Updated version of Buster Keaton's movie Seven Chances.
A proud-to-be-a bachelor (Chris O'Donnell) will inherit $120 million
from his grandfather if he is married by his 33rd birthday (which happens to be tomorrow).
Renee Zellweger also stars as his long-time girlfriend, who gets suspicious
of his sudden desire for commitment. James Cromwell plays a priest who is
enlisted to marry the couple. Marley Shelton, Artie Lange, Stacey Edwards,
Brooke Shields, Jennifer Esposito and Sarah Silverman also star. Mariah Carey has a cameo.
Gary Sinyor directs from Steve Cohen's script.
Capsule Review: A very tired one joke comedy that ends up searching for laughs.
Chris O'Donnell and Renee Zellweger have been appealing before, but all of that charm
is missing here.
[PG-13 - language] (New Line)
