Finally! A Rom-Com Where The Woman Isn’t Begging A Guy To Marry Her

I feel like romantic comedies are always about a woman who’s trying to get hitched, and a guy who’s resisting (except for, I guess, “Runaway Bride”). So I’m really excited for the new Lizzy Caplan movie, “Save the Date,” where — gasp! — she plays a woman who turns down her boyfriend’s proposal. Caplan was absolutely breathtaking in the pretty-much-straight-to-video “Bachelorette,” and we’re really excited to see her helm a film here. Plus, her boyfriend is played by Christina Hendricks’ real life boo, who we hear is a pretty funny guy. []
