Movie Info

With the wedding of her younger sister (Amy Adams) fast approaching, Kat Ellis (Debra Messing) faces the undesirable prospect of traveling alone to London for the ceremony. While this is bad enough, Jeffrey (Jeremy Sheffield), the man who left her as they moved closer to marriage, happens to be the groom's best man. Determined to show everyone -- most of all Jeffrey -- that her romantic life is as full and thrilling as ever, Kat hires a charming male escort (Dermot Mulroney) as her date.

    Really good romantic comedy! Made me fall in love with Dermot Mulroney.

    "I'd rather fight with you than make love with anyone else." Plot: The story revolves around Kat, (Debra Messing) who plays the typical single New Yorker who is invited to her younger sister's wedding in London. What should be a joyous occasion bodes disaster for Kat, however, when she discovers that the best man will be none other than her ex-fiancé, who, two years before, inexplicably dumped her. In a desperate attempt to face the ordeal with dignity, she hires Dermot Mulroney (a male escort) to pose as her boyfriend and escort her to the wedding. Dermot Mulroney was a nice surprise - he managed to confer some of the sophisticated, suave yet mysterious and charming refinement his character required, and looked quite natural doing it. "The hardest thing is loving someone and then having the courage to let them love you back."

    I thought this movie was perfect if your looking for a lighthearted romantic comedy. It lifts your mood and leaves you with that warm fuzzy feeling when it ends. I really thought that the actors worked well together, and the script was smart and funny and really well put together. It doesn't really have a background serious motif, except that if you want something you really need to go out and get it, but some of the lines could be used as life- quotes or whatever if you really wanted to. Dermot's character is pretty interesting, and the stuff he says is basically true, when you think about it. Really, though, it's just your basic romantic comedy: fun to watch but easily forgotten.

    "Holy crap. You're worth every penny." Everyone's seen 'Pretty Woman', the film that made Julia Robert's lips the sexiest thing on earth back in 1990. In that movie, a man falls in love with a prostitute (or was it the other way around?) and you can say that love conquered all. But then again, that's like every teenagers fantasy... Falling in love with a hooker. Or is it? Enough of the bullshit and back to the topic. 'The Wedding Date' is like 'Pretty Woman' but the other way around. Here the man is an escort and the woman is the one paying for the services. But there's no lips of Julia nowhere to be seen. Debra Messing's character is on her way to her sister's (Amy Adams) wedding in England. Her former boyfriend is the bestman and there's like no way she's going there alone! You gotta like make the former one jealous. Dah. So the answer to her problems is the Yellow pages. Double Dah. Off to England and her messed up relationships there. But it's her luck that the male escort (Dermot Mulroney) is a charmer. Cupid's just around the corner... (SPOILER?) I just didn't get it. I guess I missed the part where people actually fell in love? Or was it even written in the film? It's just hard to imagine that a person would fall for a person who takes money for services like this. But then again I'm not that romantic. Was there a saying that the hooker's have a heart of gold or something? Debra Messing and Dermot Mulroney have a good chemistry, so it's a good thing and a necessity in a romantic comedy. I'm strictly straight but even I would've come in my pants if Mulroney's velvety rough voice would whisper softly in my ears and tease me by kissing... Did I actually write this? Well, enough with the "oh-I'm-trying-to-be-funny" shit. 'The Wedding Date' was enough of a good romcom to be seen once. I didn't understand the person's actions but it's not my genre. I'm not in to romantic comedies, even if Julia's lips would star in the movie. Some occasional funny scenes and two good leads. Worth a watch with female company.
