Although this film failed to click with audiences, the disc has been loaded with some interesting extras in order to entice people who are reluctant to give the film a chance. Although the disc itself contains just the original theatrical trailer, the DVD-ROM material includes script-to-screen access, wedding resources, and updated cast and crew information.

    Great movie

    Poor Jimmy makes the biggest mistake of his life when proposes to his girlfriend Ann. She takes it the wrong way and says no. Jimmy's grandfather dies and leaves him a great sum of money. The catch is he has to be married before his 30th birthday. It wouldn't be a problem normally, but it's tomorrow! He goes around trying to get any of his old girlfriends to marry him. In the end he makes the right decision. A hilarious romantic comedy. Two thumbs up!
