Catch and Release

LIFE IS MESSY… LOVE IS MESSIER.

Gray (Jennifer Garner) loses her fiancĆ© in an accident and mourns him terribly… until she learns that he used to cheat on her and one of the affairs resulted in a child. A film that barely earns its two stars on the strength of Garner’s likability and Kevin Smith’s comic relief (although one effort to give his character some depth by putting him in harm’s way fails miserably). This is screenwriter Susannah Grant’s directing debut, but her story about grief and accepting new opportunities in life is way too bland and the central romance might put you to sleep.

2007-U.S. 112 min. Color. Widescreen. Written and directed byĀ Susannah Grant. Cast: Jennifer Garner (Gray), Timothy Olyphant (Fritz), Kevin Smith (Sam), Sam Jaeger, Juliette Lewis, Joshua Friesen.

Trivia: Jason Lee was allegedly first considered for the part of Sam.
