Stop me if you've heard this one. A plucky heroine sashays onto the silver screen, her slender arm linked to that of a bland chump. A diamond sparkles on her left hand. Their wedding plans come nicely along, he agreeably accommodating to her needs and whims, she acutely aware that this is a fault in his genetic make-up she must overlook.
Meanwhile, the actual love of her life, a man who, at some point prior, probably broke her heart, gets thrown into the mix and spends much of his allotted screen time being extremely handsome as well as something of a freewheeling bastard.
But then, on some pretext, Good-Looking Bastard realizes that the love of a good woman (i.e. Plucky Heroine) makes him want to change his ways, till death do him and Plucky Heroine part.
