I very, very rarely actually laugh out loud at movies or shows, even when I find them funny. This had me laughing from beginning to end. It was so well written, totally off the wall funny and just one of those oddball comedies that just works.
If you like quirky and eclectic give it a try. Isla Fisher is adorable, and so is Jason Briggs. And the rest of the cast is great, too. All of the parents are wonderfully insane - in very different ways - and it's definitely an unusual collection of characters. But it works.
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.
Great fun, colorful characters, great zinger lines and good actors with a feel for comedy. Some adult jokes you will not want to have to explain to the kids, so be aware!
Never slows down and you get the feeling those acting in it were having fun. Isla Fisher is very talented and good at comedy.
By the way, there are some seriously flawed 1-star reviews by people who didn't even watch the whole film. It's one thing to prefer the more crude current humor in films, but to dismiss the film after 10 minutes does not serve the person reading the review. And if I hear the hipster mantra, "That's 90 minutes of my life I'll never get back" I think I will throw up. If you time is so precious, why are you writing reviews at all?
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.

The movie is rather cute. However, it seemed midway into the movie that the screenwriter exhausted his initial idea and instead created a hodgepodge of misadventures.Published 3 months ago by manshoe
