Wedding Crashers Movie Review | Plugged In
What's old is new again, kind of, in the amiably raunchy sex comedy "Wedding Crashers. The latest chapter in the endless movie epic about childish men and the women who mother them, this film basically presents an R-rated riff on the usual Mutt and Jeff, Hope and Crosby pairings, "The Road to Bootytown" for Maxim page-flippers. Credited to the screenwriters Steve Faber and Bob Fisher, and directed by David Dobkin, the film trumpets an amusingly tasteless premise: Mr. Wilson and Mr. Vaughn play John Beckwith and Jeremy Grey, Washington divorce mediators, who ritually embark on the smooth operator's version of big-game hunting. Armed with elaborate back stories they masquerade as fabulous successes and equally baroque rules, the two attend the nuptials of complete strangers specifically to pick up women, the idea being that tears and booze will have critically weakened such quarries' defenses. The movie takes off at the opening of the new wedding season, with the guys revving up for 17 ceremonies and potentially twice the number of boudoir kills.
Go comatose for me, baby. I saw it and liked it! It was the highest-grossing comedy of , topping vastly more expensive box-office rivals like Batman Begins , Charlie and the Chocolate Factory , and Mr. But despite its massive success, Wedding Crashers never got a sequel.
It's known as "Hollywood magic" for a reason. Moviegoers want to be transported by what they're watching. Unfortunately, thanks to careful edits and image-savvy stars, that's not always the case.
