Over the course of one raucous night at a seaside wedding, seven close friends -- all members of an eclectic college clique -- assemble to watch two of their own tie the knot. Laura (Katie Holmes), maid of honor and Lila (Anna Paquin), the golden-girlbride, have long rivaled over the groom, Tom (Josh Duhamel). Friendships and alliances are tested, and the love triangle comes to a head the night before the wedding, when the drunken friends frolic in the nearby surf and return to shore... without the groom.
