About the Movie

Gray Wheeler just lost everything. But it could be the best thing that ever happened to her. After the death of her fiancé, Gray (Jennifer Garner) moves in with her late love's best friends. While Sam (Kevin Smith) and Dennis (Sam Jaeger) do their best to cheer Gray up, Fritz (Timothy Olyphant) doesn't seem to care. Once Gray breaks through Fritz's defenses, however, she finally sees why her fiancé thought so highly of him. As they spend more time together, Gray learns that her chances for love have not died out with her fiancé. But when some surprise guests show up on their doorstep, it'll take the love of all of her new friends to help Gray learn that life may be messy, but love is messier.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Screenwriter Susannah Grant makes her directing debut with a romance that wants to respect the mess of love and loss but winds up smoothing all its rough edges with a Hollywood pumice stone. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Aug 18, 2007

Rotten: A romantic non-comedy. – Richard Schickel, TIME Magazine, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Release yourself from boredom by giving it a miss. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Dec 3, 2007

Rotten: The chick comedy-drama Catch and Release may look bland, but it's not. It's worse. To rise to the level of blandness, it would need to have a few gallons of Tabasco dumped into it. – Kyle Smith, New York Post, Jul 16, 2008

Catch this movie!

I really enjoyed this movie. It's heart-warming and soulful, free-spirited and fun. Very good movie, highly recommended.


CATCH & RELEASE is one of my all time favorite movies now. It's the story of a girl who has to grow up when she realizez the fiance' who's just passed away, isn't the man she thought she was marrying at all, but in fact, a total stranger. Starring Jennifer Garner, and getting help from some great supporting actors including, Kevin Smith & Timothy Olyphant, CATCH & RELEASE is a modern day drama about growing up, moving on, and finding love, even if it's in the last place you thought it'd be. Don't miss this movie. JENNIFER GARNER is stunning.....and the supporting cast is fantastic! it's a movie you don't want to miss!

Best Movie Ever

I have recently been watching a lot of romantic movies and I have to say this one is by far the best. It has just about everything, even a hot lead guy. ;] You just can't wait for the final outcome and when it unfolds you are just like, "Ahhhhh, thank you! Finally!" I highly recomend it to everyone!
