The Wedding Planner Reviews

Page 2 of 6
January 29, 2001
This is a romantic comedy in a broad farce's clothing, and it doesn't fit worth a darn.
Full Review | Original Score: C-
January 29, 2001
If ever there was proof that a script can by typed without an opposable thumb, this is it.
January 26, 2001
Combines a poorly written script and actors who, together, have no magnetism at all.

January 26, 2001
Jennifer Lopez and Matthew McConaughey have no chemistry. None.
January 26, 2001
If Jennifer Lopez were any more bland and any more beautiful, she could be auctioned as a vase at Sotheby's.
January 26, 2001
This film gives love a bad name.
January 26, 2001
So insipid, so willfully bland, that it will probably need no nips, tucks, trims or bleeps to be ready for flight play.
January 26, 2001
The work of la Lopez, who is as gifted as she is gorgeous, and by McConaughey, a dreamboat when he's at ease, is more than compensatory.

If you took My Best Friend's Wedding, showed it to a bunch of kids and then asked them to make the same film, they might come up with something like The Wedding Planner.
January 26, 2001
What begins as a clever sendup of the impersonal and contentious nature of matrimony devolves into a movie filled with forced tenderness.
January 26, 2001
The film's many flat, forced attempts at physical and verbal comedy are pretty tiresome.
January 26, 2001
A pastiche of secondhand ideas gleaned from watching Best Friend's Wedding.
January 26, 2001
A series of contrivances, coincidences, and cliches, all set to a musical score.
January 26, 2001
The script by Pamela Falk and Michael Ellis is so grindingly predictable every step of the way that it's cumulatively numbing, and finally sleep inducing.

January 26, 2001
It's made with care, which sets it apart from most recent movies of this ilk.
January 26, 2001
Shankman plods through this forced merriment, substituting stunning locations and pastel wardrobes for real romance.
January 26, 2001
A particularly vapid and predictable little romantic bit of cinematic fluff.
January 26, 2001
Works oh-so-hard to make everyone in it oh-so-likable that at times the audience is going to feel oh-so-nauseated.
January 26, 2001
Too often it comes up with sappiness where it needs sass.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
January 26, 2001
A lost cause that thinks rowdiness can compensate for a story that just plain doesn't make sense.
