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>

plain boring
6 March 2006 | by awesom-o4000See all my reviews

I'm not proud to say I just watched this awful piece of crap. I'm a lazy person, thats why i didn't turn it off.

The plot is a copy of what you have seen all to many times, it's so predictable it could make a swiss watch jealous. The acting is nothing special, verging on overacting in some places. A lot of the situations in the movie are completely non-believable, the characters do not develop, and if there even was an attempt to make characters that can be related to, it failed.

To say something positive, the pace of the movie is OK so if you are forced to watch it or you put it on by accident, know that it will actually end.

Bottom line is there's not a single memorable moment in this film, but if you hate yourself and feel like some mortification of the mind is in order then go ahead and rent it
