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

Richard Roeper
Ebert & Roeper

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?

Stephanie Zacharek

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.

Dorothy Woodend
The Tyee (British Columbia)

The Wedding Date is aiming for Adam's Rib material (the Hepburn/Tracey classic that is one the all-time greatest man versus women films), but its makers are not fit to buff Ms. Hepburn's patent pumps.

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

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.

As stale as last week's wedding cake.

Jennifer Snow
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.

Like a bridal shower, it's probably more fun if you have some champagne first. Perhaps some enterprising theater manager will consider this.

Doris Toumarkine
Film Journal International

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

Really good romantic comedy! Made me fall in love with Dermot Mulroney.

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
