Single-girl anxiety causes Kat Ellis (Messing) to hire a male escort (Mulroney) to pose as her boyfriend at her sister’s wedding. Her plan, an attempt to dupe her ex-fiancé, who dumped her a couple years prior, proves to be her undoing.
I am having a hermit sort of a weekend, which means chick flicks. On the suggestion of the clerks at Blockbuster, I picked up The Wedding Date.
Not bad, definitely good cinematherapy, I think my girlfriends would like it so it is higher on the Word of Mouth scale.
Some truly great lines from Dermot Mulroney’s character:
- “The hardest thing is loving someone and then having the courage to let them love you back.”
- “I think I’d miss you even if we’d never met”
- “Here’s to the husbands who’ve won you, the losers who’ve lost you, and the lucky bastards who’ve yet to meet you”
Yeah, the flick was definitely written by a woman.
To be fair: Rotten Tomatoes liked this one even less than Bewitched, though there were some (slightly) positive reviews
