You can probably tell by looking at the actors photos that this is an older movie. It was actually released in 2003. However, unless you are familiar with the real ages of the cast, you would never guess that Lucky 7 is over 15 years old by watching it. I didn't note anything else in the movie itself that would "date" it. Perhaps, I was enjoying watching it too much to look closely.
This is not your typical "girl has to choose between two boyfriends" movies. The plot is more detailed than that. In fact, one of these men only needs a pretend girlfriend for a weekend. And, Amy is not quite ready for the other one to call her his "girlfriend", even though she hopes to marry him.
The Plot of Lucky 7
At the age of 7, Amy's (Kimberly Williams-Paisley) ill mom is spending the last days of her life on this earth with her husband and daughter. During a mother-daughter chat, she gives her daughter an outline of what and when she should do things in her life. She lists things like summer camp, high school, and the age she will be when she goes on her first date. At that point, Amy asks if she will marry him and her mother says no and places a #1 by the word "boy". The timeline continues through grad school and #7 boyfriend, the one that Amy will marry.
Amy lives her life by that timeline. It is the thread that still binds her to her mother. She has finished grad school and is working as a lawyer. When she meets the man she believes is the one she should marry, she has to devise a way to postpone things somehow since he is only #6.
Amy was recently invited to attend an out of town wedding with the man who serves her bagels every morning. She decides that is her opportunity to sneak in a #6 boyfriend, therefore Daniel (Brad Rowe) will ultimately be her #7 boyfriend and she can marry him and remain true to the timeline.
Peter Connor (Patrick Dempsey) isn't looking for a girlfriend, but he wants his friends to stop worrying about him. He believes if he takes a "girlfriend" to an upcoming wedding, they will think he has moved on with his life after being jilted. Therefore, he needs someone to go to his friends' wedding with him and pretend to be his girlfriend. He asks Amy, a nice customer in the bagel store, if she will go with him. She commits to helping him find someone. When she shows up the day before the wedding saying she will go with him, he is rather surprised, but happy to have a companion.
Things don't exactly turn out as planned. I'm sure you will enjoy the movie as much as I did!
