Overview

A woman faced with a tragedy discovers the man she loved was not all she imagined him to be in this romantic comedy-drama. Grey Jennifer Garner was a beautiful woman who found the man of her dreams in Grady Douglas, and was looking forward to spending the rest of her life with him until he suddenly died only a few days before they were to be married. With her wedding turned into an impromptu funeral, Grey is emotionally devastated but has to deal with the practicalities of her new life alone, including moving out of the house she shared with Grady. Short on cash and in need of emotional support, Grey moves in with two longtime friends, sloppy but philosophical Sam Kevin Smith and well-meaning but tightly wound Dennis Sam Jaeger. Grey also finds herself often chatting with Fritz Timothy Olyphant, Grady's best friend, through she's always regarded him as a sleazeball. As time passes, Grey discovers that Grady had a secret life he never shared with her -- including a young son from a previous relationship -- and as she tries to come to terms with the past of her former fiancé, she struggles to put her new life on track, and finds herself reevaluating her long-held feelings about Fritz. Catch and Release was the first directorial effort from screenwriter Susannah Grant, whose script credits include Erin Brockovich, 28 Days, and In Her Shoes.

    Original plot!

    I really enjoyed this movie. It is one of those films that is perfect for a relaxing Sunday evening at home. A bottle of wine, or some whisky also goes great with it. Jennifer Garner is really good in this film, and I liked that it is a different kind of role from the ones that she usually plays. The story is fresh and original. Would reccomend this for anyone :). Also, great soundtrack. Must buy it soon.

    Not Your Average Romantic Comedy

    I rented this with fairly low expectations, but was pleasantly surprised. It ended up being one of my favorite romantic comedies I've seen recently. I loved the emotion of the storyline and the great friendship shown between Jen Garner's character and her roomies. Only thing I found quite annoying were the character names! Otherwise this was a great movie.

    A really good movie!

    My wife bought this on a whim and I am so glad she did! This was a great film! It deals with so many emotions and feelings. It was a real breakout role for Garner and a chance for Smith to steal every scene. The soundtrack is awesome too!

    Romantic Comedy

    If you love romantic comedy, this one you'll want to watch over and over. I thought the soundtrack helped make the movie. It was nice to see Jennifer Garner in a new genre and her cast was way better than I expected.
