She meets Kevin, a cynical writer who finds her attractive, and that same week her flirtatious younger sister Tess comes to town. Jane silently watches George fall for Tess, a manipulative pretender. Worse, Jane may be called upon to plan their wedding. Meanwhile, Kevin tries to get Jane's attention and has an idea that may advance his career. Can Jane uncork her feelings?

- Oh. Thanks.

- Oh!

- Tiger Woods swung his first club...

well before

Me? I was eight when I discovered

my purpose in life.

I was at the St. Thomas Church next to the

Hyatt Regency in Weehawken, New Jersey.

It was my cousin Lisa's


Here, Dad. Let me.

It was our first big

family event since Mom died...

and Dad was not in great shape.

Daddy, can you take me to the girls' room?

I have to go pee.

Uh, come on, Tess.

Let's go.

Sh*t! Oh, sh*t!

- Oh,Janey, I'm sorry.

- It's okay. We have cable.

What'll I do?

What the f--

The heck am I gonna do?

Thank you so much, sweetie.

You saved the day.

Janey, get my train.

And that was the moment.

That's when I fell in love with weddings.

I knew that I had helped someone

on the most important day of their life.

And I couldn't wait

for my own special day.

Oh,Jane, that's stunning.

It really is. It's the perfect dress.

Oh, my God.

You look so beautiful.

Really? You really think so?

It's amazing,

like it was made for you.

- It's for you. It's the bride.

- Oh, great.

Thank you. Hi, Suzanne.

-Jane, is it ready?

- Yeah. They just finished hemming it.

- It fits?

- I know. Thank God we're the same size.

- Are you coming now?

- I'm gonna have it over to you in just a minute.

- Don't worry about anything. This is your day.

- Thanks,Jane.

Come on.

Get that out of here.

There you are! You look great.

- Thanks!

- Okay. Let's go. Come on.

Oh. Here.

- What's this?

- I brought you a shawl, Visine, Tylenol...

- a pair of my earrings.

- Ooh.

- About your hair--

- What? The b*tch said, "Up." It's up.

Okay. I'll fix it


What's all this stuff?

Let's just hurry.

Aren't the dresses great?

The best thing about them is...

-you can shorten them and wear them again.

- Definitely. So true.

Give me a smile.

Okay. Excuse me.

On the right-

We are gathered here today

to celebrate the union...

of Suzanne and Greg.

This is a time

of great joy...

as we honor two people

who have come together...

to be joined

in holy matrimony.

- Oh, wow.

- Sorry.



Thanks. 31 Water Street.


Okay. I will give you

$300 flat...

- for the whole night on one condition--

- Yeah.

You don't look in the rear view mirror

or I deduct.

- Deal? Great.

- Yeah.

What are you doing?

Hey. You just cost yourself

I-- No one's looking.

I'll be right back.

Thank God you're here. I'm freakin' out.

- I forgot my thingy.

- Oh! Um--

I brought extra.

No worries.

- Perfect.

- Thank you.

- Hi!

- Hi!

Are these dresses great? And the best thing

is you could shorten it and wear it again.

That is definitely so true.

We gather here today

to join in holy matrimony...

- Shari Rabinowitz--

- And Prakash Maharasti...

known to his friends

as "Woody."

Shari and Prakash are so happy

that so many of you are here today-

What are you doing?

Get in the car! Come on!

Go! Go! Go!

- You in?

- Yeah.

Hey! Hey!

You are down to 260.

Are you sure you wanna

keep this up?

- No!

- Okay, then.

Okay. Which one do you want?

The brunet or the blond?

I kinda want the blond.

I'm not gonna lie.

Casey, can't you keep it

in your pants for one wedding?

Are you kidding? The only reason to wear

this monstrous dress...

is so some drunken groomsman

can rip it to shreds with his teeth.

What time is it now? Well, I'm just gonna be

about two more hours, so--

I'll call you back.




Whoo! Whoo!

#Lovely is the feeling now #

Hey! Wrong shoes!

Wait a minute. Wrong shoes.

Ziggy! What?

# Temperature's rising now #

- Ha!

- #Power #

Oh! Geez!

Jane, I'm so hungry. Did you eat anything?

- Oh, yeah.

- It looks gorgeous. I haven't eaten anything.

And let me give you some advice,

do not drink Moet on an empty stomach.

I'll tell ya. Whoa. Fall right off.

- Did you meet my grandma?

- Yeah. She was great. I really enjoyed her.

- I think she's having fun.

- Oh, yeah. Lots.

#Don't stop

till you get enough #

- #Keep on with the force #

- Whoo-hoo!

- #Don't stop till you get enough #

- #Keep on, baby #

#Don't stop till you get enough ##

-Jane, what is that thing on your forehead?

- Oh.

I'd like to take a moment

to give a special thank-you to a girl...

who's really gone

above and beyond.

The girl who not only hosted my shower

and helped me design the invitation--

She went with me to the caterer,

the florist, the wedding cake bakery-

And to eight bridal stores...

where she helped me cling

to my self-esteem--

As I tried on dress

after dress.

So thanks,Jane!


Okay! Everybody ready?

Is she all right?

Is she all right?

Whoa, whoa, whoa.

Easy.Just take it easy.

You don't wanna move around too much.

Okay. This is a serious injury.

I need you to give me some ice.

You, give me a bottle of 100-proof liquor...

and something

she can bite on-- stat!

All right. She's fine,


Just a little bump

on the head. Carry on.

You a doctor?

No, but Tweedledee and "Tweedledrunk"

were bugging me, so--

- Okay. Do you know your name?


Jane. I'm Kevin.

Hmm. Thank you

for helping me.

- Sure. Got it?

- Uh-huh.

- Okay. You're good?

- I'm fine.

All right.

Whoa, whoa. Okay.

Why don't we get you a cab?
