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.
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.
It just feels lacking.
The film stars the vivacious Isla Fisher and the `where has he been' star of `American Pie', Jason Biggs. Jason plays Anderson, a young and in love man who accidentally scares his fiancé to death when he proposes dresses up as Cupid. Still in mourning a year later, he happens to meet the young and spontaneous Katie who is running from a proposal herself. On a whim (or a dare, however you want to interpret that) he asks her to marry him and she accepts. Now, both Anderson and Katie have a long list of quirks and issues of their own, but together they make such a mismatched pair that you can't help but see how `meant for each other' they truly are.
For me, the films main faults is that it runs out of comedic ideas too soon. It doesn't know how to sustain the intriguing plot. Instead, it falls into the rut of delivering one overdone gross-out gag after another. It doesn't know the word subtlety, and it doesn't understand the importance of variety. That said, when it nails something, it nails it hard. On top of that, Fisher is just plain ridiculously watchable; I mean, you're eyes never want to leave her. Biggs seems grown up, which is a good thing. I could actually see him becoming a honed leading man, that is if he ever gets good work again. The supporting cast is hit or miss, with some of their side-plots getting in the way of the film being truly wonderful. Joanna Gleason is probably my favorite of the supporting cast.Read more ›
