The eleventh herb and/or spice is LOVE. I'm going to see if this is on On Demand, since it should be watched in a form that produces real ratings.

The well-dressed friend:

1)Finds out about the Mom’s shadiness
2)Escapes from captivity
3)Stops Billy from killing Harland
4)Officiates the wedding

Sorry Harland, the well-dressed friend is the real hero of this story.

The real supporting characters were the dimples and the soul (?) patch, on opposite sides of the moral spectrum.

Evil Boyfriend Actor hit the jackpot with this part. The only way he could be having more fun is if he had a mustache to twirl, but that would bring him too close to Sanders, so he's got to be mostly clean-shaven.

Yes, EBA was all in! Mario Lopez also seemed to be having fun, at least when he got to twinkle.

But forget the plot, forget the (lack of) characterization, forget the fact that EBA and Evil Mother could have just gotten married themselves: I kept getting distracted by the decision to name a country-club point-one-percenter Garibaldi, of all things.

Yes, I desperately want to know why Bunny isn't marrying Billy herself!

Harland sure was a passive figure in this one. Lee is the real hero.
