No need to go to the movies these days with so much original television movies coming on each week. This one is from the Lifetime network and it’s sure to put a smile on your face. The film is based on the best seller “The Vow” by Denene Millner.
Regina Hall (Think Like a Man Too) and Grammy® Award winners Jill Scott (Get On Up, Steel Magnolias) and Eve Jeffers Cooper (Whip It, Barbershop) star as three single friends who vow to get married within a year after attending their best friend’s wedding. Angela Burt-Murray and Mitzi Miller also stars Brooklyn Sudano (My Wife and Kids).
After attending their friend Elise’s (Sudano) wedding to Nate (Bishop) on New Year’s Eve, Trista (Hall), a career-driven talent agent, Viviane (Scott), a successful gossip columnist, and Amaya (Cooper), a struggling actress, make a pact to get married within the year to either a new love or a man waiting in the wings. But the close friends face their own set of challenges – Trista has not gotten over her commitment-phobic ex-boyfriend Damon (White), Viviane is secretly in love with Sean (George), the father of her son, and Amaya is desperate to break up her boyfriend Keith’s (Sanders) unhappy marriage so they can live happily ever after. Each woman starts the year with high hopes and dreams of what will happen over the next 12 months…but will they all make it to the altar?
