Storyline

Emma Lloyd has made a career out of her sensible, mature and responsible approach to relationships. She has a hit radio talk show, an impending book deal, and a loving relationship with her fiancé, Richard, a conventional sort-which is precisely what Emma is drawn to. Then Emma finds out that she is already married to a man she's never met before, a result of a misguided prank that leaves her bewildered and very confused. Worse than that, her plans for the future are now threatened. With her wedding just around the corner, Emma must find the mystery man and obtain an annulment. Emma tracks down her "accidental husband" - Patrick, a charming and handsome neighborhood fireman, with a big secret...that he was behind the "accidental" marriage. Unable to fess up, Patrick goes along with the ruse pretending to be just as baffled as Emma. While at first their opposite approaches to life create much tension and chaos, Emma soon starts to admire his carefree passion for life and doubt her own ... Written by Orange

Goofs

When Patrick and Emma are on the top of the building, the wall is apparently as high as their shoulders. But in the scenes where they are talking to each other, the wall is invisible or much to low. See more »

Lackluster

While not the worst film ever, it was definitely not in the least bit thrilling. Maybe I'm jaded, but this sort of storybook 'romance' isn't realistic. Uma's character acting was horrible and for a woman supposedly torn, she didn't pull it off well. Much as I think the fireman is attractive, he went from wedding bells to angry enough to have this thing rigged (is that realistic?) to suddenly drooling over and being in love with Uma's character. Do real men with backbones even act like that? He was a weak character. Colin's acting wasn't too bad, though also fell into what I've seen him do time and again. The plot....was there a real plot? I think my daughter in high school writes better fiction and romance, and her stories aren't romantic.
