A single and freewheeling travel writer finds that adapting to the nine-to-five lifestyle isn't as easy as it looks when her ailing father hires her to take control of his successful bridal magazine in this marriage-minded comedy starring Heather Graham, David Sutcliffe, Sandra Oh, and Taye Diggs. Upon returning to her hometown to once again be a bridesmaid in yet another wedding, jet-lagged, gin-soaked travel writer Pippa McGee (Graham) soon learns that her tyrannical publishing magnate father has been hospitalized after suffering a serious heart attack. As Pippa rushes to his bedside and the ailing mogul asks her to take editorial control of one of his most popular magazines, her excitement soon turns sour upon learning that the magazine in question is not a political or travel magazine, but the one and only Wedding Bells monthly. Determined to succeed despite the constant reminders of just how single she truly is, Pippa is horrified to learn that the man her father has chosen as her publishing mentor is the same man that she drunkenly came on to at her close friend's recent wedding.

      What's Cake Got to Do with It

      Heather Graham has had a career that seems to be in a skater's death spiral. It's going nowhere fast. And it keeps going down. This is another of those Women are the New Men movies. Only this one tries to convince women to become the old women. The pink bridesmaid dress on the cover is certainly indicative of that. There are other "known" stars in this. Sandra Oh, Taye Diggs and Cheryl Hines. But this is Heather's piece of Cake Icing. And it would seem that even wedding cake icing can go bad. The movie starts out well. She's running with the bulls and then sky diving out of a plane and showing up extremely late for Sarah Chalke's wedding. (The Scrubs' star makes minimal appearences in the film.) After that it's about editing a Bridal Magazine. And lots of miscommunication. Crash a wedding and eat some real wedding cake. It will be far more satisfying.

      She said it is one of her favorite movies. It has some funny parts. Total chick flick.
