  • Holly tries to help Ben's music career, but ends up jeopardizing their relationship.

    This was one of those episodes that was just there to build more on Ben's background and music. It was great to have Jesse McCartney as a guest star. It was hilarious when he tried to ask Holly out for dinner and to a rated R movie. He only wanted to see a movie like that because he was finally of age XD Too funny XD Lauren helps Rick pick out a ring for Val, but she only finds one she would like. She also meets a guy at the jewelry store, but he's only interested in married women. Lauren plays along, and pretends Rick is her husband XDmoreless
  • Jesse McCartney guest stars.

    Jesse McCartney was about the only good thing about this episode, that and the end of the B plot with Val. The A plot, I must of rated it so low is because I hate Ben & Holly spending Val's money for school, Yeah that's not new. The B plot wasn't interesting in the beginning, because Val thinking her ring is ugly is not a good plot counting on the fact that it's been in every other series involving a wedding. Anyways the end made up for it because it was a trick. Another reason this didn't intrigue me is that my favorite character, Tina wasn't in it.moreless
  • I liked it!

    Holly is pushing Ben to find a gig for his band. He asks her not to. Later, when Gary mentions he knows a club owner, she gets Ben a gig, but uses money that Val gave her for books to get the gig. Vince really hates Ben. Ben is angry at Holly at first, but then realizes that she has good intentions. Val doesn't like Lauren planning her wedding. Lauren pretends to be married to Rick, in order to go out with a guy who only dates married women.

    This episode was pretty good! It was funny, but not as interesting as others. I give it an 8.5!moreless
  • What I Like About You at it's best: silly, pointless fun!

    One of the best episodes of season 3 is also probably the most simplistic; recently the show had been focusing too much on the love triangle between Holly, Ben and Vince. Thankfully this episode is a slight breather from this and allows for the writers just to have fun with the characters. Setting the story up is easy; Lauren is planning her best friend’s wedding in the way that she would want hers. With no taste Lauren is easily the funniest character in this episode. Though this show is never go to win an Emmy, it’s just lighthearted fun – what could be wrong with that?moreless
