His dashing good looks and quick-witted charm may win over her family. But will they win over Kat? Filled with unexpected twists and endless laughs, The Wedding Date is the one date that you'll want to keep!

    4.0 out of 5 stars A Vacation for the Mind June 18, 2005
    While the plot may seem implausible, I really enjoyed this movie. Since I love all types of movies (documentary, action, comedy, drama, etc.), I saw this movie for what it enjoyable way to spend some time. If you are looking for light-hearted entertainment that doesn't require you to think, then this movie fits the bill. Dermot Mulroney is great as the suave date bought by Debra Messing's character. And Messing shines as the woman who blossoms during her courtship with her date. And for those who think she's too beautiful to need to buy a date, they haven't seen the many beautiful single women of the world. Not all movies are meant to be deep and thought-provoking, some are just meant to make you smile...and this movie delivers.

    The Wedding Date is a romantic comedy, and to do that formula well you either have to do the formula perfectly with perfectly cast leads or you have to come up with a unique angle. The Wedding Date tries both.

    Debra Messing and Dermot Mulroney make a good-looking couple. All of the women in this movie and all the women at my house were swooning over Mr. Mulroney who looks like he just stepped off the cover of one of those passionate-embracing romance novels. Ms. Messing has the looks and timing to pull off her role, which requires a decent amount of suspension of disbelief. She comes from a well-off family, but in the opening scenes we see that she is a supervisor of working stiffs. Her sister is getting married over in England and her ex-fiancee, who painfully dumped her a few years ago, is the best man. She wants to impress all the right people so she hires professional escort Mr. Mulroney - for $6,000. That is an expensive date, and I don't know any regular people who would pay anything close to that simply to impress an ex.

    But we swallow that and watch the film for what it is. Debra and Dermot are likable and attractive. Sarah Parish delivers most of the best lines in the movie as saucy cousin TJ. Jack Davenport gives a strong performance as the groom - the one marrying the sister. More than even the lead characters, his world is turned upside down in the rapid-fire final act, and more than the other characters I found myself hoping that things will work out for him. Peter Egan plays Dad in a way full of fatherly love and mature wisdom.

    As long as you can accept Debra Messing as a woman who would have to pay a man $6,000 to pretend to be her date, this may be the Romantic Comedy for this week.

    4.0 out of 5 stars A hot 'Date' February 4, 2005
    By mallard
    Fresh point of view puts sizzle in story that could've been sappy

    Like romance in the real world, "The Wedding Date" is part laughs and part tears.

    Director Clare Kilner isn't interested in squeezing every possible gag out of every scene. Certainly, the situation that Kat Ellis (Debra Messing) finds herself in - a single woman who hires a man to pose as her date for a family wedding - is loaded with comic possibilities. But the movie also recognizes Kat's pain, embarrassment and anger.

    It's this darker undercurrent that makes "The Wedding Date" more than a bubble-gum soap opera.

    When we first meet her, Kat seems to be wigging out over the prospect of flying to Britain for her sister's wedding. Her situation is actually worse. The sister is a self-absorbed nightmare. The best man, Jeffrey, is Kat's ex-fiance and the man who broke her heart.

    The last thing Kat wants to do is show up without a guy. So, she employs a male escort, Nick Mercer (Dermot Mulroney), to pretend to be her boyfriend. Kat and Nick must convince her friends and family that they are crazy in love and make Jeffrey sorry he ever left Kat.

    The trip is about Kat getting over her past, and Nick allowing himself to feel love. Events take an unexpected and dark twist before everything is put to rights.

    The big rap against Messing, star of the TV series "Will & Grace," is that she plays Kat as Grace Adler without Will. We still don't know if Messing can do more than look adorable and take pratfalls.

    Mulroney played Julia Roberts' crush in 1997's "My Best Friend's Wedding." He was good-looking back then, but now he's beyond hot.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Funny and Romantic April 10, 2006
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    From the opening search for a date until Dermot Mulroney (Nick) first appears on the screen I was totally absorbed. The movie has a couple of spots where editing could have been better. But, pairing Messing and Mulroney in this romance comedy was a stroke of genius. Debra Messing (Kat)has a natural comedic timing and Dermont Mulroney..... well Father Time has certainly been kind to him. He oozes sex appeal and it is easy to believe he is an escort. The supporting cast is also good with their bent toward British humor. The movie provides a full 90 minutes of entertainment. Too bad they didn't develop a CD of the music because it was perfect. Buy and enjoy!

    5.0 out of 5 stars If I could give it more stars I would September 10, 2005
    This movie was great. Some people are saying that it's similar to Pretty Woman and I guess it sort of is, but on it's own this movie was hysterical and romantic. I recommend that every woman out there goes and rents or even buys this movie. You won't regret it!
