Love and Mary (2006)
A woman pulling a minor scam to keep her dream business alive digs herself in deeper when she becomes involved with a goofy ex-con in this independent comedy from first-time director Elizabeth Harrison. Mary Wilson (Lauren German) was born and raised in Texas, but by the time she became an adult she'd grown tired of her off-the-wall family and moved East to build a career for herself. Mary is an expert chef who has opened an upscale bakeshop, but some bad press and a severe rent increase could put her out of business. Desperate to keep the store afloat, Mary decides to bite the bullet and go back to Texas for a visit; her plan is to bring along her fiancť Brent (Gabriel Mann), introduce him to her folks, and hope their engagement gifts will bring enough cash to pay off her creditors. However, a severe allergic reaction prevents Brent from going; Mary can't afford to postpone the trip, so she brings along Brent's twin brother Jake (also played by Mann), an irresponsible jailbird, to impersonate her intended as she pumps her family for money. Love and Mary received its world premiere at the 2007 South by Southwest Film Festival. … More

Audience Reviews for Love and Mary
A perfect example of a movie that has so much potential, but manages to not achieve what it could have. There are many good parts (usually involving Gabriel Mann), but many more just plain goofy parts. Not a stinker, but I sure would not recommend it to anyone..More
Here's an interesting movie about a couple on the brink of getting married when the bride-to-be begins to have work problems with her bakery, and the groom-to-be starts to get hives. She enlists the help of his twin brother to save her bakery when she goes home to see her family, and ask for help. It is there that she starts to develop a liking for the twin brother and the connection becomes stronger. Worth seeing!More
