Wedding Crashers
A Movie Review

MPAA Rated - R

It's 1:59 Long

A Review by
The Dude on the Right
First I would like to pray…

"Thank you God for not intervening and making the movie folks for ‘Wedding Crashers’ decide they needed to clean up the film so it could get a PG-13 rating, even though they supposedly told Senator John McCain that the movie would be rated PG-13. I realize there are probably some things in the movie that might be offensive to you, but I’m guessing you had your hands full helping some baseball players get a couple of homeruns, a bunch of singers getting their songs right, and I’m pretty sure you’re still trying to figure out the Christian folks who want to ban abortion yet think the death penalty is a good thing. I know we’re a nutty group down here, you know, killing in the name of religion and all, but I just wanted to thank you for letting a very funny movie be made. Amen."

Now let’s get to "Wedding Crashers." Here’s the story…

Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson are divorce mediators, Jeremy and John respectively. We get introduced to them as they are trying to work a divorcing couple through a tough time in how to split the airline miles. But John and Jeremy are in happy mode now because of the change of season – it is now wedding season. As it is, Jeremy has learned from the master, Chaz, the art of crashing weddings and scoring with the ladies. He has now teamed with John because, well, Chaz had gotten even a little too weird for Jeremy and John is his best friend. The season is going swimmingly, as our heroes go from wedding to wedding, bedding many a beauty. But the season is coming to an end, yet there is one more wedding to crash, the wedding of all weddings, as the daughter of the Secretary of the Treasury is getting married. The Secretary of the Treasury in this case happens to be played by Christopher Walken.

Low and behold, and wouldn’t you know it, the boys get into the church, and each ends up setting their sites on two of the other daughters of the Secretary, namely Gloria (Isla Fisher) and Claire (Rachel McAdams). Jeremy works his magic on Gloria, meanwhile John is smitten with Claire from the minute she walks down the isle as a bridesmaid. Jeremy works quickly, only to find that Gloria is more of a stalker, but John finds trouble when he finds out Claire has a boyfriend. But John is different this time, falling for Claire, whereas Jeremy is done and just wants to get out of Dodge. Jeremy, though, being the good friend and unable to leave a fellow crasher, sticks it out even as they find themselves invited to Dad’s for the weekend, and having some issues with his socks.

Yea, you can probably figure out how things end up, the impending friends hating each other, the cameo you would expect, and everyone ending up happily ever after. And you know what, you probably won’t care because for a couple of hours you’ve been laughing your ass off.

Look, with Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson, you know what kind of laughs to expect, and they are all over this film. From the opening scenes with them working with the divorcing couple, to their antics at the weddings, to being stuck at the Secretary’s pad for the weekend, to the last scene, to the blatant nudity, to the gay son, to Vince insisting he keep the painting, this movie is a laugh riot.

I won’t go into this any more; if you liked the trailer you’ll probably love the movie. If you found the concept revolting, you’ll hate the movie even more. For me it will be hard to top this in terms of a comedy this year, and this one vaulted quickly into my top ten comedy movies of all time. 5 stars out of 5 for "Wedding Crashers." I haven’t laughed that hard during a movie in a long time, and again, I’d like to thank God for it.

That’s it for this one! I’m The Dude on the Right!! L8R!!!
