Review Romantic comedies sell fantasy. Ultimately, that's their reason for being - to make even the most cynical heart crave true love. Some romantic comedies, this one included, fail because of an inability to convince the audience that the protagonists deserve to live happily ever after. There's a simple romantic comedy litmus test. Ask this question: By the time the moment of decision arrives, are we rooting for these two to be together? Is their union, inevitable though it may be in a movie world where formula is valued over all else, the only path to a satisfying ending? Sadly, for Made of Honor, with its drawn-out, poorly developed love affair and paper thin characters, the answer is no. We expect the two leads to end up together - not because they inspire us to quote sonnets but because that's how we have been conditioned. I like it when a movie seduces me; this one doesn't...Most of the humor in Made of Honor is tepid, but that's not unusual for a romantic comedies. Unless someone like Judd Apatow is involved, movies in this genre are more interested in melting hearts than busting guts. Made of Honor does neither. The movie is being touted as "counterprogramming" for Iron Man, but this amounts to providing a stale, unremarkable alternative to something that's surprisingly fresh and energetic. Made of Honor is a prefabricated example of shoddy workmanship.

Review Tom (Patrick Dempsey) had one good idea in college. He invented the coffee collar, that cardboard ring that fits around a cup and keeps a customer's hand from burning...Much like Tom, the romantic comedy Made of Honor has one good idea, and here it is: Hannah asks Tom to be her maid of honor in a bit of a gender switch, giving the conniving lothario two weeks (for some reason, weddings in tepid screenplays such as this always happen in two weeks) to disrupt the nuptials and win his dream girl back...Let's acknowledge a few things right off the bat. First, Dempsey's incredibly popular with the ladies. His female fan base has swelled thanks to his work as Dr. McDreamy on the smash hit Grey's Anatomy. Based on the (unsolicited) feedback I received from female readers and co-workers, Dempsey is to women what Miley Cyrus is to teenage girls. If the two ever met in a movie, the film would potentially outgross Titanic...The screenplay recycles tired cliches and director Paul Weiland (Leonard Part 6) contentedly settles on the easiest jokes. (A gag involving a sassy grandmother and a glow-in-the-dark sex toy gets used three separate times.) At least Dempsey and Monaghan beam like 100-watt bulbs as they make the most of the formulaic material. They're both able to walk away from this with their honor intact.
