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.

This film does not deserve a full review, so I will express my opinion by way of a few bullet points:
Predictable and banal. - Dialogue and script could have been written by anyone who is half literate. - Nothing new, retreads old ground but poorly. - Gushy and silly without being charming or funny to redeem it. - A waste of 85 minutes.
Please watch something like "Love Actually" if you want a romantic movie with Colin Firth in it. Even the mediocre "My Super Ex-Girlfriend" has more going for it than this dud. Uma Thurman can be funny with the right script, but no one could have saved this trash.
