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>

Another great Nisha Ganatra film
12 February 2006 | by See all my reviews

I've been a fan of Nisha Ganatra's since Chutney Popcorn and have been eagerly awaiting her latest film, so I was really glad to get the opportunity to see a screening of Cake. While romantic comedy isn't exactly my favorite genre, I really enjoyed this one. Sometimes a lighthearted, well paced, fun film is just what you need for a little pick me up and Cake is that kind of a film. It was well directed and the whole cast was great. Heather Graham and Taye Diggs were wonderful, but Sandra Oh as Lulu was my favorite. They all had me laughing out loud. This was a really fun and enjoyable film. I've already recommended it to friends; when will it be in a theater near me?
