Instead of getting married, Grey Wheeler (Jennifer Garner) finds herself holding a funeral. But the untimely passing of her sportsman fianc? proves less tragic than the secrets revealed about him as she tries to put his affairs in order and rebuild her life. Billed as a romantic comedy --despite the death, this fish story just gets lost in a tangle of sexual situations.

Moving through the stages of grief is difficult not only for the bride-to-be but also the many other people who loved Grady. Preoccupied with sexual themes, the film contains a loud, audible pairing as well as numerous visual unions that include some back and shoulder nudity. The script also has ample portrayals of cleavage, an errant hand during a massage and several slang terms for sex. A man’s extramarital relationship results in the birth of a child. A woman briefly comments about her own homosexual encounter. Many of the characters drink, some to the point of drunkenness, as a respite from reality. One man attempts suicide by mixing alcohol with pills. Another man smokes a joint. Moderate profanities along with several shortened extreme expletives are used throughout the film. A child violently stomps on a fish and is later shown playing with a large pocketknife.
