Critic Reviews for The Wedding Date
Nothing says true love like a movie about a desperate, neurotic woman who hires a male whore to take her to her sister's wedding so she can make the ex-fiance jealous. I wonder if they have a Vermont Teddy Bear for that?
This is a charmless, lifeless affair that had me leaving the theater in a mood more appropriate to a funeral than a wedding.
Clare Kilner's cast frolics in the countryside in an appropriately British-romantic-comedy fashion, and at times the characters trade silly snaps, but Dana Fox's screenplay is structurally shaky.
Mulroney is a stealth actor: Whenever you see him in a picture, you're not just reminded of how good he almost always is -- you have the sense of discovering it for the first time.
Admittedly, no part of the year is immune to bad romantic comedies. But what distinguishes The Wedding Date, what qualifies it so impeccably for turkey season, goes way beyond generic foulness.
Like a bridal shower, it's probably more fun if you have some champagne first. Perhaps some enterprising theater manager will consider this.
Audience Reviews for The Wedding Date
Starts off well but goes off the boil once the setting changes to England. Debra Messing puts in a good performance and looks great, but it can't save the story. Its also strange that she has gone "home" for the Wedding of her sister, yet sounds totally American. I guess she couldn't do the accent. I've actually read the book this is based on, and that wasn't fantastic either. I had forgotten Amy Adams was in this one. Not actually the best role I have seen her in - she plays blonde and yucky here. Not sure exactly what fails with this movie. Think it's just a dud storyline and unconvincing.
Really good romantic comedy! Made me fall in love with Dermot Mulroney.
Kat (Debra) is looking for a date for her sister's wedding so she hires an escort to make her ex jealous. Some secrets are revealed at the wedding and things get complicated with the escort. Good cast and good storyline. I'd kill the sister!
