Product Description

License to Wed (DVD) (WS/FS)

Ben Murphy (John Krasinski) and Sadie Jones (Mandy Moore--Chasing Liberty) are young, in love and plan to marry. The only catch is Sadie's family church, St. Augstine's, and its Reverend Frank (Academy Award winner Robin Williams--Happy Feet, Man of the Year), who will only bless Ben and Sadie's union after they pass his patented, "foolproof" marriage-prep course. Consisting of outrageous classes, outlandish homework assignments and outright in invasion of privacy, Reverend Frank's rigorous curriculum puts Ben and Sadie's relationship to the test. Forget happily ever after--do they even have what it takes to earn their License to Wed.

Amazon.com

Marriage is a huge step in any relationship and, with the divorce rate skyrocketing, some clergymen find it advisable to council prospective couples prior to the marriage ceremony. Reverend Frank (Robin Williams) takes his marriage preparation course to a whole new level, putting couples through a very unusual and grueling set of classes that cover everything from trust and communication to experiencing childbirth, meeting each other's needs in and out of bed, and group sessions on how to fight fairly. Happy couple Sadie Jones's (Mandy Moore) and Ben Murphy's (John Krasinski) perfect compatibility is tested to the limits with extraordinary (and hysterical) assignments like caring for twin baby robots that cry and poop without restraint while baby-sitting a friend's two young children and shopping for wedding china. Driving a car blindfolded while one's intended gives directions is no simple task either, but abstinence from sex and writing their own marriage vows may be the couple's most difficult homework assignments. Comedy reigns throughout the entire movie thanks to Robin Williams, his choir-boy assistant Josh Flitter (Nancy Drew) and the rest of the cast and laughing out loud is definitely a course requirement for viewers, but underneath the hilarity is a serious message about making marriage work. --Tami Horiuchi

I am a pastor. In spite of everything I do, I know that the statistics are the same for couples I counsel as ones who elope. The divorce rate is still 50%. Statistics are worse for couples living together before marriage.

In fact, recently a couple I was preparing to marry split up weeks before the date. She was planning a wedding while he was planning to leave her. So I watched this movie to do a little cheering up. As I did so, I gained a lot of perspective and insight.

In this hilarious movie (I do want to emphasize it is for mature audiences), Father Frank works in hilarious ways to wipe the innocence off of the faces of the young couple. While they are seeing hearts and roses, he wants them to see and talk about what is real to them. By creating off the chart stressful situations, he helps them to see past the romance and into the reality.

I am actually considering this movie as required viewing for future couples! I can make a list of various scenes to discuss.

This will remain in my library!

License to wed is an often fall down funny film that delivers an experience few romantic comedies can. There are some of the best gags ever in any comedy let alone a romantic one, and Robin Williams is at his best as reverend Frank, a minister hell bent on ensuring that those who enter into matrimony are truly made for each other. I wont bother to go over the many factors that our young couple must deal with, that's best for you to experience by watching the movie. I will give you the negatives however. A scene of "healing" was gratuitous, poorly placed and unnecessary except for Williams to over hype a parody heavy televangelist joke leftover from his stand up act. The creepy robotic baby twins were over used and lost their ability to be amusing long before the diaper changing gag. The finale was too quickly delivered and allowed for little preparation. The choir boy sidekick was unnecessary and annoying. The shortcomings aside, License To wed is a terrific fun romp through the elements that make a relationship work or not work. 3.75 stars

What a great movie!! License to Wed I read all the reviews online and was surprised with some of the comments. I think people missed the point of this movie. I viewed it as a satire to marriage preparation; however, there were some great points made. One, with marriage comes committment, trust, communication and children. Two, marriage is never easy and one should not go into it thinking life will be great. Both parties need to learn to communicate and work out the every day issues.

The actors were great-like everyone else I love John Krasinski who I think was perfect for this role.

I highly recommend this movie for a nice easy going, hilarious family movie. My 11 year old daughter could not stop laughing.

I really like Robin Williams, so I was looking forward to this comedy. Alas, after 45 minutes into it I had yet to laugh... I stopped it there and decided to not watch the end of it. It is just so over the top that it's not really funny anymore. I really enjoy even silly comedies and slapstick humor, but this is just not my cup of tea.

Hilarious. Robin Williams plays the role of Reverand Frank. He cousels couples who are engaged to be married. Actually, Father Frank's pre-maritial counseling is more like marriage bootcamp. The couple in this movie are Sadie and Ben played by Mandy Moore and John Krasinski. Sadie and Ben are very different from each other. Reverand Frank puts the couple through a series of challenging real life situations so that they know what they are really in for when they get married. Father Frank's "pre-marital counseling" is brilliant. He really understands what married life is like which seems odd since he is a priest. Maybe Father Frank has a secret. I recommend this movie for its wit, wisdom, brilliance, and laughs.

I loved this movie even through the few slow parts I cracked up for most of it. If you like the show The Office then you will enjoy this as Kevin (Brian Baumgardner), Kelly (Mindy Kaling) and Angela (Angela Kinsey) also star in this film with Jim (John Krasinski). The movie is a little cliché at points and most of it you have seen before in whatever romantic comedy you decide to think of.

It's an amusing movie. It has some moments where you kinda cringe in discomfort, but overall we laughed and enjoyed it. His "sidekick" was funny, but I kept wondering why this kid wasn't ever in school or at home, etc.

Equal mixture funny and bizarre. The little kid with Robin Williams is still annoying and creepy after watching it several times but not as bad as the first time I watched the movie. Basically the movie is boy meets girl and then decide to get married but due to a booked church have to get married sooner than they want when there is only one opening in three weeks or they have to wait 2 years, which means they have to have their marriage counseling jammed into that tiny widow before the wedding.
