    Watching the show brings to mind attending the wedding of someone you barely know or don't really like: Sure, it would be better if everything went well, but after awhile, all you really want is for it to be over so you can get out of there.
  2. If, years later, you're still trying to wash away the foul taste of Fox's "My Big Fat Obnoxious Fiance," the idea of putting family members and friends through emotional anguish for the sake of prime-time entertainment isn't any funnier than it sounds.
  3. A show that's more boring than funny, an investment of entertainment time that's not worth making.

    OK, so is "The Real Wedding Crashers" juvenile, disappointing, disastrous, hollow, devoid, desperate, or disingenuous? Let's just say the show is "bad," plain and simple, and leave it at that.

    Apart from the fact that the gags aren't funny... it's off-putting to see something sacred being mucked around with. [30 Apr 2007, p.37]

    "The Real Wedding Crashers" is about as much fun as going to your Uncle Fred's fifth wedding to a fat phone sex operator. In other words, a wedding you don't have to attend.
  7. A little of this kind of excitement goes a long way. One crashed wedding can be entertaining, but a steady stream could wear thin.

    An HD broadcast: Hugely Dumb.
  9. [It] implodes on pretty much every level.
  10. Their team of comedy actors has some spunk and talent, but the show more closely resembles a commercial for mystery dinner theater, complete with testimonials by real audience members about how fun it all was in the end.

    Watched this nonsense because I was waiting for someone, and still felt as if I wasted my time. Long and tedious set-ups to get the actual wedding crashing, in which the payoff is just not worth it. The 2 points go to some of the actors who do make an attempt with decent comedic efforts, but are just overwhelmed by the poor format. Full Review »

    What a waste of an hour of TV. I'd rather be staring at a blank screen! Bring back The Black Donnelly's--how can NBC cancel that and replace w/ this garbage?? Full Review »
