Gerard Stembridge directs this charming comedy about a handsome stranger who wreaks havoc on an entire family. Pub torch singer Lucy Owen (Kate Hudson) falls for Adam (Stuart Townsend) as soon as she lays eyes on him. Tired of a string of failed short-termed relationships, she succumbs to Adam's radiate charisma and agrees to marry him after only knowing him for a scant couple of days. Yet when she brings him home to her family, she finds to her dismay that his magnetism works equally well on her two older sisters. The middle one, Laura (Frances O'Connor), is a shy bookish sort whose love for poetry proves to be her weakness, while eldest sister Alice (Charlotte Bradley) is aloof at first, but eventually she also yields to his wiles. This film was screened at the 2000 Sundance Film Festival. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi

Again, everyone else's reviews made me take a chance to rent it and I really like Kate Hudson. Unfortunately, she wasted herself and I could care less about the plot, characters, the movie in its entirety.
I shut it off before the end and I'll usually suffer to the end on most movies. But this one was just baaaaaaaad all around. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME!
I'm hard pressed to figure out why the sisters would approve of Lucy marrying Adam, as he goes to bed with all of them. What is this movie saying? It's okay to have affairs if it's all in the family? The story is trite, with little redeeming features and suspicious Irish accents by all. The only interesting gimmick is when the stories overlap and you can see the other sister's take on an action by Adam. Otherwise, skip it.
