Review

A sweet if ultimately uninvolving story of a Woman With Issues, her obligatory gay best friend, and the couple they look to for guidance — and then, of the old college friend who can’t help but make them all feel slightly inadequate. The good: things are shaken up enough to move our heroine off dead center and get her moving in the right direction. The not-so-good: haven’t we seen this tale a few times already? Sprightly dialogue, especially with the side story of gay best friend’s new love, who turns out to be incompatible with most of the human race, saves the day.
