The Wedding Date
Every chick flick has at least one buff guy showing off his bare chest and the ladies will not be disappointed with the romantic comedy, The Wedding Date. It’s been two years since Kat Ellis (Debra Messing) has been dumped by her boy friend Jeffrey (Jeremy Sheffield). She’s been invited to London for her sister Amy’s (Amy Adams) wedding where Jeffrey is the Best Man. In order to impress Jeffrey and her friends and family, she hires a top notch male escort named Nick (Dermot Mulroney) for six thousand dollars to pose as her boyfriend at the wedding. (I obviously couldn’t see him, but I still think she paid about five thousand nine hundred and ninety dollars too much.) When they first arrive in London, Kat is hesitant to trust Nick (they sleep in the same bed but she has pillows stacked between them) yet they soon become attracted to each other. Of course, before the story has a happy ending we find out about the sordid relationship between Kat, Jeffrey, Amy and her fiancé Ed (Jack Davenport). This film tries to rip-off other wedding movies and it still doesn’t have any real laughs. There is no chemistry between the two lead actors and without a good script, Mulroney is just a 185 pound slug. Nothing makes sense in this movie and at barely an hour and a half it didn’t make sense for me to drive to the theater, order popcorn, a drink, and try to find a seat; all of which are hard for a blind guy to do by himself. This film is so lame I’m giving it a D rating.
This movie has been given a PG-13 rating by the MPAA
Although I am blind, I can appreciate a good movie as well as sighted individuals.
I rely more on a good story line than special effects.
