Review

Our Score
Patrick Dempsey (with his career on the up thanks to TV's Grey's Anatomy) stars in this routine, and rather daftly titled, romantic comedy. He plays Tom, a ladies' man whose best friend is the lovely Hannah (Michelle Monaghan). When she's sent away to Scotland for a six-week business trip, Tom realises that she's also the woman of his dreams. His plans for the future are scuppered when Hannah returns, and reveals her engagement to hunky Scotsman Colin (Kevin McKidd). She asks Tom to be her maid of honour, a role he accepts - but only in order to woo and win her for himself. Can he compete, though, with a husband-to-be who is actually a laird, complete with his own castle? The film boasts decent performances from an amiable cast, but they deserve rather better material to work with than this slog through overly familiar territory.

Summary

A single man realises he is in love with his best friend, but has never done anything about it out of a fear of commitment. Everything changes when she returns from a business trip to Scotland with a new fiance in tow, leaving him determined to make sure the wedding does not go ahead. Romantic comedy, starring Patrick Dempsey, Michelle Monaghan and Kevin McKidd.
