It's a shame that Robin Williams continues to take roles that exploit and water down his talent.

Somewhere along the way, somebody should have pulled this License, at least until the writers found funnier stuff for everybody to do.

I would honestly rather watch the Holocaust In Colour than sit through this again.

No matter how hard I try, I'm finding it difficult to write anything positive about License to Wed. This movie is bad from top to bottom, front to back, and start to finish.

If for any reason your wife or girlfriend - or both - try to drag you to this thing, break up with them instead. It would be less painful.

A blitzed-looking man stumbling out of a screening of this dreadful excuse for unromantic comedy volunteered that the best part of the movie was when Robin Williams got socked in the jaw. Couldn't agree more...

The trials Ben and Sadie go through are nothing compared to the obstacle course inflicted on the audience, who has to work very hard to find anything entertaining or enjoyable.

You'd never know from License to Wed that Krasinski is a big asset to The Office. Here, playing an unappealing male lead, he merely smugs his way through the assignment.

Comedies don't get much lamer than License to Wed. Working from a flawed premise with characters lacking credibility and plot turns more moronic than funny, the movie flatlines in about five minutes.

Two up-and-coming stars get left at the cinematic altar.

Another by-the-books exercise in formula romantic comedies ... no surprises and no real reason to have to subject yourself to this.

It used to be annoying when Robin Williams insisted on wrecking comedies with his overbearing shtick. Now, it's just sad and pathetic.

The only amusing thing about License to Wed is the idea that it's supposed to be funny in the first place.

Looks like Robin Williams has replaced Cuba Gooding, Jr. as the kiss of death on the set of any comedy.

One of the year's worst comedies, and in a year that has already contained 'Norbit' and 'Wild Hogs,' that's saying something.

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.

Sadly, License to Wed lived up to my expectations 100%. That is to say, it was unfunny and uninspired.

It makes marriage look like the biggest mistake of all time, and the multiplex a prison from which there is no escape.

You know you're in trouble when the outtakes during the end credits are the best part.

Williams doing his bad boy standup comic cleric routine with relish, can be counted as performing an act of salvation on a movie desperately in need of such not quite divine intervention.
