At the beginning of For Better and for Worse, the wedding plans for Robert (Patrick Dempsey) and Catherine (Kelly Lynch) are moving along smoothly. Alas, Robert has entrusted the responsibility of sending out invitations to his best friend, a notorious practical joker. Thus it is that an invitation is mailed to the Pope. Surprise of surprises, His Holiness accepts! Poor Catherine: she could handle a romantic rival, but how does one resign oneself to playing second fiddle to the Pope? Originally titled RSVP, this easy-to-take comedy is pretty mild stuff, even allowing for its PG-13 rating.
