Storyline

Handsome, elegant gentleman Charlie arouses romantic interest with Roxanne when he walks into the wedding planner's shop which she runs with her widowed mother and best friend. Jack, whom Roxanne's ma presents as her groom after a short Paris holiday, instantly arouses mistrust and dislike. When he turns out to be Charlie's quasi-retired father, the unwilling siblings in-law to be decide to team up and prevent the inconvenient, whimsical wedding. But both men surprise Roxanne significantly. Meanwhile she neglects her second chance with former neighbor boy Dylan, now a reputable nature photographer, whom she unfairly blamed for leaving because of her dumb attitude years ago.

A very merry watch, dear romcom fans, enjoy!
19 March 2012 | by Amy AdlerSee all my reviews

Roxanne (Joanna Garcia) and her mother, Rose (Helen Shaver) run a wedding shop and planning business in a smaller city. For Roxanne's sister, this has been a blessing since she has been married several times. Finally, one month, Rose takes a vacation in Paris and meets a new love, late in her life. He is Sam (Kenneth Welsh) and they arrive back in town together, with happy news. Roxanne has another wedding to plan and soon. However, the young lady is aghast, for the daughter thinks the mother is rushing things. So does Sam's son Charlie (Luke Perry). Also, a man Roxanne once loved, Dylan, has reappeared in town, upsetting the bridal consultant even more. He was the proverbial boy next door and now he's back and wants to rekindle the flame, even though Roxanne's heart was pulverized. Will Rose decide she needs to get to know Sam better before the wedding? Will Roxanne let Dylan back into her life? This is a very merry little watch for romcom fans, with attractive stars and a nice storyline. Add on good costumes, a lovely setting and a holiday and you have another winner for the genre's fans. If you are one of those, don't tarry, get this very merry flick!
