Clever lines, chic sets, appropriately incorporated cloying songs, and a sympathetic Debra Messing keep the film enjoyable.

With blinders on to deflect the obvious - that this movie isn't remotely believable - The Wedding Date skates by on the charm of its actors.

"The Wedding Date" is slight and it knows it. It has no pretentions. It's an odd little fairy tale about a single woman and her paid stud. Messing is a movie star.

Laudably manages to avoid the inherent sordidness of "Pretty Woman" and the underlying sadness of "My Best Friend's Wedding."

This was a fun film that told a good story without getting ridiculous like some of these have been in the past.

The Wedding Date is a manfest extravaganza and for that I salute it!

Aimed squarely at the single-and-over-35 demographic, The Wedding Date is a guilty pleasure that is perfect for a girls' night out.

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.

A bit like cheap champagne: It's better if you revel in its bubbly fizz and don't think about the finish.

Although the trappings are familiar, writer Dana Fox has contributed a lean but clever script, and director Clare Kilner keeps the story moving.

This particular wedding-cake walk does feature the excellent comedic timing of Debra Messing and the charm and sex appeal of Dermot Mulroney, which will likely combine to make this film a hit with the date crowd.

The Wedding Date's ending is one of the most contrived in recent memory...

As predictable as a church ceremony and witless as the pastor's blessings, leaving one to ponder this wedding's "reception."

While there are many of the right ingredients here -- a likable cast, plot potential, a dreamy English countryside setting -- I still can't say "I do" to this fluffy flick.
| Original Score: 1.5/4

A dupla principal até que se esforça (principalmente Mulroney, que vem se especializando neste tipo de personagem), mas o roteiro repleto de clichês frustra suas tentativas.
| Original Score: 2/5
