It's exactly what it looks like from the commercials -- a one-joke movie, and that one joke isn't even funny to begin with.

I would honestly rather watch the Holocaust In Colour than sit through this again.

It's a bit short of laughs, but there are a few cute ideas in this formulaic, predictable romantic comedy.

Sadly, License to Wed lived up to my expectations 100%. That is to say, it was unfunny and uninspired.

Two up-and-coming stars get left at the cinematic altar in License To Wed, a badly strained romantic comedy with enough plot contrivances to fill a reception hall.

The Scorecard Review

As someone engaged, I felt they disrespected what marriage can and should mean. And most importantly, I'm offended at their attempt at cringe-worthy humor.

Predictable wedding comedy is all about Williams.

You know it's bad when there are more interesting things happening during the outtakes in the closing credits than in the movie itself.

It's not quite as bad as some would have it (it will not, for example, kill puppies), but it is really very horrible.

This movie is an ecclesiastical disaster and, like the Rector of Stiffkey, Williams should be thrown to the lions.

Forget Wedding Crashers... this is a plain old Wedding Disaster.

The worst film I've seen so far this year.

The biggest letdown, is Williams, whose manic improvisations now bear all the hallmarks of a pub bore.

Robin Williams is back in this horrifically embarrassing and misconceived wedding comedy.

Guardian [UK]

Josef Goebbels had a home movie made of the failed 1944 Hitler assassins being hanged from meathooks with piano wire. It probably had more laughs, more fun, more feelgood moments than this family comedy.

The comedy, starring Robin Williams as a reverend who won't marry couples until they have passed several ridiculous tests, raised a good few laughs.

I now pronounce Licence To Wed a total flop.

License To Wed never escapes the combined trap of terminal blandness and a severe lack of decent jokes.

Christopher Tookey
Daily Mail [UK]

This bewilderingly bone-headed movie convinces that Ben and Sadie, should be kept as far apart as possible, if only to prevent them from breeding the kind of morons who would see nothing wrong with a movie such as Licence To Wed - or worse still, make it.
