The Only Movie I've PAID to see more than once

by FCSN Daniel Masters, U.S. Navy on 11/4/2005

I'll be a little honest...there were times when, after seeing one movie, I would slip into another theater to watch another one without paying. Wedding Crashers, however, had me running back to the box office to buy two more tickets for that day, then to the bathrrom to wipe the tears of laughter from my face...and that was the second day that I saw it. Both Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn's performances were spectacular, not to mention funny as hell...the two had a chemistry rivaling that of the great comedic duos of the past & present, and they should DEFINITELY team up again. While Christopher Walken may not have had a predominantly solid role, his mere presence was more than enough. The rest of the cast (especially the grandmother...CLASSIC!!!) performed flawlessly, and made the story so believable, I'm thinkin' of crashing a wedding...or a funeral...myself! Read More

One of my all time favorites

by Mat on 1/3/2006

I saw this movie in the theaters twice and laughed even harder the second time. Vince Vaughn has amazing comedy timing and his fast paced delivery plays well off of Owen Wilsons slower, laid back comedy style. I have been waiting patiently for this to release on DVD and will probably wear the disc out. Read More

Product Overview

Wilder! Longer! Funnier! More footage and more laughs make this "Uncorked Edition" a "bust-a-gut, roll-in-the-aisle" (Maxim) comedy and the most raucous party of the year!

John Beckwith (Owen Wilson) and Jeremy Grey (Vince Vaughn), Washington D.C.'s top divorce mediators and lifelong best friends, have never met a wedding they couldn't charm their way into. Guided by a secret set of "wedding crashing rules," the pair attends a different wedding -- and romances different bridesmaids -- every week. But, when they crash the social event of the season, John falls for the daughter (Rachel McAdams) of an influential and eccentric politician (Christopher Walken) and decides to break the "rules" in pursuit of her love. What results is a wild weekend at her family's palatial estate where the ultimate "crashers" quickly find themselves in way over their heads!

Editors Note
Note Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn are an unbeatable combination as two Washington DC lawyers who get their kicks, and their girls, by crashing weddings. Displaying talent, wit, intelligence, and ample charm, the pair seldom fails at their mutual mission of seduction. But eventually they get bored with the routine. Everything explodes when they crash an upper-crust wedding given by US Senator William Cleary (Christopher Walken). Jeremy (Vaughn) makes the ostensible mistake of seducing Cleary's sexually ravenous daughter Gloria (Isla Fisher) and John (Wilson) falls head over heels for the beautiful, slightly sarcastic older sister, Claire (Rachel McAdams). But Claire is nearly engaged to a slimy, macho, ivy-league snob played with beady-eyed gusto by ALIAS's Bradley Cooper. The boys get lured away on a weekend trip to the Cleary's estate, which is when the film begins to resemble an early 1930s pre-code comedy with its innuendo-filled banter, eccentric grandmothers, suspicious rivals, and copious bed-hopping.^Vaughn's motor-mouth aggression plays off Wilson's irresistible sensitivity (and vice versa) to such perfection that they leave other contemporary romantic comedy teams in the dust. They manage to get plenty of laughs and warmth from their believably close male friendship without resorting to any clichéd homoerotic references. Their respective love interests are also outstanding, particularly McAdams who displays extraordinary wit and presence in addition to her stunning beauty. Walken is surprisingly low-key as the senator, tuning his usual craziness down to a few tensile stares. Seventies mini-series staple Jane Seymour is memorable as the senator's sex-starved, boozed-up wife, who makes a play for John.

ReviewSource James Berardinelli's ReelViews
Review During the first ten minutes of Wedding Crashers, we are treated to a display of the debauched antics that were staples in comedies of the late 1970s and 1980s. Alas, it's only a tease. Pretty soon, this movie settles into the comfortable groove of telling its story -- a by-the-numbers romantic comedy that's far too plot-heavy for its own good. The jokes become farther between and less funny as the filmmakers mistakenly believe that we in the audience actually care about the characters and their romantic entanglements. No cliche goes unmissed as the movie stumbles along its pre-determined trajectory. I'm not going to explicitly reveal the ending, but if you have seen more than one romantic comedy in your day, you'll know what's coming.

Review Sometimes a movie comedy just clicks. Welcome to one of those times. Wedding Crashers fires off big, fat, raucous laughs as if it had an endless supply. It doesn't. The film limps a bit in the final stretch like a wedding guest who knows how to party but doesn't know when to go home. A small price to pay for so much hot, rowdy fun.

Review Wedding Crashers is all runway and no takeoff. It assembles the elements for a laugh-out-loud comedy, but it can't make them fly. There are individual moments that are very funny. But it takes a merciless focus to make a good comedy, and the director, David Dobkin, has too much else on his mind. There are sequences involving Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson where you sense that the actors should have just broken into the cockpit and taken over the controls. There are few lonelier sights than a good comedian being funny in a movie that doesn't know what funny is.
