  • The best thing about a movie as silly as this is that it makes such modest demands on your attention. As the story unfolded with all the energy of California in a Stage 3 alert, I staved off brain death by trying to imagine an alternate version.

  • At its best when it employs the conventions of romantic comedies to satirize them through the eyes of an anti-romantic wedding planner. show more

  • The film's greatest flaw is its miscast leads, who conjure up zero dewy-eyed, wish-fulfillment magic. show more
