Young career woman Samantha 'Sam' Hoyt gets swept off her feet by Benjamin 'Ben' Rosen, who romances her better than anyone before, so she jumps at the offer of becoming his fiancée. If Ben thought a girl's typical obsession with the perfect wedding was testing, she soon proves a particularly bad case; and before he gets used to that, meeting each other's parents complicates things gravely, as Jewish and church wedding traditions don't exactly mix easily. They take their time preparing while living together. Then fate strikes again: the key man from the client of her firm's advertising campaign is Luke Stinson, the perfect guy at college whom she could never date because of a rather serious fall just when they could have kissed. Luke proves still as irresistible, gorgeous, charming, easy-going and simply too sexy for any female not to lust for at first sight, and actually confides in her he asked for her on the campaign because he considers her the one attractive girl who got away. ...

Immature "Disney TV" acting for a supposed adult character getting married

The female lead talks to the camera like a teenager on a Disney channel show. Giggling stupidly at things that aren't funny, making odd excited facial expressions (and other supposed emotions that look faked here). Talking in a little girl high pitched voice.

Anyway, she's engaged to a "nice" guy, seemingly because he was nice (and that is all the shallow basis she needs for a life-long relationship). He let her do whatever she wanted - the female dream according to Hollywood.

Along comes a guy she had a crush on in the past and Mr nice Guy is suddenly Mr boring and the crush is some inflated dream of a man. In the end she and Mr Nice Guy are back together because the crush was a fake nice guy. Let's be real, he was the male equivalent of self-centred her.

This movie is an example of why the divorce rates will continue being high, people living in fantasies rather than getting married to people they really love. Expecting excitement every day instead of life. Juvenile adults all about themselves and their own wants.

Hardly a movie young women or men should be watching and thinking is romantic.
