The romantic comedy has a pretty straight-forward play book. What makes one fresh is either a good performance and a nice twist before we get to the expected happily ever after.
"Marry Me" (9 p.m. Lifetime, Sunday & Monday) has one of the two qualities. Which makes it a not-unpleasant way to spend four hours, but not a grand slam.
It tells the story of Rae Ann Carter (Lucy Liu), a social worker with artistic aspirations who wants the fairy tale -- the handsome man who's smart, funny and will love her always. When we meet her, she's on her way to meet her boyfriend of two years Adam (Bobby Cannavale), who she thinks is going to propose. Turns out he's not.
