My Fake Fiancé (2009)

dir. Gil Junger

One of those ABC Family movies that is almost entirely dependent on the premise that being single is the worst, most disgusting thing in the world. Sabrina the Teenage Witch meets Joey from Blossom during a wedding at, shock horror, the singles table. At first, they’re scathing about the opulent gifts and cash the wedding receive. Fair. But then they decide to pretend they’re getting married themselves, so they can take advantage of all the same perks, with an extra helping of deceit thrown into the mix. But will a genuine love between them grow by the end, meaning they can actually get married after all? Oh, how hard to say. The movie is very clear about all of Joey’s problems in life stemming from his absent father. Being single is the worst, most disgusting thing in the world; being raised by a single parent comes a close second. Thanks, ABC Family!
