The Wedding Ringer

Critics Consensus

Kevin Hart and Josh Gad might be two great comedians that go great together, but there's little evidence of it on display in The Wedding Ringer.

Movie Info

Socially awkward Doug Harris (Josh Gad) is two weeks from marrying the gal (Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting) of his dreams, but he has a problem: He doesn't have any groomsmen for the occasion. Desperate and running out of time, Doug calls upon Jimmy Callahan (Kevin Hart), owner and operator of Best Man Inc., a company that provides attendants for friendless grooms. As Doug tries to pull off the con, a bromance unexpectedly blossoms between Jimmy and himself.

  • It manages to offend on so many levels that it's genuinely remarkable.

  • Puerile bromance ...

  • Hart is a very engaging and likeable comedian but this is only one of a number of absolute stinkers in which he has appeared in recent years.

  • Principally concerned with the indignities wrought on schlubby Josh Gad's gonads by, among other elements, chilli and hungry dogs.

  • The plot's old, the title's borrowed and the jokes are blue - but there's nothing remotely new in this wearying bromantic comedy.

    February 16, 2015 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Screenwriters Jeremy Garelick and Jay Lavender don't even try to make the premise seem plausible; rather, they use it as a springboard for screwball complications and verbal humor.

    Predictable yet entertaining.

    So much party and bullshit, and I mean that in the best way possible! A financially stable but friendship-challenged guy (who manages to put a ring on a hot blonde) enlists the ultimate, temporary friendship salesman. I'm not really familiar with Kevin Hart's stand-up, but he is rather excellent as Jimmy Callahan aka Bic Mitchum, the faux Best Man. He imbues all his toasts with off-the-cuff humor, crowd-pleasing meet-cutes, researched anecdotes, and unexpected poignancy. I want him as MY Best Man! Jimmy and Doug bonding through dance is hysterical, and the whole soundtrack is bumpin'. The septet of random groomsman is weird yet lovable, and Jimmy's flirtation with Alison, the bride's flinty sister (played by winsome Olivia Thirlby) is subtle and sweet. I was afraid Gretchen, the hot blonde, would just be a one-dimensional nice girl, but revealing her as a gold-digger is just as bad character development. Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting didn't really have any room to play with hot and bland, but maybe she could have played the gold-digger with a bit more sympathetic intention.

    A unexpected surprise which was funny and not overly smutty. Hart is quite good as a man who offers his friendship for a price and Gad plays the perfect comic foil very well. A perfect rental! 05-29-2015

    Lighthearted and fun, The Wedding Ringer is a formulaic goofball comedy with a fair amount of laughs. Unable to come up with any groomsmen for his wedding, Doug Harris turns to a small-time hustler who specializes in wedding services. Leads Kevin Hart and Josh Gad deliver solid performances, but the supporting cast is rather weak. Also, the comedy is uneven, as the raunchiness seems random and out of place. And the plot is full of clichés and stereotypes. Yet despite its weakness, The Wedding Ringer is still pretty entertaining.
