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.

Great movie!
15 July 2012 | by wal777See all my reviews

I love this movie because it rewards the unlikely hero, which is Rachel. The prettiest girl doesn't always get the guy. It is funny, smart, has a bit of drama and romance. Love it, love it, love it. A must see movie. For sure! All the actors are wonderful, good casting. And if it was actually filmed in New York, it was beautiful, I am glad it did not have a lot of profanity. The guy that plays Dex was new to me, but he was perfect for this role, handsome and smart looking. I just want to say that the producers and directors did an awesome job! If you watch this movie you will not be disappointed. I don't have much more to say about this movie. My summation says it all, great!
