The Wedding Planner
This lighthearted romantic comedy in the tradition of Runaway Bride (1999) casts Jennifer Lopez in the Julia Roberts mold. Lopez stars as Mary Fiore, an ambitious and successful San Francisco wedding planner who works only for the most wealthy and exclusive clients but who is also a perpetual single.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Suffers particularly in inevitable comparison with My Best Friend's Wedding."
‑ Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
"It runs of romance and it runs out of laughs."
‑ Joel Siegel, Good Morning America
"Not so much a movie than just another tool in the entertainment-world-domination plot concocted by the burgeoning, big-butt-blessed multimedia phenomenon nicknamed J. Lo."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"Its manner is as light as wedding cake frosting and its lead performances are as poised as the bride and groom at the top of the cake."
‑ Jon Niccum, Lawrence Journal-World
"when J-Lo tries to be J-Ro (as in Julia Roberts), the results are no-go. Obnoxious and unfunny from start to finish, "Planner" is about as tender and comforting as a fairy tale shouted through a bullhorn."
‑ James Sanford, Kalamazoo Gazette
"McConaughey is insufferably smug as always, while the bewilderingly miscast Diva appears bored and impatient."
‑ Jessica Winter, Village Voice
"So insipid, so willfully bland, that it will probably need no nips, tucks, trims or bleeps to be ready for flight play."
‑ John Hartl, Seattle Times
"The script recycles every cliché you could possibly imagine (and then some)."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Although Lopez projects her usual charisma here, McConaughey seems as out of place as Will Rogers playing Rhett Butler."
‑ Betty Jo Tucker, ReelTalk Movie Reviews
"It's a modestly successful romantic comedy, much like those old-fashioned fluff films of yesterday."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Occasionally so inept and embarrassing that it's almost physically painful to sit through."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"Disappointing would-be romantic comedy with innuendo."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"The Wedding Planner is a bit of fluff, but fluff can be entertaining taken in light doses."
‑ Rebecca Murray,
"One of the more confused romantic comedies."
‑ Jeffrey Chen, Window to the Movies
"May be one of the most cheerfully unamusing movies in a long time."
‑ Mark Dujsik, Mark Reviews Movies
