In this romantic comedy, two divorce mediators (Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson) enjoy spending their weekends crashing weddings in order to meet women. They are armed with an arsenal of crashing rules taught to them by a master conman (Will Ferrell) — entertaining children with balloon art, fake tears and other attention-drawing techniques — that enable them to pass as invited guests while becoming the hit at every reception. Their goal is to be irresistible to women. When the two crash a biggie, one of them falls for the engaged daughter (Rachel McAdams) of a high-ranking politician (Christopher Walken) and his unfaithful wife (Jane Seymour). After the wedding, they continue their charade at the home of the bride’s parents. After meeting this eccentric family, their secret identities are discovered, threatening their plan and their lives.
Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson’s antics can elicit laughter in any movie by themselves. When they are put together, there is a guarantee for some gut wrenching scenes. There were times in this film that their body language alone was humorous. Even though the premise of this film was original, I found it to be quite predictable.
This movie crashed in its attempt for a Dove approval about ten seconds in, unfortunately, this isn’t a bull riding competition. Of course, given the storyline of the film, it was common knowledge this film wouldn’t be family friendly. Compiled with the large amount of language is a buffet of sexual innuendos. Some of the characters should’ve worn a guarder over their mouths. These wedding receptions are not for families, plus I heard the food wasn’t that great either.
