Debra Messing (TV's Will & Grace) shines in this hilarious romantic comedy about the surprising road to finding true love. Kat Ellis (Messing) is determined to attend her younger sister's wedding with a date. Rather than face the ridicule of her family and in order to show up her ex-fiance, she resorts to the Yellow Pages to find a last-minute escort, Nick (Dermot Mylroney, My Best Friend's Wedding). His dashing good looks and quick-witted charm may win over her family, but will they win over Kat? Filled with unexpected twists and endless laughs, The Wedding Date is the one date that you'll want to keep!
If you're a fan of the frazzled comic rhythms Debra Messing plies on Will & Grace, or if you're pre-sold on the concept of Dermot Mulroney as the world's most dashing heartthrob--an idea given ample evidence here--this escapist romance may provide just enough distraction. The Wedding Date's Pretty Woman-in-reverse plot finds Kat Kat Ellis (Messing) hiring expensive male escort Nick Mercer (Mulroney) to fly to London and pose as her dashing new boyfriend at her sister's wedding so she can face the best man, an ex-fiancé who broke her heart. Non-fans of the stars or romantic comedies in general beware: there's no real chemistry or conflict, and you should alert the media if you can determine exactly when and why Kat and Nick fall in love. Mulroney has nothing to do but be sensitively suave--the film's entire running time is spent waiting for Kat to realize that Nick, hooker or no, is the best thing that ever happened to her (her father may be cinema's first dad to ever encourage his daughter to snare a gigolo while she still can). This is a relatively painless but forgettable first Date; you probably won't need a second assignation. --Steve Wiecking

When Debra Messing flies first class it makes you dream...one day I will not be stuck in economy with no leg room lol.
The setting in England with all of the scenery is perfect for a traveler at heart.
The best line in the whole move is when Dermot says to Debra..."I think I would miss you even if we never met"
There are two scenes where the chemistry between Kat and Nick is very apparent. One is a dance scene where the bridal party are practicing to "Sway With Me". After brief shenanigans, you see Nick and Kat begin to enjoy "swaying" together. There is only one brief "love scene" and it is in a cabin on a small boat in, believe it or not, her parent's driveway. At first you begin to laugh as you realize what a tipsy Kat is up to, but as the scene progresses, you feel the romance and passion. That is the moment you see a hint of love in the eyes of both Kat and Nick. (Debra and Dermot have incredible chemistry that really comes across. They play the subtleties of their characters well, letting their facial expression and body language speak for itself.)
This is a romantic comedy, but it has its serious moments to which many of us can relate and a message for us single ladies. The end of this movie is uplifting and left me with a smile on my face. As Debra said in the bonus interview, you are left wanting to know how Kat and Nick make out - maybe a sequel???
My 1st goal was to obtain The Wedding Date dvd.
Given the good price (14.99) at the time of the quadruple feature: Wedding Date, Along Came Polly, Intolerable Cruelty, The Story of Us none of which I had seen, I decided to purchase this set. However, the only film I enjoyed was the Wedding Date. The other films were okay (2.5-3 stars) but not movies that I would want to re-watch.
Then this triple feature (Wedding Date, Prime & Wimbledon) became available as well via Amazon at an even better price of 6.95. I decided to purchase it because I had not seen Prime or Wimbledon & knowing that buying The Wedding Date again was a sure thing. All 3 movies are good & worth keeping. I would assign a 4.5 stars to the Wedding Date & a 4 to Prime & a 3.5 to Wimbledon.
There are other combos of the above dvds including About a Boy which in my opinion is only an okay film, again not a "keeper" in my books.
So if you had to choose which feature set gives you the best value for your money, I would definitely choose this one hands down.
