Elevator Pitch When a wedding planner breaks the rules and falls for the potential groom she is forced to decide on her career or her heart. Deciding on the former she accepts a proposal from a young man put forward by her father as a suitable candidate for her to marry. Despite being thrown together with her client at a number of pre-wedding events, they are both propelled towards their fate.
Content A lot of time spent during pre-wedding events. Some slightly risque chat between the main characters, particularly when he accidentally breaks the rude bits off a statue. A lot of will they won’t they. No nudity, no sex and actually not much fun.
A View JL pouts seriously, MM smiles a lot, the man with the funny accent mispronounces a bit. But despite the charm of the main players there is not enough of anything to make this film enjoyable. Once more proof that just having beautiful people as the main players will not guarantee success.
