Wedding Crashers starring Vince Vaughn, Owen Wilson, Rachel McAdams, Bradey Cooper and Christopher Walken
Finally, a movie that shows how fun weddings can be. Yes, I have a confession to make. I am a girl, and I am a romantic but I absolutely detest weddings. I dodge every wedding my parents try to drag me to (even though I was childhood friends with the brides or grooms). When they try to suggest “But no one will come to your wedding if you keep doing this.” And I go “Promise?”
I am not fond of weddings because let’s face it, hardly any wedding we are invited to is organized by someone with money, taste and a good sense of fun. It is not like Nicole Kidman invited me to her wedding and I turned her down. Weddings usually involve weird relatives you wish you never knew, friends of your parents that you couldn’t care less about, awful music and equally awful food. The result is never worth the effort or actually going there. Obviously I’ll not run away when my best friends get married but that’s where I drive the line.
But I have to admit, watching Wedding Crashers was so much fun and I probably wouldn’t mind crashing them if I had pals like Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson’s characters. Jeremy and John. I may not be after bridesmaids, but it would sure be fun to meet single men and fool around. As for the plot:
John (Wilson) and Jeremy (Vaughn) work together and have been friends for a long time. When the wedding season comes, they go to weddings, pretend to be some friend or relative of either bride or groom’s and just join the party. They meet lots of hot, single women who are extra horny and not being bad-looking guys, the duo manage to score every time.
They make up a different back story every time and have a blast. However, at the latest wedding, something goes horribly wrong: John meets and falls for one of the bridesmaids- Claire (Rachel McAdams). By this time Jeremy is dying to get rid of the other bridesmaid, Claire’s clingy sister Gloria (Isla Fisher). However John is not deterred, even when he meets Claire’s boyfriend Zach (Bradley Cooper). So he gets himself invited to the family’s house where the real hilarity begins with the weird gay brother, slutty mother (Jane Seymour), Zach’s bullying and Gloria’s puppy behavior towards Jeremy….
This movie is one of the most fun romantic comedies ever. It is mostly funny than romantic and I love the cast. Claire’s father is played by the ever-awesome Christopher Walken, Bradley is really good as the baddie and I just cracked up at every scene of Vaughn and Wilson. It is R rated, so it won’t be for everyone but it is a very funny ride all around. It even has an equally hilarious cameo by Will Ferrell.
7.2 ON IMDB. Well, generally speaking, and including all genres, I agree. But if we have to compare with other comedies, I dare give it an 8.0.
