Product Description

After losing the woman of his dreams, Anderson (Biggs) is urged by his best friend to propose to a total strange... just when he thought his life is over, he realizes it's just beginning.

Amazon.com

Best known as a comedian, Stella’s Michael Ian Black makes his directorial debut with Wedding Daze, AKA The Pleasure of Your Company. In the prologue, Anderson (Jason Biggs) dresses up as Cupid and proposes to his perfect girlfriend, who promptly keels over. A year later, he's still in mourning. Meanwhile, Katie (Isla Fisher) is also seeing a seemingly flawless fellow, and though her mother (Joanna Gleason) pressures her to accept his proposal, Katie has her doubts. The next day, she meets the unemployed Anderson at the diner where she works. On a dare, he asks her to marry him. Not only does she accept--she moves in with him. They make for an odd couple, but not as odd as their parents: Katie's stepfather (Matt Malloy) is a Jewish inventor, while her birth father (Joe Pantoliano) is a Buddhist convict; Anderson's parents (Margo Martindale and Edward Herrmann), on the other hand, are very happily married (suggestive words send them into a sexual frenzy). Clearly, Anderson and Katie's differing backgrounds create a momentary stumbling block, but their breakup lasts as long as their courtship--blink and you'll miss it. Denied a US theatrical release, Wedding Daze is a rough-around-the-edges, if sweet-natured romp. At the very least, it's superior to other wedding-oriented comedies of the time, like the crass License to Wed. There are a few unnecessary gross-out gags, but an appealing cast--including Rob Corddry as a good-natured deputy--distract from the more awkward moments. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

4.0 out of 5 stars Romantic romp is right January 17, 2008
Format:DVD
Not quite what I would have expected (based on trailers in advertisements), but not bad. Given the leads, and backgrounds of same, I expected something more along the lines of say American Pie or Wedding Crashers, but this was rather tame. Note that says tame, not lame. Released straight to video, rather than going to theatres, one might think the movie here isn't worth the time, but that isn't true. Perhaps somewhat in line with the American Pie 'wedding movie', this one is certainly formulaic but delivers a cute movie if you care to sit and watch it.

Anderson (Jason Biggs) has his anticipated fiance unexpectedly become, well, unavailable. Heartbroken, not ready to move on, despite his best friend telling him that his relationship wasn't ready to move on to the next level begin with, he's somewhat dared into striking up a new relationship. One that by chances happens to involve Kate (Wedding Crasher's crazy red head Isla Fisher). So starts a rushed romantic relationship as the two characters propose to each other, accept the proposals and then question whether or not their relationship is a a good or bad thing. Can they actually make it through to getting married, or will the baggage each carries ruin things before they can even get started?

The comedy isn't quite as low-brow (for the most part) as any of the American Pie movies, or say Saving Silverman (another Biggs starring role) would be, but there are some funny scenes stolen by Anderson's parents and Katie's as well.

Coarse language at times, sexual content/suggestive behavior, probably deserved of the R rating that is carried for this one. Distributed as a flipper disc with widescreen on one side, full screen (why does anyone still buy anything in that format?!!?) on the other. A few deleted/extended scenes included as extras.

2.0 out of 5 stars Potential--NOT realized April 11, 2008
Format:DVD
This movie's plot HAD potential. I don't know where it went, but it WASN'T in the final cut of the movie.

Not that the main actors involved didn't turn in good performances. Jason Biggs has gotten his one-trick pony of pathologically-spastic-eccentric-geek-stunts/"potty humor" performance down pat. (Not as much of a compliment as that might sound, Jason!) Isla Fisher turns out to be the bright side of this movie, turning in a fresh and genuine performance that nicely compliments her physical beauty.

Love is not an emotion--contrary to popular opinion. Love is a decision. Even the best relationships do not FEEL the emotion all the time. This movie COULD have chosen to emphasize the fact that in all marriages there comes a time when you must continue to CHOOSE to love the other person. That love is a decision you make daily, is the mechanism of how arranged marriages have worked down through the ages in multiple cultures. (Don't get me wrong--I'm not advocating arranged marriages; this is just to illustrate and emphasize my point.)

By its wild exaggeration of decision over emotion, the premise of this movie could have made the point that a committed marriage CAN result from sheer force of wills and the valuing of commitment. The movie COULD HAVE chosen to emphasize these positive things that are sorely needed in this age of near-universal devaluation of marriage and easy divorce--but it didn't.

Instead, it emphasizes the feelings which most people confuse with love anyway. By the glorification of entering into marriage frivolously, it suggests that love and a stable marriage can come without thought, without doing any the SANE things that dating couples should be doing prior to marriage to discern whether someone is a proper mate.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wedding Daze April 26, 2008
Format:DVD
I have not seen a movie so simple and touching for a long time. The casts are easy and the whole story is so romantic (somewhat not very real). I would recommand this movie to all the people who lives with love. This is a wonderful movie. I need one for my collection.

3.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly humorous November 24, 2008
Format:DVD
Wedding Daze came and went at the theatres here. After seeing a trailer online that suggested a funny if completely absurd film, I never saw another thing about this film. It didn't receive very positive reviews, didn't stay long in the theatres and didn't really catch my attention until I noticed it was on Netflix's "View Now" roster. So, I decided to give it a late chance and came away with a smile.

Let's get one thing clear: the movie is ridiculous. Boy Meets Girl. Boy accidently kills girl. Boy is sad. Boy meets second girl and instantly proposes on a lark. Girl says yes. Hijinks ensue. What this means for Wedding Daze is that Anderson (Jason Biggs) proposes to his girlfiend who is so shocked, she has a heart attack. He becomes inconsolable until his best friend forces him to ask out the next girl he sees. At this moment, Anderson meets Katie (Isla Fisher) and, instead of asking her out, asks her to marry him. She says yes, shocking both of them, and then the aforementioned hijinks (and awkwardness) abound.

It's a pretty silly movie, written and directed by the equally silly Michael Ian Black, that works only because of the inspired casting. The two leads, Jason Biggs and Isla Fisher, have always been perfect comedic choices and they are zany and funny here. Even when the story gets a little long in the tooth and extends a bit further than it probably should, they keep it mostly afloat. It feels like the grownup cousin of Saving Silverman, another absurd-but-decent comedy. And it can get away with a bit more with its R rating. However, as far as raunchy R-rated movies, it's pretty tame.

Enjoyable, but completely unbelievable.
