Adorable, despite its definitely deserved R rating; Alberta scenery out of this world in beauty
Leo (Ryan Kwanten) is an aspiring writer. Unfortunately, just as a publisher was interested in signing him, creative differences with the editor doomed the project. Now, he works as a dishwasher for the local Hindi restaurant and hasn't found another publishing house. This upsets his wife, among other things, and she bolts, taking one of their two Persian cats, Snow. Now, Leo is left with Balls the cat plus the knowledge that his ex is getting rich writing a blog about "Why you suck", meaning Leo. Down and out, Leo goes out one sunny morning and spies the woman, Colette (Sarah Cannon), who is just right for him. Most unhappily, she's in a wedding dress and is about to enter the chapel near Leo's home. Dashing back to get his tux on, Leo crashes the wedding and makes pals with the bride's mother (Catherine O'Hara). She reveals that her daughter is making a mistake, having known the groom for only four months. This perks Leo up! After the ceremony, Leo makes a pass at Colette and gets thrown out on his ear. Yet, as he makes "opportunities" for he and Colette to cross paths, will there really be a chance for Leo to steal a bride away? This darling movie, though definitely R rated, is a must see for romcom fans. The cast is quite fine, with Kwanten giving a funny turn in the lead and others following suit. Then, what scenery! The Alberta setting in a town at the foot of the Rockies is just incredibly gorgeous. Likewise, the script is clever and brimming with comedy while the direction keeps the action moving along. No, don't see it if you will be uncomfortable with a fair amount of blue material. All others, go, go, go for it!
