When Molly is talking with her three friends early in the movie while wearing the bridesmaids dress, the girl in the red shirt sits down and crosses her legs. When the camera next focuses on her, her legs are uncrossed, then they're crossed again in the next camera shift. See more »


Molly Mahoney: I am not wearing your dead grandmother's engagement ring.
Josh Shiffman: Molly, if we're trying to convince...
Molly Mahoney: You are out of your mind.
Josh Shiffman: Molly. If we're trying to convince your mom and everybody else that we're engaged, an engagement ring is a good place to start.
Molly Mahoney: Fine. But that did not come from Walmart. I do not really think that your grandmother would appreciate me wearing her stunning VVS1 1.75 carat princess cut diamond engagement ring.
Josh Shiffman: Wow.

Fun and entertaining
18 June 2015 | by tiffanyschatzSee all my reviews

I really liked this movie--I had to watch it twice. I originally intended to only watch the first 20 minutes and then save the rest for later, but it got started right away with lots of silly moments, had to go ahead at watch the whole thing. The story was super cute and funny, and poked a lot of fun at real relationships--both with lovers, as well as with friends and parents. Obviously with a rom-com you're expecting to go in a certain direction, but that is part of the deal!! I thought the cast was fantastic, and I'd love to see Aubrey Dollar in more movies. The only drawbacks had to do with suspending your disbelief about time and commitments... and would grown up people really do that?? I feel like in real life the risk would just be too obvious, but that's why we like stories--we can 'experience' things that are a little unrealistic in the name of imagination and fun.
