There are times when the movie's contrivance is agonizing.

Occasionally so inept and embarrassing that it's almost physically painful to sit through.

Disappointing would-be romantic comedy with innuendo.

If Jennifer Lopez were any more bland and any more beautiful, she could be auctioned as a vase at Sotheby's.

My Best Friend's Wedding is about as good as this type of movie could possibly be, and The Wedding Planner is half as good, so you can do the math.

This is a romantic comedy in a broad farce's clothing, and it doesn't fit worth a darn.

It's as if the tone is at war with the content. Bright and bubbly, it endlessly chronicles bad behavior spun toward the positive.

The Wedding Planner is a bit of fluff, but fluff can be entertaining taken in light doses.

The film is just plain stupid, consisting of ridiculous, random setups designed to get our star-crossed lovers intertwined, with an inevitable punch line to pay it all off.

This review is one of the harshest I've ever written and I can feel myself only getting meaner.

Su complaciente y sentimentaloide final termina por fastidiar una historia que de por sí ya tenía problemas.

It's a modestly successful romantic comedy, much like those old-fashioned fluff films of yesterday.

Although Lopez projects her usual charisma here, McConaughey seems as out of place as Will Rogers playing Rhett Butler.

Lopez and McConaughey aren't the kind of pairing that makes you think these two fit.

I suggest you RSVP in the negative to this Wedding invitation.

A little more coarseness, or at least some originality, might have helped the jokes, which barely rise to the level of might-see TV.
