A gal who needs a date for a family function gets the best man money can buy in this romantic comedy. Kat Ellis (Debra Messing) is a woman in her mid-thirties living in New York City and has had more than her share of romantic problems -- enough so that she's gotten word that her younger half-sister Amy (Amy Adams) is getting married, and that her mother Bunny (Holland Taylor) and father Victor (Peter Egan) want to fix her up with someone so she won't look alone and miserable for the big day. Adding insult to injury, Kat learns that the best man at the ceremony will be Jeffrey (Jeremy… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Nothing says true love like a movie about a desperate, neurotic woman who hires a male whore to take her to her sister's wedding so she can make the ex-fiance jealous. I wonder if they have a Vermont Teddy Bear for that?"
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"Mulroney is a stealth actor: Whenever you see him in a picture, you're not just reminded of how good he almost always is -- you have the sense of discovering it for the first time."
‑ Stephanie Zacharek, Salon.com
"As predictable as a church ceremony and witless as the pastor's blessings, leaving one to ponder this wedding's "reception.""
‑ Doris Toumarkine, Film Journal International
"The main problem with the film is that it seems to be missing a sequence where we see Kat and Nick actually falling for each other - the script pretty much expects us to take it for granted just because they're the leads."
‑ Matthew Turner, ViewLondon
"Messing-Mulroney romantic comedy has "something borrowed" in its plot -- and a sense of missed opportunity that'll leave you blue."
‑ James Rocchi, Netflix
"This is a charmless, lifeless affair that had me leaving the theater in a mood more appropriate to a funeral than a wedding."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"Admittedly, no part of the year is immune to bad romantic comedies. But what distinguishes The Wedding Date, what qualifies it so impeccably for turkey season, goes way beyond generic foulness."
‑ Rick Groen, Globe and Mail
"While there are many of the right ingredients here -- a likable cast, plot potential, a dreamy English countryside setting -- I still can't say "I do" to this fluffy flick."
‑ Camerin Courtney, Christianity Today
"As forgettable as a Hollywood couple's marriage vows."
‑ Stella Papamichael, BBC
"The Wedding Date reveals no trace of recognizable human behavior in it."
‑ Mark Pfeiffer, Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema
"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."
‑ Jennifer Snow, Village Voice
"As stale as last week's wedding cake."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"A dupla principal até que se esforça (principalmente Mulroney, que vem se especializando neste tipo de personagem), mas o roteiro repleto de clichês frustra suas tentativas."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"Perfectly watchable even if it's deeply lazy filmmaking."
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"But I think that if you're a guy you would be best to avoid this like the plague!"
‑ Eric Lurio, Greenwich Village Gazette
