This movie is a bit too long. It is listed at 108 minutes, so 48 minutes longer than an hour. It could have told the same story in 90 minutes. That is to say that it is a bit slow in spots and some editing would have helped it. To be fair, it has its humorous moments. In one scene a character is taking his time about deciding on riding in a taxi, and the big and burly rude NY cab driver says, “In or out ******?” The man replies, “You could use a hug, buddy!”
The premise is basically that Dex (Colin Egglesfield) is engaged to Darcy (Kate Hudson) but begins to realize he still has feelings for her best friend Rachel (Ginnifer Goodwin), whom he liked in college although he never told her. She liked him too and never let him know either. The complications soon begin to grow when they have an affair. It truly becomes a big screen soap opera. I knew it was a chick flick but when I looked around at the screening audience I attended the movie with and realized I was the only male, then I really knew it!
Unfortunately for families, there are some frank sexual remarks, implied sex between unmarried couples with sexual moans and noises, and very strong language. There is also a scene of a man with a marijuana cigarette and he goes outside with a woman to try it out. For these reasons, we are unable to award our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal to this movie.
