Wedding Crashers Reviews

April 10, 2012
Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson are enormously funny.
May 21, 2011
Sharply honed, if often raunchy.

It's good, but it's no Anchorman.
September 26, 2005
Sadly, in spite of its cast and seemingly can't-miss premise, Wedding Crashers is at its best a succession of mild chuckles.
July 28, 2005
Sometimes a movie comedy just clicks. Welcome to one of those times.

The most exhilarating entertainment to emerge this year from the failed, forlorn factory town of Hollywood, largely because of Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn, the best high-low comedy team since the hey-hey days of Paul Newman and Robert Redford.
July 18, 2005
It produces more laughs per minute than any film so far this year.
July 18, 2005
Sometimes ten per cent of your brain is just enough.
July 17, 2005
This crude and unabashedly cynical flick is the most uproarious Hollywood comedy since "Meet the Parents."

Wedding Crashers may be the most optimistic Hollywood comedy of the year, because it restores at least some dim hope that directors, writers and actors with actual brains in their heads can somehow triumph over unimaginative studio execs.
July 15, 2005
Lung-bloatingly funny.
July 15, 2005
The film's pleasures are greatly outnumbered by its failed expectations.

There's no reason why this movie shouldn't have worked: it's got a funny premise, a talented cast and an obviously lavish budget. But it lands without even a crash; just a dull, unfunny thud.

Why do so many contemporary comedies feel obliged to make room for heartwarming life lessons? Isn't it enough just to make people laugh?

Targeting adults means smarter material, if you get the right script, and writers Steve Faber and Bob Fisher have a nice ear for the funnier things that make us human.

OK, so I chuckled and had a decent enough time, but I was expecting the most inspired comedy of summer.

It's a combination of the kind of go-for-it comedies Hollywood routinely made before the PG-13 rating became a symbol as opposed to a standard targeting the widest, blandest possible audience, and sexy romantic comedy.

It's a pretty lousy movie with some funny parts.

July 15, 2005
The script by Steve Faber and Bob Fisher is one of those high-speed, ping-pong-banter marvels in which you're still laughing from the last great line when you're hit by the next.
July 15, 2005
If a film is going to be in bad taste, at least it should have the decency to follow through on its convictions, rather than morph into something else.

The funniest movie of the summer.

Beyond the amusing shtick spotlighted in the ad campaign, the picture is a self-nullifying blend of raunch and schmaltz.

The flick brings two hours of great big sloppy buck-wild laughs by morphing into a cross between Meet the Parents and Some Like It Hot.

July 15, 2005
Through most of it, there is a wonderful comic energy, boosted by a near-perfect selection of songs, and it even manages to show a little heart without bringing the jocular affair to an abrupt halt.

These Wedding Crashers are not for kids. For grown-ups who like their humor rutting and smart, however, they're unexpected but welcome guests.

No one's going to mistake it for a major piece of cinema, but it's the rare person who won't find themselves consistently laughing aloud . This is one reception you won't want to miss.

Wedding Crashers has something borrowed, a lot that's blue, something old and not much new.

July 15, 2005
The film starts out quirky, but settles for the routine. And characters, instead of deepening, flatten out.
July 15, 2005
The antidote to Hollywood's recent string of refried plots and allegorical disasters. Boldly, it embraces what too few big movies have this summer: fun.

Crashers slumps badly in the stretch when the filmmakers have to find a way to surprise us when we're fully aware of where the story is going.

John and Jeremy may be damaged, manipulative, emotionally stunted frat boys with mouths like truckers, but they have a sentimental streak a mile wide.

Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson star in this amiably raunchy sex comedy as two cut-rate Lotharios who attend weddings specifically to pick up women.

July 14, 2005
It's often dirty, yes. But it's also manic and inspired.
July 14, 2005
The extended reception sequences are superbly done, and Vaughn and Wilson are at their best when they're being false and winning at the same time.

When funny people don't censor themselves, funny things happen. Wedding Crashers knows this, and as a result it's one heck of a party.

July 14, 2005
An insipid romance, with some of the funniest guys in Hollywood squandered on gay jokes, a foul-mouthed grandmother and a checklist of family dysfunction.

Hopelessly raunchy, helplessly romantic, and wickedly, wickedly funny.

There are individual moments that are very funny. But it takes a merciless focus to make a good comedy, and the director, David Dobkin, has too much else on his mind.

Vaughn, Owen and McAdams form a perfect three-way union.

Even with Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn doing all they can to keep us entertained, this farce starts to run out of steam as soon as the writers start to run out of jokes.

July 14, 2005
[Plays] like an only slightly less benign spin on the tiresome fish-out-of-water farce that fueled the two Meet the Parents movies.
July 14, 2005
Under all the raunchiness, Crashers is actually sort of a sweet movie. And at its best, it perfectly channels the winning personalities of Wilson and Vaughn.

These guys are so perfectly matched, you only wonder why it took so long.

What we learn is that the pairing of Vaughn and Wilson is a success to do a matchmaker proud.

Amiable and hollow.
July 7, 2005
Wedding Crashers' real secret is that despite flashes of nudity, crudity and mockery of women's raging hormones at the first sight of a trousseau, at its core it's just a big pushover with the heart of a chick flick.
