More Info:
  • Roger Ebert

    The curious case of two appealing performances surviving a bombardment of schlock.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Sheri Linden

    Familiar but never overly broad, this well-cast, crowd-pleasing comedy benefits from a low-key emphasis on character over high jinks.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Stina Chyn

    A decent film, but not a great romantic comedy.

    Film Threat Full Review
  • Sean Axmaker

    Kilner's light touch keeps the romantic pair dancing around their romance without tripping, but as the film reaches the inevitable happy ending, the steps look all too familiar.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Carrie Rickey

    A vaguely creepy and mildly diverting rom-com.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    A fairly mediocre film, not nearly as funny as it should be, nor as heartfelt. On the plus side, it's only 85 minutes long and isn't boring. On the downside, it has an intrusive pop soundtrack and a screenplay full of fake conflicts.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    This is a charmless, lifeless affair that had me leaving the theater in a mood more appropriate to a funeral than a wedding.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Nathan Rabin

    The lucky Mulroney gets to play the kind of sensitive hunk that women want and men want to be, but he's the only one who can be heard over the tired wheezing of the romantic-comedy machinery.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Luke Y. Thompson

    It seems like a slam-dunk pitch -- "Pretty Woman" with the genders reversed -- but there's one major problem: The whole hooker-fantasy bit is much more of a guy thing.

    Dallas Observer Full Review
  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    So many body parts from other engineered romantic comedies have been crudely harvested and stitched together in the making of this weird robotic lark that "Maid of Honor of Frankenstein" might be more useful a nickname.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Caroline Westbrook

    This is a leaden mess that offers only brief moments of respite.

    Empire Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    Dermot Mulroney is the movie's only genuinely romantic lead. And he's so good that he nearly carries The Wedding Date single-handedly. Full Review
  • Jennifer Snow

    Clare Kilner's cast frolics in the countryside in an appropriately British-romantic-comedy fashion, and at times the characters trade silly snaps, but Dana Fox's screenplay is structurally shaky.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Anita Gates

    Struggles from beginning to end to capture the charm and ebullience of "Four Weddings." The new movie's effort is mostly unsuccessful, but there are bright spots.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    An intriguingly racy premise -- plays out to listless, unsatisfying effect.

    Variety Full Review
  • J.R. Jones

    Nicely paced but so fluffy it threatens to waft away.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Michael Wilmington

    Wedding Date is neither good art, good entertainment nor even good trash.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Connie Ogle

    It's an hour longer than the average sitcom, but The Wedding Date isn't much different from what you see crammed into any TV comedy lineup, minus the laugh track.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    Oddly enough, though, only the finale is predictable in a movie that appears to have been edited in an early-model blender. Not a single scene connects smoothly with the next.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Mike Clark

    The movie goes wrong from the start.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Peter Debruge

    A relatively harmless (and thankfully, not entirely laughless) trifle.

    Premiere Full Review
  • Chris Kaltenbach

    There's nothing about The Wedding Date that isn't forced or labored; there's only a stubborn determination to embrace every cliche and make sure the stars photograph well.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • M. E. Russell

    A movie of utter inconsequence -- a cinematic Listerine Strip that evaporates from the brain before you even get your popcorn tub to the trash.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Angel Cohn

    It might be best to discreetly misplace your invitation to these strained festivities.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Carina Chocano

    Winds up an oddly depressing, lost, little movie that eventually caves in on itself.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Desson Thomson

    This movie is all pretty faces and six-pack abs, but no characters. All surface and no soul. Come to think of it, the surface isn't so darned hot either.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Teresa Wiltz

    Amusing premise, not-so-amusing execution.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • David Sterritt

    Suffers from a lack of chemistry.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Wesley Morris

    Messing should know this is precisely the kind of movie Grace would ridicule Will for dragging her to see.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Rick Groen

    Imagine, if you dare, the outtakes from all those merely bad romantic comedies. Now further imagine that these discarded bits, the stuff that failed to make even the failures, found their way out of the waste bin and into a splicing machine and onto a projector. Do that and you're inching toward a full appreciation of this particular barrel, and the bottom it so brazenly scrapes.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    Messing may simply be one of those actresses who's the right size for TV and the wrong size for the big screen.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    Inexplicable Fantasy Romances for the Harried Modern Gal 101 is a more fitting title for this shameless mediocrity.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    A witless, stale and half-hearted rehash of cliches borrowed from the likes of "The Wedding Planner," "The Wedding Singer" and "Four Weddings and a Funeral," this pathetic, alleged comedy certainly wasn't improved by clueless direction by Clare Kilner.
