Synopsis


Catch and Release
A woman faced with a tragedy discovers the man she loved was not all she imagined him to be in this romantic comedy-drama. Grey (Jennifer Garner) was a beautiful woman who found the man of her dreams in Grady Douglas, and was looking forward to spending the rest of her life with him until he suddenly died only a few days before they were to be married. With her wedding turned into an impromptu funeral, Grey is emotionally devastated but has to deal with the practicalities of her new life alone, including moving out of the house she shared with Grady. Short on cash and in need of emotional support, Grey moves in with two longtime friends, sloppy but philosophical Sam (Kevin Smith) and well-meaning but tightly wound Dennis (Sam Jaeger). Grey also finds herself often chatting with Fritz (Timothy Olyphant), Grady's best friend, through she's always regarded him as a sleazeball. As time passes, Grey discovers that Grady had a secret life he never shared with her -- including a young son from a previous relationship -- and as she tries to come to terms with the past of her former fiancé, she struggles to put her new life on track, and finds herself reevaluating her long-held feelings about Fritz. Catch and Release was the first directorial effort from screenwriter Susannah Grant, whose script credits include Erin Brockovich, 28 Days, and In Her Shoes. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    I was expecting more

    I suppose my problem may have been that I went in expecting something similar to Garner's "13 Going on 30." I was looking for something more up lifting where the good guy wins in the end. Unfortunately, what we find is a story that just continues to kick the main character when she is down and then rub salt in her wounds. First her husband to be dies right before the wedding. Then it comes to light that he was cheating on her the entire time with another woman in another state. Then everyone knew about it but her. Then the obviously 'bad choice' in a guy is the one she falls for, breaks up with, and then falls for again. Eh, some will like this film, I was not one of them.

    Not sure what I expected in this movie, but Kevin Smith and Timothy Olyphant bring genuine warmth and charm to very different characters making for a very enjoyable trek. Jennifer Garner transparently delivers the genuine conflict into which she's been thrown. Wonderful dialogue. Beautifully filmed. And as much as I've enjoyed Kevin Smiths own movies, this maybe his best role, truer to the person you engage in his stage shows.

    This movie wasn't Jennifer Garner's best

    I have enjoyed most of Jennifer Garner's television shows and movies but Catch & Release wasn't her best.  The pace of the movie was a little slow and there was nothing about the movie that really stood out and made it  really enjoyable. The characters were ok but nothing about them really made this movie great. Catch & Release is one of those movies you might watch once but isn't really worth adding to your movie collection.
