Its manner is as light as wedding cake frosting and its lead performances are as poised as the bride and groom at the top of the cake.

An old-fashioned romantic comedy about a career woman who has to choose whether or not to follow her heart.

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.

It's made with care, which sets it apart from most recent movies of this ilk.

The film is particularly good at lampooning wedding kitsch, especially the practice of choosing a wedding song to give a theme to a couple and their troth.

Considering how the Silicon Valley boom has made this the most romantic of cities also the most expensive, you have to admire The Wedding Planner for sustaining the ultimate fairy tale.

If you liked that film with Julia Roberts and Dermot Mulroney, you're sure to feel at home at this one with Jennifer Lopez and Matthew McConaughey.

On its own flyweight terms, The Wedding Planner is an appealing movie.

Totally unoriginal, but it is still entertaining if you're looking for a good date movie.

A good-spirited, romantic comedy with an almost child-like innocence, the movie sweeps you off your feet and puts you in the mood for laughter and love.

Disappointing would-be romantic comedy with innuendo.

Not so much a movie than just another tool in the entertainment-world-domination plot concocted by the burgeoning, big-butt-blessed multimedia phenomenon nicknamed J. Lo.
