The 2 main characters are sisters, both in relationships with members of the same band. One breaks up over a surprise embarrassing proposal, the other is getting married but is apprehensive as her fiance isn't contributing to wedding plans. So there's lots of dialogue, but it's all about the wedding and or the breakup and or the rebound. Both female characters are cliches.

-- disagreed with the rating and said:
The sisters have plenty of conversations. Sure, most of them are about the wedding or one of the guys, but certainly not all of them. I'd say the wedding talk qualifies this for a pass, but I know some people like to argue that that's indirectly about a man. The most memorable conversation in my mind that undoubtedly counts, *SPOILER ALERT* is at the end when they discuss the abortion.
