"I Do (But I Don't)" is a romantic comedy movie released in 2004, directed by Kelly Makin and featuring a powerhouse cast including Denise Richards, Dean Cain, and Karen Cliche. The film follows the story of a wedding planner named Lauren Crandell, played by Richards, who has been disillusioned by love and marriage after her own relationship fell apart. However, despite her reservations, a new client named Nick (Cain) sweeps her off her feet and has her reconsidering her stance.

Lauren is a successful wedding planner in a small town in Illinois. She is extremely good at her job and has a busy schedule. One day, a new client named Nick sends her a request for planning his wedding. Lauren is initially hesitant, as she is already working on several events and doesn't have much time. On top of that, Nick is an old acquaintance from high school, and Lauren isn't too fond of him, but she agrees to take on the job.

As they work together on the wedding preparations, Lauren and Nick start to develop a closer relationship. Nick begins to prove to Lauren that he has changed since high school, and she starts to see him in a new light. However, there are complications thrown their way, like Nick's demanding and traditional mother who has her own ideas about the wedding, and Lauren's ex-fiance who suddenly re-emerges.

Lauren has to deal with her own insecurities and trust issues, which stem from her own failed relationship. Buoyed by the advice of her friends, played by Mimi Kuzyk and Michael Madsen, Lauren must navigate through this season of change with Nick by her side. As the wedding day arrives, Lauren has to decide if she will put away her fears and trust Nick with her heart.

The strength of this movie lies in the chemistry between Richards and Cain. The two actors play off each other effortlessly, and their banter feels natural and unforced. There are some truly hilarious moments in the movie, like when Nick surprises Lauren by breaking into '80s dance moves, or when they have to thwart a group of rowdy bachelors. But beneath the surface, the movie has a lot of heart, and there are some touching scenes that will leave you with a smile on your face.

Apart from the romantic element, "I Do (But I Don't)" also explores the dynamics of family, friendship, and community. Lauren's mom, played by Jessica Walter, is interfering but caring in equal measure, and Nick's mother, played by Barclay Hope, is overbearing yet well-intentioned. Lauren's best friend, played by Karen Cliche, provides moral support throughout the movie, while Nick's friend, played by David Lipper, is a wildcard who provides comedic relief in just the right doses.

The movie has a charming and cozy small-town vibe, with its shots of quaint houses, autumnal foliage, and community events. The film's setting is the perfect backdrop for a story about two people navigating the complexities of love and relationships, and emerging stronger for it. The movie's upbeat soundtrack also complements the narrative, with tracks like Vanessa Carlton's "A Thousand Miles" and Dexys Midnight Runners' "Come on Eileen" featuring prominently.

In conclusion, "I Do (But I Don't)" is a delightful romantic comedy that will leave you with a warm and fuzzy feeling. With its excellent cast, slick direction, and relatable storyline, this movie is like a cozy blanket on a chilly day - comforting and familiar. Whether you're a fan of rom-coms or just looking for a feel-good movie, "I Do (But I Don't)" is definitely worth watching.
