Rachel (Ginnifer Goodwin) is a talented attorney at a top New York law firm, a generous and loyal friend and, unhappily, still single...as her engaged best friend Darcy (Kate Hudson) is constantly reminding her. But after one drink too many at her 30th birthday party, perpetual good girl Rachel unexpectedly ends up in bed with the guy she's had a crush on since law school, Dex (Colin Egglesfield), who just happens to be Darcy's fiance. When Rachel and Darcy's lifelong friendship collides with true love, it leads to unexpected complications and potentially explosive romantic revelations. Meanwhile, Ethan (John Krasinski), who has been Rachel's constant confidante and sometimes conscience, has been harboring a secret of his own, and Marcus (Steve Howey), an irrepressible womanizer, can't keep his mind out of the gutter or his hands off any girl within reach.
Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
The half-star rating goes to John Krasinski for heroically rising above this vile dung heap of a movie.Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, 05.06.2011
Bonds are tested and feelings hurt, but who really cares? The story takes predictable turns, embraces cliches and dodges all humor.Claudia Puig, USA Today, 05.05.2011
Krasinski is, once again, the best thing about a romantic comedy.Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times, 05.05.2011
The movie is merely a joke-stoked soap opera; its bare-bones plot leaves the characters unrealized and the situations undefined.Richard Brody, New Yorker, 05.08.2011
