Product Description

License to Wed (DVD) (WS/FS)

Amazon.com

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

4.0 out of 5 stars Quirky but I may use it for counseling! June 13, 2012
Format:DVD
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
Format:DVD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars ...never to fart... May 26, 2008
Format:DVD
License to wed is an often fall down funny film that delivers an experience few romantic comedies can. There are some of the best gags ever in any comedy let alone a romantic one, and Robin Williams is at his best as reverend Frank, a minister hell bent on ensuring that those who enter into matrimony are truly made for each other. I wont bother to go over the many factors that our young couple must deal with, that's best for you to experience by watching the movie. I will give you the negatives however. A scene of "healing" was gratuitous, poorly placed and unnecessary except for Williams to over hype a parody heavy televangelist joke leftover from his stand up act. The creepy robotic baby twins were over used and lost their ability to be amusing long before the diaper changing gag. The finale was too quickly delivered and allowed for little preparation. The choir boy sidekick was unnecessary and annoying. The shortcomings aside, License To wed is a terrific fun romp through the elements that make a relationship work or not work. 3.75 stars

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie! September 4, 2008
Format:Blu-ray
I realize a lot of people hated this movie, but come on! Movie's are meant to be enjoyed and if you want realism, try a reality show. "License to Wed" was a great movie. I have not laughed so hard in a long time. I especially enjoyed the robot babies in the department store changing room scene. I watched it over and over again, because of it's slaptstick qualities. Granted the robot babies did look a little creepy, but it just added to the laughs.
Robin Williams is a great actor and his one liners are hard to beat. Maybe his role was a little far-fetched, especially all the spy parts. But he did it with a certain elegance that made me laugh and want to see the movie again and again.
There is probably no movie ever made that has 100% realism. If there was, it would be boring and there would always be few people that would think it is unrealistic.
So instead of looking at "License to Wed" as a monumentally unrealistic movie, see it as a rollercoaster ride of laughs and what it is like to learn to get along.
I am looking forward to purchasing this movie after renting it from NetFlix, because in this world with all of it's negativity, it is great to laugh and find something to pick me up when I need it most.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good! August 17, 2014
Format:DVD
I watched this movie on TV after Robin Williams' untimely passing. Lots of his flicks showing lately, of course. To be honest, I'd never heard of this movie and didn't have any expectations, just a quiet Sunday to pass and nothing else on TV. The verdict - I love it! Surprisingly funny and clever and the cast (several from The Office) do a great job. John Krasinski co-stars with Robin Williams and their chemistry is great. Just a really fun movie with lots of laughs.

Tim,
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
