Product Description

Love, family, and politics collide in this hilarious romantic comedy where two brothers find themselves in a battle over the pursuit of marriage. Starring John Stamos (TV's "ER"), Eric Dane (TV's "Grey's Anatomy") and James Brolin (TV's "The Reagans"), Wedding Wars takes the cake! All is well when Shel (Stamos), a gay party planner, agrees to coordinate nuptials for his straight brother Ben (Dane), who happens to be marrying the governor's (Brolin) daughter -- until Shel finds out that Ben penned the governor's speech against gay marriage. Fighting for equal rights, Shel goes on strike and finds he is not alone. As the strike spreads nationwide, the brothers clash, the wedding is off and the war is on!

Amazon.com

Capitalizing on the charisma of John Stamos and Eric Dane, Wedding Wars is a romantic comedy with a political agenda--gay marriage. No, Stamos and Dane don't play lovers, but rather estranged siblings. Dane leaves behind his McSteamy persona from Grey's Anatomy to portray Ben, a slightly uptight man who ends up hiring his gay brother Shel (Stamos) to be his wedding planner. The two seem to be getting along famously, but then politics enters the fray. Ben is engaged to the governor's daughter, and the governor (James Brolin) has taken a public stance against same sex marriage. Though his constituents seem to approve of his political agenda, Shel doesn't. And he shows his displeasure by walking off the job. Though the comedy gets a tad preachy about the inequalities gays face in society, Wedding Wars handles a serious subject in a funny and touching manner. The governor isn't as homophobic as his politics would have you believe. And the film gently addresses how the passive reluctance of politicians to say what they really feel, as opposed to what they think they should say, can hurt the people they serve. Stamos, who has made a career for himself playing the onscreen object of female desire, offers a wonderful performance that is witty and likeable. Shel doesn't go out of his way to tout his sexual orientation, but--unlike the governor, and to a lesser extent Ben--he also isn't afraid of letting his true voice be heard. --Jae-Ha Kim

I just saw this movie the other day. A friend of mine had taped it. I found the movie to be very campy and funny. There were some stereotypes used in creating many of the supporting cast, but the Stamos and Maher were anything but. While there were some stereotypes used in creating each character, they were both well rounded, and in no way the cliche "flaming over the top fag" that tends to be created in most other comedies.

The movie has a great message, and one that I hope will actually be heard. I applaude A&E for airing a movie like this. It had a much wider audience than if it had been broadcast on one of the gay networks, or released only on DVD. I wish more of studios would take a stand and make movies with queer main characters, and have them be well rounded, and not cliches.

OH, and just on a side note, Sean Maher is still as hot as ever, even if he went from a doctor on a spaceship (Firefly-TV series) to an assistiant district attorney. Either way, he is always a great bonus to any show.

The added features on this very entertaining DVD of the brisk and light comedy WEDDING WARS bear watching: the producers, director and actors make the case for the approach of this quality film in tackling the issue of rights for gay marriage in a manner that could not offend anyone and at the same time create a more serious vantage from which to view the controversy. It is the only time in the 'film' that politics is the issue, a factor that makes the actual viewing of the story far more powerful. Credit the writer Stephen Mazur and director Jim Fall for a creating a frothy, fun story that has much more at its core than just entertainment.

Ben Grandy (Eric Dane) works as the campaign manager for the Governor of Maine (James Brolin) and proposes to the governor's daughter Maggie (Bonnie Sommerville). The wedding will be at the waterside mansion of the Governor and when the need for a wedding planner is raised, Maggie insists they ask Shel Grandy (John Stamos), the openly gay brother of Ben, who as a party planner has always dreamed of doing a wedding. Shel is in a successful relationship with state prosecutor Ted (Sean Moore) who remains in the closet for career reasons. Shel jumps at the chance to do the wedding, hoping that in some way this event will mend the schism with his big brother who has been distant since Shel informed him he was gay. All goes well until Ben writes a speech for the Governor in which the Governor states he is against gay marriage. Shel is stunned, gathers up his plans for the wedding and begins a private strike for gay marriage, a strike that with television and media coverage soon spreads across the entire USA, the result being the closure of beauty salons, florists, restaurants, limo services (and all the stereotype gay run businesses, unfortunately).

Loved this one it had a cool premise what if all the gays in all areas around the country went on strike. How it affected the country was crazy and i know it wouldnt go down quite like that. It was still nice to see people uniting over the issue of gay marriage and all that it entails. John Stamos plays his character pretty well as well as Eric Dane. His accepting (not really) of him being gay brother. John Stamos is an all around delight to see in the movie being able to stand up for what he believes in. When the issue of gay marriage gets put down by the governor that wasn't thinking that way before hand. But it is an election year after all.

The supporting characters particularly his live in partner and Eric Dane's wife are acted well and having them in this helps lighten the mood somewhat. Not that is needed because the governor's wife is none too pleased with him after his decision and lets him know on any occasion she can. I love that and i love the fact that while this is about gays marrying its also about a brother finally seeing and accepting his brother for who he is a gay man that wants the same thing he has...to be married. It ends while like a few other movies i've seen still feels somewhat unique and stands on its own merits.

Loved the movie, storyline behind it and the overall appeal of each of the actors/actresses. It is worth checking out and enjoying as well. I bought and love it personally...with the recent string of gay movies that i've seen they've been too depressing and brooding. This has a message but it brings across that message through a mix of comedy and drama as well.

Job well done to all.

This movie is, of course, a fantasy. However it addresses some serious issues in a way that is fun and entertaining. I have been in a gay relationship for over 27 years and am not aware of having damaged anyone's marriage. I am aware that we had to go to a lawyer to get papers giving one another the right to visit one another in the hospital in serious cases. We talk a lot about the separation of church and state. The government here has confused the issue by giving church ministers civil authority over marriage. In some countries you get married by "the state" to satisfy the government; and, if you choose, you get married by your church to satisfy the demands of your religion. There is a lot of fun in this movie, but also some things to consider seriously.
