Catch and Release

I liked the film Catch and Release more than I expected. A young woman's fiance dies just before her wedding. Her friends are grieving also, but they support her as best they can. It is soon reveled that her fiance has more money than she knew, and was involved with another woman. The story does not follow the typical romantic comedy formula, the characters actually have some dimension. Like The Breakup, I think the marketing for this film is off. This is a drama that looks at loss, coping, expectation and love.

I had seen the prescreening of this at Providence Place. It was a really sweet movie to either see with your girl friends and it was funny enough to have your date enjoy it as well. The only thing I didn't like about it was the "love triangle." I'm not trying to give too much away, but I felt that it was a little cliche-ish. I would say, though, to the guys, bring your Valentine's date to this. You will enjoy it and so won't she.
