||Synopsis: Thirty-something Hillary Burns has spent her life trying to get the approval of her parents (most specifically her judgmental mother, Meredith Burns) thus far without success. Part of that approval for Hillary is to marry the right man. That's why Hillary is so happy she is engaged to successful lawyer Jason King, whom she will bring home to meet the family for the first time at their Thanksgiving get-together weekend in a week's time; however, Hillary's life starts to fall apart when simultaneously she loses her part-time newspaper writing job (when the newspaper itself folds) and Jason dumps her to focus on his career (which is seemingly more important to him than Hillary). On the advice of her best friend Sophie, Hillary - who feels she can't go home without Jason (especially as her two sisters' lives seem to meet their mother's approval) - decides reluctantly to go to an online dating site to find someone to pose as Jason for the upcoming family weekend. She finds David, an actor ... Written by Huggo

If you are avoiding this movie because you dislike the Duff sisters,
fear not. Even though Haley Duff gets top billing, she doesn't get more
than about 10 minutes of screen time, for much of which she's in the
background, and maybe five lines of dialogue.
This movie is only slightly more improbable than a lot of seasonal
romantic comedies. The trope of bringing an imposter as your date to a
a family event is not really grounded in reality anyway, so if you're
willing to suspend disbelief that far, it's a nice enough diversion for
a couple of hours around Thanksgiving.
The cast is reasonably solid, if under-exercised, with some halfway
decent comedy chops available (but not accessed) in Shelley Long and
Sam McMurray. The two leads are cute and sad by turns, mostly at
appropriate moments, and sing well together for one nice scene. Other
supporting characters... well, they look their parts and speak their
lines but don't expect to find gold in their emotional range.
The script and performances didn't quite gel, leaving plenty of avenues
for both comedy and heart under-utilized. Real dramatic situations were
barely nodded at in passing while the most potentially humorous moments
were signalled more by the characters' laughter than by any similar
urge in the audience.
If you combined 'The Family Stone' (where only Sarah Jessica Parker is
lacking the necessary depth of character) with 'My Best Friend's
Wedding' (where everything is deliberately shallow and the moments of
heart stand out better for it), and made a college film class movie,
this is about what you'd get.
