Paul is in recovery from alcoholism, successfully working as a gardener and going regularly to his AA meetings, an equilibrium that will be put to the test when his ex-boyfriend Roy shows up to help plan Paul’s sister’s wedding. Roy arrives with Gavin, whom he is passing off as his current flame even though the two of them broke up ages ago, mainly so that he won’t look like a loser to his ex and also because he wants the bride to be not to be upset at their breakup. The lucky lady’s parents (James Rebhorn, Kristine Sutherland) have their own secret that they are holding back to avoid bringing the fun down, while the engaged couple turn out to be going along with a big wedding to make others happy when what they actually want is something small and simple. There’s just no describing how little effort is being made here, with paltry writing and awkward performances in a film that makes very little sense and even less impression.
