IMDb Plot Summary: Mary Fiore is the wedding planner. She's ambitious, hard-working, extremely organized, and she knows exactly what to do and say to make any wedding a spectacular event. Bt when Mary falls (literally) for a handsome doctor her busy yet uncomplicated life is turned upside down - he's the groom in the biggest wedding of her career! Will she help him walk down the aisle with his internet tycoon girlfriend, or will Mary finally get to be the bride herself? When it comes to love, you can never plan what's going to happen.

A Quick Review: This film is basically a standard Jennifer Lopez romp: low quality but reasonably feel-good fluff. However, this has got to be one of the worst. 
I usually find Matthew McConaughey pretty charming but here he comes off as quite a sleaze, he blatantly cheats on his fiancee constantly but still comes off looking the good guy. What! Really?! 
The whole thing is complete fantasy - but that’s the point I suppose this is a 100% cheesy rom-com. No twists, surprises or even real comedy. It’s pure cheese. And to be honest... a little dull. 
Score: 3.5/10
