...ultimately done in by the need to abide by Hollywood convention and send everyone home in a joshing good mood.

There are individual moments that are very funny. But it takes a merciless focus to make a good comedy, and the director, David Dobkin, has too much else on his mind.

If a film is going to be in bad taste, at least it should have the decency to follow through on its convictions, rather than morph into something else.

The film starts out quirky, but settles for the routine. And characters, instead of deepening, flatten out.

Guys will have a few laughs but this certainly won't have the rewatch value of the likes of Old School or the Pie movies.

Vince Vaughn commits rampant acts of comic zeal while the script around him crumbles in a movie that loses its thrust like a cat caught in traffic.

If you've ever witnessed high-school students try to whip up SNL-type sketch comedy, everything in Wedding Crashers will have a familiar feel.

Despite its considerable comic potential, 'Wedding Crashers' features too many silly scenes that made it hard for me to suspend disbelief.

Drags the setup scenario out for too long and loses its comical edge in the process.

Crashers slumps badly in the stretch when the filmmakers have to find a way to surprise us when we're fully aware of where the story is going.

rides its amusing premise like gangbusters for one solid act, but overextends itself the minute it leaves the comfy confines of its smart setup

The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

This is all likely to go over like gangbusters at the box office ... but the overall sloppiness and genial contempt for the viewer is tough to ignore.

What should've been an absolutely raucous and no-holds-barred lusty farce is nothing but lame-ass, safe, predictable, lowest common denominator, no-laffs garbage

Plays like a slightly raunchier variation of the lackluster 1989 Mark Harmon comedy Worth Winning.

Two thirds of the movie is a winning wedding of romance and comedy, but the last one third crashes

For every robust zinger uncorked by Wilson or Vaughn, Dobkin chases it with a flat or tasteless gag.

Beyond the amusing shtick spotlighted in the ad campaign, the picture is a self-nullifying blend of raunch and schmaltz.

you know there's something wrong with a movie when Christopher Walken doesn't get, or give, even one funny line of dialogue.
