In high school, Matt and Ryan were best friends. More than friends, actually. But in the ensuing ten years, they've lost contact. So when Matt receives an invitation to Ryan's wedding he's surprised - especially that Ryan is marrying a woman! Matt interrupts his ideal alternative lifestyle to return to his hometown. He plans to rescue his former love from whatever "she-devil" has trapped him into this huge mistake. On the other hand, Ryan's perky fiancé Alex takes quite the liking to Matt. Is she very cunning, disarmingly ditsy, completely adorable - or all three? As Matt tries to rekindle the old flame, Ryan is intent on putting out any sparks. Ryan dismisses their old romance as just a high school thing, but Matt realizes Ryan may still be the love of his life. All the while, Matt must deal with "his new best friend" Alex, the two families, and a hometown he thought he'd left entirely in the past.

This was enjoyable, if not exactly a "feature" - it looked like it was shot for TV (especially the toaster graphics for the opening credits!). I thought the script was good, but the direction was very uninteresting and static (C. Jay Cox, whose script for "Latter Days" wasn't this strong but who did well with "Sweet Home Alabama", fumbled the ball behind the camera). The acting was uniformly strong among the supporting cast and two of the three leads were quite good. Pleasant surprise? Tori Spelling was among those two. She didn't play too broad and achieved some real moments of emotional connection to her character that made you feel for Alex.
In the end, it's the small things that work best in this movie - the little human moments between characters outside of the craziness a romantic comedies conventions demand. The script could have used a polish, but overall this is an enjoyable movie that I'd be happy to catch on cable again in the future.
