a BIG flop
bad acting, lack of character development, beautiful scenery. jennifer garner was a disappointment as there was no karate kicks or wigs involved for this role in Catch and Release. the movie begins set in a funeral which should have been a wedding if the groom-to-be was not killed in a freak accident. after the opening scene it was one fragmented scene after another which helped us to never form an emotional attachment to Gray (garner's character), the left behind bride. later we find out the her groom had cheated on her while they were dating and had a son which he hid from gray... who cares! i didn't, so i turned the movie off because it was so predictable i saw the love connection with the bad-boy best friend from the dvd jacket. honestly, i don't mind cheesy, predictable romance comedies, but give me characters i care about and a plot that is interesting. two thumbs down for this sad excuse of a movie. the only plus of the movie was seeing bits and pieces of boulder, co and the flatirons. a majority of the movie was filmed in canada, but they took a week to film a few scenes around boulder. yea boulder!
