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

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!

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.

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

This is the quintessential date movie. You spend a few bucks, your brain's not taxed, and it's off for Chinese food. The only thing that really distinguishes this movie is the presence of Academy Award winner Robin Williams. Unfortunately, these kind of middling affairs are more typical of Williams' output than "Good Will Hunting". Williams is an extremely talented guy. He's funny reading the phone book. Alas, judging from his engagement to the material here he is essentially phoning it in. Oh, well. At least it's not "R.V.". This movie is as predicatable
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".

License to Wed
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.

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
