Synopsis

Tanya Harsin (Brooke Burns) is miserable at her latest job defending Daisy (Nicole Paggi) the daughter of Jim Thompson, a Texas mogul (Gregory Harrison). Tanya has been hired to protect Daisy, who has been receiving death threats weeks before her wedding. Harsin struggles to blend in with the bubbly, girly bridesmaids; this is not her typical assignment. Between the aunt who is depleting the family scholarship fund, the playboy cousin with an inheritance at stake, a very angry business partner, and the groom with a wandering eye — almost everyone at the wedding is a legitimate suspect, and this undercover bridesmaid must not lose control of her mission. But will Tanya manage to protect the bride when she’s distracted by a handsome friend of the groom?

Dove Review

What a delightful and original story! Brooke Burns is terrific as Tanya Harsin, an undercover body guard who is quite adept at fighting and protecting her assigned clients, in this case a young engaged woman named Daisy (Nicole Paggi). Daisy does her best to encourage Tanya to get into the spirit of her upcoming nuptials despite Tanya’s devotion to her job and Daisy’s safety. Daisy has received death threats if she goes through with her wedding.

The characters are nicely developed in this story as Tanya gets to know various people and attempts to put the clues together as to who might want Daisy dead. And despite her dedication to her job, Tanya can’t help but like the bridesmaids and Daisy and a friend of Daisy’s named Jake. Tanya doesn’t like weddings due to something that happened to her at one, but Jake seems to be the one who might help her to forget and forgive.

We are glad to award this movie our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for ages twelve plus due to one utterance of language but parents should consult the content listing. Some parents will be fine with their children eight and up watching the film. This movie is an original in a good way.
