Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
Ben Murphy (John Krasinski) and Sadie Jones (Mandy Moore--Chasing Liberty) are young, in love and plan to marry. The only catch is Sadie's family church, St. Augstine's, and its Reverend Frank (Academy Award winner Robin Williams--Happy Feet, Man of the Year), who will only bless Ben and Sadie's union after they pass his patented, "foolproof" marriage-prep course. Consisting of outrageous classes, outlandish homework assignments and outright in 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 earn their License to Wed.]]>

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!
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.
as they come. Young lovebirds (Mandy Moore and John Krasinski) decide to wed with a small window of three weeks to their intended nuptials. Before they can get to the altar they must pass Reverend Ed's (Williams) crash course in marriage preparation which some would say is akin to boot camp at Paris Island. Bickering and failure ensue. The perfect couple are on shaky ground. Alls well that ends well as the couple reconcile and Reverend Ed presides over their wedding at a sun-splashed resort in Jamaica. Did I give too much away? Didn't think so. If this kind of movie ended any different there would be run at the box office for a refund. "Licence to Wed" is what it is. Eminently forgettable but the kind of movie people on a date seek out. They can't all be "Date Night".
I had serious doubts about License To Wed. Robin Williams has always been know for classic comedy roles, however, with several recent dips in the comedy train, it seemed unlikely even he could save a romantic comedy playing an over bearing, marriage counseling pastor. However, I think that although the basic story line was more than ridiculous, the cast had a great charisma that made the parts of the film that didn't click work more than they should have. Mandy Moore did an excellent portrayl of a semi-controlling bride to be. In fact, I had never seen Ms Moore in a film and have really warmed up to the idea since watching the movie. Another surprise was John Krasinski, the adorable boy next door. He almost seems like a younger version of Ben Stiller's Gaylord Focker in Meet The Parents. At times it is both hilarious, and difficult to was Krasinski's character Ben go through the tests that Father Frank has in store. And of course the great Williams proving once again that he is versatile and can get a laugh out of most any gag. Still not one of my favorite films (although Krasinski was close to getting my vote) still a good deal to pick up on sale or rent for a quiet night at home.

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
