Critic Reviews for The Wedding Date

All Critics (146) | Top Critics (40)

As stale as last week's wedding cake.

Common Sense Media

As predictable as a church ceremony and witless as the pastor's blessings, leaving one to ponder this wedding's "reception."

Film Journal International

While there are many of the right ingredients here -- a likable cast, plot potential, a dreamy English countryside setting -- I still can't say "I do" to this fluffy flick.

Christianity Today

A dupla principal até que se esforça (principalmente Mulroney, que vem se especializando neste tipo de personagem), mas o roteiro repleto de clichês frustra suas tentativas.

Cinema em Cena

The main problem with the film is that it seems to be missing a sequence where we see Kat and Nick actually falling for each other - the script pretty much expects us to take it for granted just because they're the leads.

As forgettable as a Hollywood couple's marriage vows.

Audience Reviews for The Wedding Date

Starts off well but goes off the boil once the setting changes to England. Debra Messing puts in a good performance and looks great, but it can't save the story. Its also strange that she has gone "home" for the Wedding of her sister, yet sounds totally American. I guess she couldn't do the accent.
I've actually read the book this is based on, and that wasn't fantastic either.
I had forgotten Amy Adams was in this one. Not actually the best role I have seen her in - she plays blonde and yucky here. Not sure exactly what fails with this movie. Think it's just a dud storyline and unconvincing.

Really good romantic comedy! Made me fall in love with Dermot Mulroney.

Kat (Debra) is looking for a date for her sister's wedding so she hires an escort to make her ex jealous. Some secrets are revealed at the wedding and things get complicated with the escort. Good cast and good storyline. I'd kill the sister!
