Critic Reviews for You May Not Kiss the Bride

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (4)

Its lunacy is well staged and fast-paced. Too bad the movie's premise is so lame that the nimbler moments can't redeem it.

Washington Post
Top Critic

The plotting just ends up feeling like a lot of business, ideas meant to keep the characters busy and in motion rather than actually reflecting anything like human behavior.

Surely, some Hollywood studio in the 1950s made a prototype of the sprightly if erratic comedy "You May Not Kiss the Bride."

Top Critic

It's refreshing for critics when movies like "You May Not Kiss the Bride" come along. We don't get to use words like "insipid" nearly enough.

A movie that never figures out a way to stitch together all of its incongruous elements.

Full Review… | November 1, 2012

The low-brow script leads the characters through one far-fetched scenario after another with few laughs along the way. But at least the scenery is nice.

Audience Reviews for You May Not Kiss the Bride

The beginning of this movie is silly fun and the ending is sappy and sweet - just skip the hour in the middle that everyone spends running around the very tiny island and you will find this to be very entertaining.

Was funny in the beginning and then start losing its touch. Had some stupid scenes. At least it had a happy ending.

★1/2 (out of four) Here is a plot that could only be concocted by the less than brilliant, but overly ambitious non-serious filmmakers that often circle ariund Hollywood. Everything about it feels fake - from its too-cute-for-words leads to its totally unbelievable comedy/thriller attempts. It is a mess. Dave Annable is Bryan, pet photographer who one day accidently allows a clients cat to get hurt by another client's dog. The cat owner is the wife of a Coatian mob boss. They decide to force Bryan to marry their daughter, Marsha (Katharine McPhee), before her VISA runs out. A coulple of less than professional FEDS are watching then and they follow the couple to Tahiti on their honeyoon. There the films makes a turn into a strange kidnapping plot. There is little chemistry between the leads and nothing in the plot that works. All the side characters are particularly annoying including: ROb Schneider, Mena Suvari, Kathy Bates, and Vinnie Jones.
