The Wedding Date Reviews

Lori Hoffman
Atlantic City Weekly

With blinders on to deflect the obvious - that this movie isn't remotely believable - The Wedding Date skates by on the charm of its actors.

Denton Record Chronicle (TX)

It takes about 10 minutes to figure out every major plot twist in this cheap-looking romp involving a collection of obnoxiously quirky characters.

Even some much needed logic wouldn't have been able to save this awful mess.

Unlike Pretty Woman, and most other successful romances, we have absolutely NO reason to understand why EITHER of these empty vessels would EVER find themselves attracted to the other.

Thomas Peyser
Style Weekly (Richmond, VA)

Glides along with the unself-conscious assurance of a deodorant commercial, confident that the presence of attractive actors in gowns and tuxes will sanction any idiocy.

"The Wedding Date" is slight and it knows it. It has no pretentions. It's an odd little fairy tale about a single woman and her paid stud. Messing is a movie star.

Movie Boeuf

Laudably manages to avoid the inherent sordidness of Pretty Woman and the underlying sadness of My Best Friend's Wedding.

Nothing says true love like a movie about a desperate, neurotic woman who hires a male whore to take her to her sister's wedding so she can make the ex-fiance jealous. I wonder if they have a Vermont Teddy Bear for that?

The first problem The Wedding Date runs into is that the whole "converting a hooker" fantasy skews mainly male.

Advocate (Baton Rouge, LA)

Part romantic comedy, part soap opera, part travelogue, The Wedding Date fails to deliver on all counts.

San Antonio Express-News

One wedding. No funerals. A pretty woman. Lots of borrowed somethings, but nothing new.

You could call this horrid romantic comedy One Wedding and a Funeral, with stress on the funeral.

This is a charmless, lifeless affair that had me leaving the theater in a mood more appropriate to a funeral than a wedding.

A great excuse for staying single.

To say that the script is bottom-of-the-barrel would be too kind; this one was already decomposing under a mountain of mulch before Debra Messing unwisely fished it out.

Clare Kilner's cast frolics in the countryside in an appropriately British-romantic-comedy fashion, and at times the characters trade silly snaps, but Dana Fox's screenplay is structurally shaky.

'The Wedding Date' doesn't exactly resurrect romantic comedy, but it proves there's still life in the genre.

Following this botched ceremony, anyone fond of Debra Messing and Dermot Mulroney will be left standing at the altar in tears.

Shouldn't romantic comedies be a little more romatic? Or maybe at least likable?

Perhaps the movie should have been called "Four Bridesmaids and a Hookah."
