August 10, 2007
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.

Going to this movie is at least a more enjoyable way to spend the Fourth of July weekend than participating in the Coney Island hot-dog eating contest.

It's highly amusing and its cast is extremely persuasive, playing the kind of roles that kill most careers: genuinely nice people.
July 3, 2007
A pleasant enough diversion for anyone who likes their comedies as light and fluffy as their popcorn.

Krasinski affirms that he can carry more than a desk job on The Office, and Moore plays straight gal in a film that improves, at least, on her last role in the ugh-inducing Because I Said So. License to Wed doesn't fail her this time.

For all the Hollywood obviousness of the reassuring ending, [director] Kwapis and his writers put over the subversive message that marriage can be maddening.

[Krasinski and Moore] have bankable chemistry, and it allows License to float along for longer than you'd think possible.

June 30, 2007
A droll, amusing cautionary tale about the chances of living "happily ever after" - and wait for the zany outtakes during the final credits.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10

The dull romance between Sadie and Ben is revealed as little more than a prop for the comedian's patented schtick.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
June 7, 2013
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.
November 3, 2012
I would honestly rather watch the Holocaust In Colour than sit through this again.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
July 6, 2010
It's enough to make anybody squirm.
October 18, 2008
It's a bit short of laughs, but there are a few cute ideas in this formulaic, predictable romantic comedy.
August 25, 2008
Sadly, License to Wed lived up to my expectations 100%. That is to say, it was unfunny and uninspired.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/10
October 31, 2007
Predictable wedding comedy is all about Williams.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
October 24, 2007
You know it's bad when there are more interesting things happening during the outtakes in the closing credits than in the movie itself.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/10
September 12, 2007
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.
