Two things about Jane: she never says no to her friends (she's been a bridesmaid 27 times and selflessly plans friends' weddings), and she's in love with her boss, George, nurturing dreams of a lovely, romantic wedding of her own. She meets Kevin, a cynical writer who finds her attractive, and that same week her flirtatious younger sister Tess comes to town. Jane silently watches George fall for Tess, a manipulative pretender. Worse, Jane may be called upon to plan their wedding. Meanwhile, Kevin tries to get Jane's attention and has an idea that may advance his career. Can Jane uncork her feelings?

Brian Kerwin, who plays Jane & Tess's Dad, played a character in Grey's Anatomy alongside Katherine Heigl. See more »


When Jane steps outside her friend's engagement party to yell in anger, the shot shows the back of her as she screams facing a dark wall. The shot returns to one of her face as she is yelling, when a cough is heard from the 50th anniversary party going on in a large room where the dark wall once was. The black wall has disappeared and a party of mostly white decorations is now in it's place. Also, the door behind her closes without anyone closing it. (The door behind her when she is looking at the anniversary party is not actually the door that she came out of the club from, it is a door off to the side. The door she comes out of is a push bar door, not a door with a doorknob.) See more »


Casey: [seeing Jane] Ooh, you clean up good. *I* might even be into you.

User Reviews

Katherine Heigl is a find.
24 August 2014 | by rod-bryansSee all my reviews

So the TV channel plays this over and over. I lock in for just a moment. But now I'm hooked. Katherine Heigl is a find. She's the genuine article and brings me back time and time again.

Previous reviewers have found it corny but good god what isn't. Every plot tripping out of the big movie machine is regurgitated pap.

This ground has been played before but Heigl lifts it above the norm. She's heartfelt, sexy and acts the strong supporting cast off the screen.

Give it space and let it just flow over you. Man up and enjoy it for what it is.

The good guys will love this.

Solid plot, strong performances, and Heigl. I'm sold.
