Summary

Romantic comedy starring Jennifer Lopez and Matthew McConaughey. Mary Fiore is one of San Francisco's top wedding planners, organising the nuptials for a host of wealthy clients. When she is saved from the path of a runaway truck by a dashing young doctor, romance looks to be blooming for the girl who usually arranges happiness for other people. But Mary and the doctor have a mutual acquaintance who might have something to say on the matter.

Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

Jennifer Lopez strays into Julia Roberts territory here with another romantic comedy that explores the rocky road to matrimony and true love. Lopez plays a wedding organiser whose father seems intent on marrying her off to a childhood friend and who spends her free time playing Scrabble. Charged with arranging the nuptials for wealthy Bridgette Wilson-Sampras, Lopez commits the cardinal sin of falling for the groom-to-be, Matthew McConaughey. The star makes a slightly implausible spinster, in her stunning Gucci wardrobe and all-weather lip gloss. McConaughey is far more believable as the doctor who saves her from a nasty accident, falls in love, and then faces a dilemma over the two women. It's all very predictable, but there's something comforting about that.
