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.

User Review

How can this be any worse?

Rating: 1/10

If you think cheating is awesome, this is the movie for you.

Everyone cheats and everyone ends up happily.

Every little bit of it is predictable too, nothing about it is fun or unique.

There is no moral in this story, there is nothing funny. It's just a bunch of pretty guys and girls cheating on each other without repercussions.

I'm thinking really hard right now about whether anything about it was good, but I can't think of anything...

And why does everyone in these romantic comedies have to be upper-class and from good heritage?

And why is it always set in NYC?

There's really nothing original about this one.

Do not waste 1.5 hours of your life on this!
