QUICK TAKE:
Romantic Comedy: A lawyer discovers that she's attracted to her best friend's fiancÚ -- with whom she attended law school -- and vice-versa.
PLOT:
30-year-old lawyer Rachel (GINNIFER GOODWIN) and her best gal-pal Darcy (KATE HUDSON) have been best friends forever, even if the latter always dominates the former. That's especially true now that Darcy is about to marry Dex (COLIN EGGLESFIELD), another lawyer who went to law school with Rachel, which is how he and Darcy met.

Rachel isn't dating anyone, and thus Darcy thinks she should bed Dex's wild friend Marcus (STEVE HOWEY). That amuses Rachel's platonic writer friend Ethan (JOHN KRASINSKI) who now regrets what he thought was a one-night stand with Claire (ASHLEY WILIAMS), especially since she's now enthusiastically latched onto him.

On the night of Rachel's birthday, she and Dex end up the last ones at the party. After learning that they secretly had feelings for each other back in law school, the two end up making out and then sleeping together. The next day, they feel awful and try to hide the truth from Darcy, a point complicated by all of them, along with Marcus, Claire and Ethan, vacationing together at the Hamptons.

From that point on, and while still trying to keep their fling secret from everyone else as the wedding quickly approaches, Rachel and Dex must decide how they really feel about each other and whether their attraction is worth ruining a marriage and long-standing friendship.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
