  1. Funny, ungirdled romp - a buddy picture about buddies who actually know what women want.

    Wedding Crashers may be the most optimistic Hollywood comedy of the year, because it restores at least some dim hope that directors, writers and actors with actual brains in their heads can somehow triumph over unimaginative studio execs. In that way, Wedding Crashers isn't just the life of the party, but its pulse.

    A showcase for Vince Vaughn's rantings and Owen Wilson's standard but affable chum act.

    Wedding Crashers doesn't quite live up to its promise, but through no fault of its off-the-wall cast.
  5. Vaughn can motormouth like a machine gun, spraying men, women and children with manic, rat-a-tat outbursts of toxic insincerity. It's often dirty, yes. But it's also manic and inspired.
  6. A stiff drink or maybe some pharmaceutical assistance might have made me overlook the film's sour tone, or the unremarkableness of its direction.

    Wedding Crashers is one of the funniest movies Vaughn and Wilson have made. All the comedy is amusing and the cast is very clever. The story was well constructed and all the actors complement one another. They could've made a sequel because they tried to make another hit comedy but that hasn't happened. The sequel would be successful if that ever happens. Expand

    Wedding Crashers in a great movie. Vince Vaughn is fantastic! Christopher Walken is great too. It's hilarious-filled with non-stop laughs. Don't miss it. Expand

    Wedding Crashers is one funny ass movie. Great Script, good acting (even by Owen Wilson), and smart. Unlike most stupid comedies that just use cuss words every minute, Wedding Crashers puts these words perfectly in their place. Expand

    This isn’t a fluid and straight shooting comedy, but ‘Wedding Crashers’ manages to push out enough laughs to make this easily enjoyable and often a genuinely funny. But these genuine moments are comprised of smaller moments that happen in the broader scheme, there are a lot of things going on to the point where many characters get left behind, but I’ll get to that. We meet Jeremy and John, played by the excellent comedy duo of Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson, a pair of wedding crashers, there is no catch here, this is what they actually do, besides being lawyers, they crash an obscene amount of weddings as a way to bed various lucky ladies who are present at the wedding, then they move on, some of these scenes are terrific as they fake their way into the ceremony and then deliver the goods in the reception. The real punch comes in the form of Treasury Secretary Clearly, who is played by none other than Christopher Walken, this guy can make anything sound funny, yet he is grossly underused in this comedy, is that even possible? But even so, Jeremy and John are after the daughters of the man, seeing this as the jackpot, they get in quite deep, Jeremy (Vaughn) seduces the crazy and unstable Gloria (Isla Fisher) while John falls for the irresistible Claire (Rachel McAdams). But Claire has a fiancee, the not very nice Sack (Bradley Cooper), who is just quite uncomfortable to watch in each scene he is in, Cooper is a phenomenal actor, but his role in this film is jarring and distracting. The bum note of the film is the opportunities it misses, dragging out scenes for longer than they should and not giving enough for Walken to do, but the film has excellent moments with Vaughn and Wilson on top form, they often stray off in perfect comic timing which unfortunately loses steam as the film ticks on, there is a lot of talent that is underused, such as Henry Gibson playing a priest who doesn’t really have much to do apart from making various faces to show shock or other emotions at stories he is told, or the forgotten son, Todd (Keir O’Donnell), who has many funny moments and setups, but ultimately these don’t amount to much. One of the highlights actually comes from a small role for Will Ferrell, playing the master of the wedding crashing game, his moments on screen are comedy gold but just don’t last long enough. In the midst, this is still a funny film, it has plenty of gags that work in relation to the film and has its fair share of top notch scenes, particularly more candid ones amongst the talent rather than she they are all in the same room at the same time.
    The idea and some of the delivery is there, this has an all star cast but simply loses track too many times which leaves its consistency in the gutter, but some decent performances and also some side splitting moments make this enjoyable enough, but a bit too long for its misplacement.

    This is a very clever movie that is carried by Vaughn and Wilson's great chemistry, there are also very nice performances from the supporting cast especially Bradley Cooper in his breakout role. A very funny cameo from Will Ferrell by the way Expand

    A cute movie with a pretty good story and acting. However I thought this movie was going to be very funny and it ended up not being that funny. With two hilarious actors of Vaughn and Wilson this movie could have been really funny. An ok movie with a couple good jokes and a good dramatic story. Expand

    Such a low class piece of junk. Except for like one scene, everything else is stupid. I absolutely hate the two main characters. I highly suggest you don't waste your time watching this obnoxious "comedy". Go read a book or something. Expand
