Cute & easily watchable
This was an enjoyable enough romantic comedy. It's Hallmark, fairy-tale-ish and a bit better done than most made-for-TV movies but still lacking.
The story here involves time travel and I guess my biggest problem was that no effort was put into making it appear like it was 10 years in the past. The bride to be looks exactly the same when the movie flips back to 1999 as she does in the opening. I mean at least change her hair (clothes, technology, current events) a lot could have been done. Anyways this is one of those movies where you just have to let things slide especially in regards to plot holes involving time travel.
The story itself is cute, light and easily watchable. I enjoyed David Sutcliffe who is charming as a man who travels back in time to prevent his girlfriend from entering a doomed marriage that leaves her too damaged to accept his proposal 10 years later. Jennifer Westfeldt plays the love interest and was completely forgettable although she does kinda look like Phoebe from 'Friends'.
This very much becomes a comedy as 'George' tries to stop the wedding, teaming up with Lauren Holly who takes the obligatory best friend role here. There are also some amusing office politics involving George's advertising colleague and I thought the "wish" at the stop lights was a fun idea as to how the time travel happened. 5/24/15
