Consensus: Critics are leaving The Wedding Date at the alter, calling it shopworn, bland, and lightweight.

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?

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.

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.

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.

Cinema em Cena

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.

Village Voice

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.

As predictable as a church ceremony and witless as the pastor's blessings, leaving one to ponder this wedding's "reception."

Matthew Turner

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.

Not an altogether, original Rom Com, with reminders of many other films but this U.S meet the U.K plot gives a real mixture of Actors and characters. Whilst… More
