Product Description

Friends and family convene at a beach house for the wedding of Lila (Paquin) and Tom (Duhamel). But things don't go swimmingly, mainly because of one thing that Lila and her maid of honor, Laura (Holmes), have in common - Tom, the groom. Laura and Tom were an item before Lila came along and nobody seems able to forget that. With very few successful marriages to look up to, and friends that she's not sure she can trust, will Lila be able to go through with the wedding?

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb acting, gripping story 25 May 2013
Format:DVD
This is not a rom com as such; it's a very psychological snapshot of a group of friends (amazing cast!) who are dealing with their own temptations and insecurities as they stumble towards the wedding. I was gripped throughout as slivers of revealing information is slipped into natural humanistic scenes; an enjoyable watch from start to finish! Can't believe it's so cheap here for what I felt was an excellent film, a rare intellectual gem in the genre.

Did not like the way it was shot. Far more depressing than was expecting.

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of time 5 Jun 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Watched this through to the end thinking it must get better but it didn't. Not really sure what the plot was or the point of the story and I definitely wouldn't recommend it to anyone

3.0 out of 5 stars An interesting failure. 28 April 2014
By Adrian Drew TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
A rather clumsy script does not allow the talented young actors to shine. The tired plot - embellished with allusions to Romantic poets - never achieves what it's author & director are aiming for either. It's all pleasant enough but it doesn't holds your attention or allows you to take much interest in the decidedly tiresome group of characters. Cursed with some of the worse costume design I've seen for quite a while (post-modern irony?) - and a plodding music score - at least the cinematography is first rate. The ending seems a little trite to say the least and I can only hope the novel it's all based on works better. The film had garnered with one of the worse scores I've ever seen on Rotten Tomatoes website (15% for 33 reviewers) but I honestly think that's being a little unfair. It has its moments! However don't expect a masterpiece as this movie sure ain't one!
I want to rate it 2 1/2 stars!

3.0 out of 5 stars Did not like it at all... 27 Aug 2013
Format:DVD
It was very boring and Katie Holmes has been cr*ap to be honest. I expected something more lifting from her. I overestimated her acting. The rest of the cast was good. Did not like it at all...

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Plot 17 May 2013
Format:DVD
Although a little confusing at times this film had an interesting plot which left you wondering who would end up with who! Easy enough to watch with the right outcome in the end.

3.0 out of 5 stars a good cast ........................ 19 April 2014
Format:DVD
An odd mix but with a cool cast. Anna Paquin comes out the worst as a spoilt brat and Bergan is proper wasted. Josh Duchmel doesnt fair better but the rest are a good mix with a nice meaty role for Katie Holmes. Its all takes place over 1 night and some scenes seem really slow
