Running time: 112 mins
Tagline: It’s a thin line between love and friendship

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.

I picked this movie because the previews made it sound hilarious

What I liked the Most? The movie itself

What I liked the Least? The cheating

Review: Is this a finely crafted film that will make you think or change your life? Nope, but it was a really good way to spend a morning snuggling with Bunny. I’m absolutely against cheating but this movie had me laughing and yelling at the TV.

Rachel is an absolute doormat, and brings her misery on herself; Darcy is an obnoxious, selfish, and pretty much a hateful, hateful person throughout the movie;
Dex is an indecisive wimp, who is still submitting to his father; Ethan is as guilty of what he accuses Rachel of as she is and, as a character is intended to be sympathetic.

Spoiler: I still think she landed with the wrong guy, but Darcy got the right one for her.

Recommended to: Someone ready to yell at the TV

Best Quote: “The Hamptons are like a zombie movie directed by Ralph Lauren.”
