The screenplay’s title is A Look in the Rear View, and a tagline might read something like: “On the night before his wedding, a good-natured, self-effacing groom reflects on a memorable and transitional year, which will make you laugh, think and maybe even cry— but mostly laugh.”
The memorable, transitional year referenced in the tagline is the groom’s senior year of high school, the year in which the groom believes he became an adult. Most of the movie consists of flashbacks to his senior year. The film intermittently goes back to the present day, which primarily consists of the groom telling his story to three friends as they sit around a coffee table in his hotel suite, drinking too much cognac, the night before his wedding.
The humor is mostly dialogue and situationally based, and while some of it is unquestionably sophomoric, it’s not a physical or wacky comedy. Unlike many comedies, it doesn’t go outside the boundaries of what could really happen (although admittedly at times comes close).
