How do you know destiny when it knocks on your door, or recognize it if it’s always been there?

Christian Riley, Elizabeth Horace, and Oscar Albright grew up together, the clichéd “church kids”, but Chris quickly found everything about his life stifling. When he moves to Los Angeles to get away from everything his existence has dictated for him, he doesn’t expect Elizabeth to follow him, but he’s known for as long as he can remember that she loves him obsessively…just as Oscar loves her. With Chris’s faith in tatters, he has no interest in Christianity let alone morality. Yet in the thirteen years that follow, he finds himself returning to Elizabeth whenever he hits rock bottom. Deep down, he understands she alone will always love him, no matter how far he strays or how much he hurts her when he uses her as his last-ditch refuge.

When a serial killer/rapist’s attack of Elizabeth is mercifully thwarted, Chris’s world collapses in on him with guilt and horror coming at him from every corner. The attack has changed Elizabeth. She realizes she’s put her life on hold for too long praying for Chris to share her belief that their love and life together is destined. After she severs the ties between them, Chris knows the only way to get her back is to give himself to the Lord. God begins changing him from the inside out, but—too little, too late—has he fallen in love when his angel of mercy is no longer available to him?

Destiny… Do you believe?

There's a whole subgenre of movies dubbed romantic comedies that are uproariously fun, timeless and surefire crowd-pleasers. Many recent theatrical releases share a similar (beautifully clichéd) scenario something along these lines:

Heroine is un- or under-appreciated, her true beauty and worth virtually unseen and unknown. She doesn't have a man or her man the way she wants to.

Heroine abandons reason and takes off for isolated places previously unknown to her in order to risk all in a no-holds-barred bid for impossible happiness and true love.

Before anything can go right, everything must go wrong--and go horribly wrong it most certainly does!

Heroine meets entirely the wrong man on the way to her Mr. Right. Alternate Hero annoys, frustrates, drives Heroine absolutely mad while he (having his own agenda, of course) propels her toward what she believes is Prince Charming.

At her lowest point, Heroine comes into her own, transforms into an irresistible beauty beyond compare, finds her pluck, grit and uniqueness--and both heroes will do anything to win her.

Heroine re-evaluates Prince Charming and finds him lacking what she needs to achieve her goal (to fall in love with the perfect man, naturally). Mr. Right ultimately turns out to be Mr. Wrong while Mr. Wrong becomes Mr. Right.

Hero general falls in love with Heroine, too late realizing she's the perfect woman for him, but, alas, he cannot have her. Heroine falls in love with Alternate Hero. Despite his own usually shady motives, Alternate Hero succumbs to Heroine's allure and is redeemed in the course of true love, which becomes not only possible but inevitable…and everyone who matters in this story gets their happily-ever-after.

Collective Aww.

Brayla Sullivan is the awkward, ugly duckling destined for spinsterhood who's never been kissed, never gone anywhere beyond the small town she was born and raised in, and so, when she starts emailing a man from an international "Meet Exotic Singles" ad and he suggests they meet, she drops everything to fly to Germany in a last-ditch effort to fall in love. Her poorly-conceived plan veers from point A to Z to F and every-sad-where in-between, leaving her hopelessly lost and desperate for someone to rescue her. Everything she expects to happen falls through while the unexpected may turn into everything she ever dreamed…or all she's dreaded. On the rocky road to happily-ever-after, who knows what can happen?
