Yes, this movie stars McDreamy himself: Patrick Dempsey. For some reason, that always seems to excite the ladybeans.
In this movie, McDreamy plays Tom Bailey, a manbean who likes women a lot, but doesn't like them enough to keep them around all the time. The only exception is the friend he made in college, Hannah. To him Hannah is different - she's a wonderful friend, and he has refused to ever make their relationship romantic, out of fear of losing her. When Hannah leaves for Europe for a short while, Tom realizes how much he misses her and that he may actually love her as more than a friend. Just as he is willing to make a change in their relationship, Hannah returns engaged to a Scottish Duke . . . and asks Tom to be her maid of honor. Tom decides to use the opportunities that being her maid of honor will present him with to prove to Hannah that he is the perfect man for her, not the Duke.
"Made of Honor" is a lot of silly fun. Some of the best parts are when Tom is with his group of buddies, and they are all discussing the upcoming wedding, his romance with Hannah, and most especially when they are over at his apartment helping him pack gift baskets. Tom being the maid of honor gives not only him but his friends a chance to get in touch with their more "feminine" side. Also, once the setting moves to Scotland, there is absolutely gorgeous and breathtaking scenery. I give "Made of Honor" two paws up for being a fun and romantic movie that both mancats and ladycats can enjoy watching.
