Business consultant Caryn Briggs (Rachel Boston) is still single at 30, but is in no rush to wed. She's always been skeptical about marriage, thinking the commitment would mean throwing away her future. She has let a string of steady boyfriends get away in favor of her own freedom. When she attends a fundraising event with friends Gregg (Chad Krowchuk) and Stephanie (Ali Liebert), she playfully agrees to have her fortune read at a charity booth run by soothsayer Madame Rue (Stefanie Powers), who ominously predicts Caryn will have an engagement ring by spring, or she'll never marry. Caryn doesn't give much thought to Madame Rue's fortune as she starts a new job with friendly, laid-back boss Tom Halsey (Kirby Morrow), with whom she has a lot in common. But when Stephanie and Gregg's fortunes come true, Caryn worries she might be closer to a ring than she thought from her uptight boyfriend, Bryce (Chris Jacot). With Caryn suddenly very nervous about an impending proposal, Bryce shocks ...Written by
If one word could describe this movie it is "cute". The star (Rachel Boston) is cute. Her co-stars are cute. The actors playing her parents are cute. The plot is cute. Stefanie Powers isn't "cute"; she surpasses mere cuteness and moves into a realm of glamor that is all her own.
Boston plays a successful business consultant who has never been particularly interested in being married. She receives a reading from an exotic medium (Powers) who tells her, "You will receive a ring by spring...or you will never marry." This followed by a break-up with her long-term boyfriend starts her on a voyage of self-discovery that is perplexedly observed by her friends, her parents, her ex-boyfriends and Tom, the good-natured CEO of the company she is currently working for.
Boston is charming as the young woman entertaining questions of romantic destiny and Powers' small but pivotal role as the mysterious Madame Rue rounds out the attractive cast. Really, it's a slight film but perfectly entertaining.
