Editorial Reviews

Marriage is a huge step in any relationship and, with the divorce rate skyrocketing, some clergymen find it advisable to council prospective couples prior to the marriage ceremony. Reverend Frank (Robin Williams) takes his marriage preparation course to a whole new level, putting couples through a very unusual and grueling set of classes that cover everything from trust and communication to experiencing childbirth, meeting each other's needs in and out of bed, and group sessions on how to fight fairly. Happy couple Sadie Jones's (Mandy Moore) and Ben Murphy's (John Krasinski) perfect compatibility is tested to the limits with extraordinary (and hysterical) assignments like caring for twin baby robots that cry and poop without restraint while baby-sitting a friend's two young children and shopping for wedding china. Driving a car blindfolded while one's intended gives directions is no simple task either, but abstinence from sex and writing their own marriage vows may be the couple's most difficult homework assignments. Comedy reigns throughout the entire movie thanks to Robin Williams, his choir-boy assistant Josh Flitter (Nancy Drew) and the rest of the cast and laughing out loud is definitely a course requirement for viewers, but underneath the hilarity is a serious message about making marriage work. --Tami Horiuchi

Product Description

Newly engaged, Ben Murphy (John Krasinski) and Sadie Jones (Mandy Moore) can't wait to start their life together and live happily ever after. The problem is that Sadie's family church, St. Augustine's, is run by Reverend Frank (Robin Williams), who won't bless Ben and Sadie's union until they pass his patented, "foolproof" marriage-prep course. Consisting of outrageous classes, outlandish homework assignments and some outright invasion of privacy, Reverend Frank's rigorous curriculum puts Ben and Sadie's relationship to the test. Forget happily ever after--do they even have what it takes to make it to the altar? Also available in HD format.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quirky but I may use it for counseling! June 13, 2012
I am a pastor. In spite of everything I do, I know that the statistics are the same for couples I counsel as ones who elope. The divorce rate is still 50%. Statistics are worse for couples living together before marriage.

In fact, recently a couple I was preparing to marry split up weeks before the date. She was planning a wedding while he was planning to leave her. So I watched this movie to do a little cheering up. As I did so, I gained a lot of perspective and insight.

In this hilarious movie (I do want to emphasize it is for mature audiences), Father Frank works in hilarious ways to wipe the innocence off of the faces of the young couple. While they are seeing hearts and roses, he wants them to see and talk about what is real to them. By creating off the chart stressful situations, he helps them to see past the romance and into the reality.

I am actually considering this movie as required viewing for future couples! I can make a list of various scenes to discuss.

This will remain in my library!

5.0 out of 5 stars Liscense to Wed March 28, 2008
What a great movie!! License to Wed I read all the reviews online and was surprised with some of the comments. I think people missed the point of this movie. I viewed it as a satire to marriage preparation; however, there were some great points made. One, with marriage comes committment, trust, communication and children. Two, marriage is never easy and one should not go into it thinking life will be great. Both parties need to learn to communicate and work out the every day issues.

The actors were great-like everyone else I love John Krasinski who I think was perfect for this role.

I highly recommend this movie for a nice easy going, hilarious family movie. My 11 year old daughter could not stop laughing.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, but not good either; just meh... December 27, 2007
There are parts within `License to Wed' that will make you laugh, and even a few scenes that may make you laugh hard, but in the end `License to Wed' cannot be called a good film because quite frankly, it's not. I really wanted to love this film, and while I did like it to a certain extent there were still times when I felt it was almost a wasted evening. I love me some Mandy Moore and really hope that she picks up the ball and makes some better role choices in the near future because her recent film choices have been less than desirable. Now, `License to Wed' is light years beyond the ridiculous and utterly wasted effort that was `Because I Said So' but it is no where near the brilliance that was `Saved' so you see my dilemma. It's fair to midland at best.

The film follows a young and adorable couple Ben and Sadie who are undeniably in love. At Sadie's parents thirtieth wedding anniversary party Ben decides to purpose and this thus starts our little outing. Sadie has always dreamed of getting married at the same church her parents were wed but in order for them to do so they need to take a marriage preparation course put on by Reverend Frank. It becomes quickly apparent to Ben and to the audience that Frank is a psycho but for some strange reason no one else can see that. Ben quickly grows tired of Frank's rules and mind games and soon starts to wage war with the man in cloth only to drive a wedge further and further between Sadie and himself.

Mandy Moore is still adorable here but she falls a little flat due to the poor plot and dialog. John Krasinski is almost wasted here. He ends up being the punch line most of the time, leaving everyone around him to bring whatever funny there is at his expense.

2.0 out of 5 stars Let this one set on the shelf December 31, 2007
If you are reading this review, you are probably thinking that this movie may be worth while seeing, it has robin williams. Not so. HE could not even save this completely disasterous movie. This follows the trail of a couple who get engaged at her parent's 30th anniversary party, then find out to use the "family" church to get married, they only have 3 1/2 weeks to do so, or it is wait 2 years. During this 3 weeks, they have to pass the pre-marital class ran by the "reverend" played by Robin Williams.

The chemistry of the couple is not believeable, the extent that the reverend goes to is so far fetched it's not funny, and the script has numerous holes/flaws (please see many of the other reviews, so i won't have to rehash). I'm glad I rented this rather than seeing it in the theater. Even one for robin williams loyalists to skip. No wonder MSN ranked this Worst movie of the year.

2.0 out of 5 stars the movie may be better for you than it sounds? December 17, 2009
Format:HD DVD
The theme seems to be that people many times really don't
know each other well enough when they get married
and as a result marriages don't last.
The family preacher or priest was traditionally the one to go to
for marriage counseling. This movie has the preacher from hell
making the lives of the people he is supposed to be helping
miserable. The motivation and the result of this movie seems to be two different things.
The spying, conniving preacher and his alter boy might be funny
in another universe, but in this movie they are terrifying?
The movie is very bad for organized religion too?
You get feeling really sorry for the clueless couple.

4.0 out of 5 stars good movie for adults
A little too much foul mouth from Robin Williams in an attempt at humor; however, the point behind the movie is great.
And his little side-kick is a scream.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not worht the money or time.
This is not one of Robin Williams's better movies. Maybe he is tired, or in need of money, or just bored. This degrades his greater work. Shame on you, Robin.

How did you find the specs? Just curious. I appreciate your willingness to share them. My concern is that I don't want to get the disc and my standard dvd player won't play it. If it truly is HD on one side, and standard on side 2 (a true hybrid) it will be worth it. Thanks for any... Read More
