An epic comic miscalculation.

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.

The Wedding Date presents the curious case of two appealing performances surviving a bombardment of schlock.

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

Why Kat must be so emotionally clueless or her sister so selfish is a mystery that invites an essay about what women think of each other these days.

All the romantic comedy gloss in the world can't save a script as stale as last week's wedding cake.

There's no cliché from any romantic comedy of the past twenty years that this movie isn't afraid to borrow, water down, and then recycle.

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

Yearn, dammit! the movie screams at you, as you turn your eyes to the wristwatch and lament that, like Kat, you've just wasted your money.

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

Messing-Mulroney romantic comedy has "something borrowed" in its plot -- and a sense of missed opportunity that'll leave you blue.

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?

It's all the actors can do to race through their lines before their gag reflexes kick in.

Mulroney contributes virtually nothing save a convincing profile and makes the transition to lover-for-life feel about as shallow as a single-tiered wedding cake.

A distillation of so many rom-com formulas and conventions it's hard to know whether the filmmakers even realized what they were actually doing.

Directed with muddled confusion, the movie goes through its stock characters and obligatory plot points without enthusiasm or charm.

Trite, but, Dermot Mulroney, I took an exit poll. You are definitely worth the extra three hundred.

Surprisingly adapted from a novel, Date is saccharine, uninspired entertainment, eventually collapsing into a flat-out mess.

I refuse to believe that there's anyone on the planet, starved enough for romantic affection, that they'd find something likable about this movie.
