Catch and Release is a 2006 romantic comedy-drama film starring Jennifer Garner, Timothy Olyphant, Kevin Smith, Juliette Lewis and Sam Jaeger. Written by Susannah Grant (Erin Brockovich), who also directed, it is set and was largely filmed in Boulder, Colorado.

Gray Wheeler (Garner) had found the man of her dreams; Grady was handsome, devoted, interesting, outdoorsy and all she had ever wanted. Six years of engagement had come to an end and Gray was to be happily married to her fly-fishing fiancé — she had the dress, the caterer, the flowers, a sympathetic mother-in-law, the blender and the six different waffle irons, the expensive new rental home — until her plans were completely derailed by Grady's unfortunate death.

In the aftermath, Gray moves in with Grady's quirky roommates and navigates the shallows and rapids that remain of Grady's private life. She ends up discovering far more about Grady — and his friends, and herself — than she had imagined possible.
