    The overall effect is pleasing, light, cheerful.

    There are moments of dizzy, semisweet fun to be had on the premiere. But the honeymoon could be short.

    Even with an attractive cast and tart moments, the whole remains less than the sum of its parts.

    Unfortunately, the comedy is Kelley at his most forced and artificial.
  5. Mr. Kelley is a gifted television producer, and “The Wedding Bells” has funny moments, but this series is not a labor of love. It’s a labored effort to simulate romance.
  6. This is the skin of a David E. Kelley show with none of the usual muscle, brains, spirit or cheek behind it.

    It is awful. It is truly awful. It is awful in ways that make the word "awful" seem inadequate.

    You all are nuts! You give this show only 4 weeks and in that 4 weeks move it around so that no one can find it and call it quits? This was You all are nuts! You give this show only 4 weeks and in that 4 weeks move it around so that no one can find it and call it quits? This was one of the best shows to come around in a very long time! It appealed to BOTH husbands and wives; word of mouth was going out to friends and relatives and it also appealed to the "over 30" crowd who has the money, etc. But most of all - IT MAD US BELLY-ROLL LAUGH! You better fire the guy who decided to pull this show - he just lost a lot of money for you all! Expand

    I actually enjoyed this show. I laughed a few times and was entertained throughout the episode. Plus, Sarah Jones is really hot.
