Storyline

Rachel is a lawyer. When she was in law school she fell for another student, Dex, who comes from an affluent family, but she was too shy to say anything. When Dex meets her best friend Darcy, who sometimes treats her like dirt, Darcy makes a move on Dex and gets him. Eventually, they get engaged and Darcy asks Rachel to be her Maid of Honor. However, Rachel still has feelings for Dex and still can't say anything. Darcy throws her a birthday party and Dex is there. When she and Dex are alone she blurts out that she had a thing for him in college which surprised him, and after drinking a little they spend the night together. They try to forget the whole thing and agree that it means nothing. Ethan, Rachel's close friend, tells her that she'll spend her entire life regretting that if she does nothing.

If you like romantic comedies, this one is OK
6 May 2011 | by nancy45See all my reviews

Well, I see that this movie is not getting good reviews, nor is it getting positive comments on the board. It's certainly not going to win any awards, but if you like romantic comedies and if you go knowing that it isn't great cinema, I think you'll enjoy it. It's all pretty predictable, and you'll question the characters' actions at times, but it will all work out just fine and you'll leave feeling just fine. Everyone is pleasant to look at, and there's nice scenery at the Hamptons. I for one am pretty happy with any romantic comedy, and I enjoyed this movie. You might leave your hubby or boyfriend at home - he'll suffer terribly. But it's fun to see alone or with girlfriends.
