Never cross a bride on her wedding day'she'll take no prisoners. Drew Barrymore (Riding in Cars with Boys) heads up a young and talented cast featuring Dean Cain, Andy Dick, Sean Patrick Flanery, Mitchell Whitfield and Luke Wilson in a hilarious "action-comedy full of snappy dialogue and colorful characters" (Total Film) that puts a whole new spin on shotgun weddings!

For on the way from the penitentiary, the best man, Billy (Flanery), decides he needs a little cash infusion from the town bank'so he holds it up! But it's not long before all of the groomsmen are held upwhen the cops surround the place! And since neither hell nor high water will stop Hope from having her day'she rushes in to join her fugitive wedding party, at therisk of spending her honeymoonnot to mention the rest of her lifebehind bars!

By Michael Butts HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on December 9, 2004
Format: DVD
BEST MEN surprised me very much; I wasn't expecting such a delightful, if a little bit depressing, movie. Directed by Tamra Davis with a keen eye on characterization and humor, this movie is one of those you smile most of the time, and have a good time with its surreal and zany plot.

Luke Wilson plays Jesse, a convict getting out of prison after a theft, and who is getting married to his sweetheart, Hope (Drew Barrymore). Along for the ride are his best friends (Dean Cain as a former Green Beret, who is gay; Mitchell Whitfield as the lawyer Saul, who was Wilson's lawyer; Andy Dick as the nerdy Teddy, who is in a bad marriage; and Sean Patrick Flannery, who plays Billy and is secretly the philanthropic bank robber known as Hamlet because he spouts off lines from the play when he robs the banks. Billy doesn't tell his buddies that he's planning on robbing a bank before the wedding, but one thing leads to another and all the men are holed up in the bank with the local sheriff (Fred Ward) who also happens to be Billy's father! Soon, the inevitably nasty FBI comes in, headed by the sadistic and cold agent, played with malevolent glee by the durable and dependable Raymond J. Barry (Dead Man Walking, The Chamber).

The movie moves from some very humorous scenes to a devastating finale. This dramedy works because the performances are top notch and the script while manipulative is honest. Brad Dourif gives one of his best performances since "Cuckoo's Nest" as the mentally challenged Vietnam vet. Fred Ward, Dean Cain, Sean Patrick Flannery and Mitchell Whitfield are also excellent. It's the best work I've seen Cain do.

The movie entertained me immensely, and I would recommend it to audiences who enjoy a dramatic comedy! Or is it a comic drama?

Cheers!

This movie has it all. Exploration of relationships, platonic and romantic, self-examination, character study, comedy of folly, and all without being heavy-handed or boring. All the performances are top-drawer and each character has something to offer which is great and rare, making this truely and ensemble piece. Dean Cain's performance is especially captivating, but not so much that it fails the mix. You like and care about each one of the characters, warts and all. I would recommend this movie to anyone, because I think anyone regardless of taste preferences would find something to love about this movie. Definately worth the look.

When I first began watching this movie I thought, "what the hell is this all about." But as the movie progressed, I must say it was well worth the watch. This movie had everything from action, drama, and even a few Shakespearean quotes. Sean Patrick Flannery gives an award winning performance in my book, and the rest of the cast works well together and really make this movie come alive! That being said, go watch it already!

I bought this movie because Drew Barrymore is in it and I'm collecting all her movies. I watched it for the first time today and to tell you the truth the end was a little to sad for what I thought it was gonna be.
To quote the back of the movie:
"Hope's (Barrymore) big mistake on her wedding day was sending the groomsmen to collect her jailbird fiance Jesse (Wilson) from Prison. For on the way from the penitentiary, the best man, Billy (Flanery), decides he needs a little cash infusion from the town bank...so he holds it up! But's it's not long before all of the groomsmen are held up - when the cops surround the place! And since neither hell nor high water will stop Hope from having her day...she rushes in to join her fugitive wedding party, at the risk of spending her honeymoon - not to mention the rest of her life- behind bars."
It was a wonderful cast of Drew, Luke Wilson, Dean Cain, Andy Dick, Sean Patrick Flanery, and Mitchell Whitfield. A good description of this movie is a different kind of shotgun wedding.

I rented this movie not knowing what to expect, but ended up loving it. It has everything one could want in a movie and more - comedy, action, romance, and great acting. This movie shows how tight friendship can be and the ending is killer! I never realized how much of the Hamlet "To Be or Not To Be" soliliquy I actually knew. Sean Patrick Flanery and Dean Cain give stellar performances. This is an under-rated, under-marketed movie!
I would also recommend "The House of Yes" to those who enjoy the dark comedies....

To put it simply, this movie just goes to show that "B" grade movies doesn't necessarily mean that they are "B" in quality. In fact, I would say that Best Men is better than some supposed "A" grade movies.
This movie has something that a lot of others lack - originality. I was kept entertained throughout the entirity of this movie, as were other people that I have recommended this movie to.
This movie definitely definitely gets two thumbs up from me.
