergency puts Pippa McGee in the editor's chair at Wedding Bells, the magazine she'd be least-likely to read. She's a self-described slut who doesn't see the value of marriage much less the point of weddings and wedding magazines. For her first issue, she tries edgy and iconoclastic. Can she pull it off? Meanwhile, the gulf between herself and her father impedes her work and her personal life, and her mistrust of commitment is tested by her involvement with a photographer named Hemingway and her interactions with Ian, her father's second-in-command. Is there a Mr. Darcy for this Miss Bennett, a Benedict for this Beatrice? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Something you've seen before, probably in a better version.
3 April 2008 | by ilonazoomerSee all my reviews

I can't help but wonder why a fairly good actor has to be in such an awful film. Maybe the producers thought that it would lift the movie to a higher level or something. In my opinion, Taye Diggs is brought down a level or two.

I've seen him in much better movies (like Equilibrium, for example - he was GOOD in that one. Really). Heather Graham, on the other hand, I really haven't. Know what to expect - pretty darling Heather in sexy outfits parading across the screen while there is no sign of any talent. Ever. I won't even bother discussing the storyline, it's something you've seen before, only probably better. Notting Hill, Bridget Jones' Diary, need I say more?

I found this film in a 40-DVD-box together with many other low-rated movies, but it was cheap, so I don't really care.

I rate this film a 2 out of 10, because it's nice to watch if you are completely bored out of your mind and have absolutely nothing else to do. But then again, for such occasions there are still better movies to watch.
