I THINK I DO

Year: 1997
Country: United States
Run Time: 104 minutes

Taking cues from classic Hollywood screwball comedies out of the 1930s and '40s, yet as current as Generation Post-X, I THINK I DO is the howlingly funny romantic roundabout that "Reality Bites" tried so hard to be. Several George Washington University alums reunite in D.C. for the wedding of Matt and Carol, two of their circle. But that's hardly the issue here, because the couple has been living together since senior year. Instead all eyes are on out-of-the-closet Bob, now a successful soap opera writer in New York, and Brendan, his old campus roommate, on whom he had an unrequited crush (during Halloween they caroused as Gilligan and Skipper). Though Bob has never forgotten Brendan, he arrives at the celebration along with his steady companion, a daytime TV hung. Brendan makes his entrance unattached - a source of hope to his onetime flame Sarah, a second-year law student yearning for a permanent man in her life. These crazy-quilt relationships sort themselves out over a weekend of excruciating, politically-correct '90s nuptials, in a contemporary comic contretemps set to the hounting strains of . . . The Partridge Family Album.
