Wedding Crashers (2005 Film) Review

I've heard of Wedding Crashers for quite a few years now. I've never been the biggest fans of Vince Vaughn or Owen Wilson, mainly because they always seem to be about the same character in every movie they are ever in. But Wedding Crashers was pretty well received by critics and regular folks, so I knew I'd eventually get around to seeing it.
The story is about two friends, John Beckwith and Jeremy Grey. They both work with couples in divorce settlements, however in their free time they like to crash weddings to people they either hardly know or don't even know at all. Both of them aren't thinking of getting married, but John's old friend Chazz Reinhold taught him that it was ridiculously easy to pick up women at weddings. Chazz was right as they usually always complete their mission, even though they aren't do very well in the morality department. 
However at a wedding, Jeremy falls for a girl named Claire Cleary who may be the only "normal" person in her family. For example, Claire's sister Gloria Cleary is wild and crazy and she seems to really want John to be her eventual husband, to his horror. However Jeremy can't do much with Claire as she has a rather psycho boyfriend named Sack Lodge. Jeremy is quite charming and beloved by most of the family, however with all the lies the two have told, will Jeremy even win the hand of Claire? 
Overall I liked Wedding Crashers about as well I as expected. Besides my very mild dislike of the two main stars, I did like most of the rest of the cast. It's a good comedy but not one of my favorites. It's got a lot of silly humor but it's well-done so it's not comedy just for the toilet bowl. It's got a lot of good moments, but the laughs do go up and down overall. It's hard to say if this is going to be a comedy that will endure the decades or not, but we will have to see. 

Score: B

  5. Sometimes, it's okay to plug your brain in to the TV and just enjoy.
    No Masterpiece Theater, to be sure, but stupid, harmless fun.

  7. For me, it's one of those loud, obnoxious buddy movies that was okay seeing one time.

  10. Yep- I think a B rating is more than fair. I found it to be a bit silly and contrived...but it was okay.

  11. I'm a fan of Vince Vaughn more so than Owen Wilson, but I like their movies in most instances. Wedding Crashers is a movie I've seen and laughed about probably 7 or 8 times. Being a past practical joker, I like the idea of being able to fool people into thinking you're on the guest list for a wedding. That's probably the main reason I keep watching this.(lol) It's kind of like calling in to a job that you've never worked at to say you're sick, just to see what happens.I saw that on a meme a little while ago. Glad you enjoyed the movie more than you thought you would. Hugs...RO
