Certain formula-driven romantic comedies reach a point where the audience realizes it won't be much fun watching the main character get his way. Nor will it be much fun watching him get his comeuppance. This is not where you want your audience.
No chemistry, no sparks, no laughs. A story that's recycled, inane, and unbelievable. A preposterously lazy finale. Yep, all the components are there for this to be the worst romantic comedy of the year.
The tension between the leads is almost lost in the white noise of vindictive bridesmaids, fussy future in-laws and one too many dirty sex jokes, leading right up to the oh-so-predictable grand finale.
The plotting ranges from predictable to ridiculous and with the exception of a handful of laugh-out-loud moments, Dempsey's frequent shirtlessness is the film's main appeal. The rest is as unpalatable as stale wedding cake.
The dialogue can be summarized thusly: Hannah's female friends go, "Awww!" 'Eeeeee!' and 'Oooooh!' And Tom's friends say things such as, 'Any time is the right time to say I love you!' You'll be ready to retch even before Act 2.
