Storyline

Rachel is a lawyer. When she was in law school she fell for another student, Dex, who comes from an affluent family, but she was too shy to say anything. When Dex meets her best friend Darcy, who sometimes treats her like dirt, Darcy makes a move on Dex and gets him. Eventually, they get engaged and Darcy asks Rachel to be her Maid of Honor. However, Rachel still has feelings for Dex and still can't say anything. Darcy throws her a birthday party and Dex is there. When she and Dex are alone she blurts out that she had a thing for him in college which surprised him, and after drinking a little they spend the night together. They try to forget the whole thing and agree that it means nothing. Ethan, Rachel's close friend, tells her that she'll spend her entire life regretting that if she does nothing.

Dex: What's wrong?
Rachel: I shouldn't have left.

Great Adaptation of the Book
10 May 2011 | by See all my reviews

Love Emily Giffin, her characters are always so intriguing, and this movie is a great adaptation of her book. And while Dex's is character is somewhat blah in the movie, he is fantastic eye candy. John Krasinski steals the movie with his portrayal of Ethan (the beach scene is laugh out loud hilarious). And for all the girls (and women) who have always taken a back seat because they think they don't deserve better, there is actually a lesson to be learned in this movie. The books, and the movie, are morally conflicting but that does not take away from the enjoyment factor. This is a great girls night out kind of movie and it could be a good date night movie if your guy is okay with the romantic comedy genre (it is certainly does not follow the typical romcom structure).
