A beautiful wedding dress moves throughout the six degrees of separation when it ends up in the hands of six different brides-to-be and changes each of the women's lives forever in ways they could never have expected. Tyne Daly and Neil Patrick Harris star in this made-for-television romantic drama that follows the gown, beginning with its tragic beginnings in the hands of a prospective bride who awaits her fiancé's return during World War II.
I liked the idea of the story: that one dress touches the lives of several different women. But the way they told the story was confusing. There was one couple who seems to just be there to keep the story moving. But the man of the couple was an idiot and not of the endearing sort. He kept screwing things up, the reason why the dress floated around between so many women. But it felt like what it was. Just a plot device to keep the story progressing. All the issues I had with the movie could have been fixed if they'd removed the idiot. If each mistake he had made had been done by a different person, it wouldn't have felt contrived. The mistakes were believable enough on their own: a stolen car, swapped dresses at a dry cleaner, and swapped mailing labels. But when one person did them all, it just got ridiculous in an otherwise good movie.
Gave the movie three stars on Netflix. Would have given it four if the idiot hadn't been in it. Anyways, that's it for now. Talk at you later.
