The Wedding Date
Debra Messing, Amy Adams, Dermot Mulroney
Kat (Messing) hires a male escort to accompany her to her sister’s wedding in the UK. She wants to look good in front of her family, and her ex-fiance who is the best man. Of course, you guessed it, they end up falling for each other in a very ‘Pretty Woman-esque’ fashion. In the first five minutes you could tell that this film was going to be totally predictable.
The bride-to-be (Adams) has an affair and things start to get messy. Here we have the ‘pre-wedding problems’ theme which is very common in the 21st Century rom com. There is betrayal, and confusion and broken hearts – but it’s all over the place and the film never really gets it together. Smoochy ending as predicted but quite disappointing.
