63
The curious case of two appealing performances surviving a bombardment of schlock.

The Hollywood Reporter
Familiar but never overly broad, this well-cast, crowd-pleasing comedy benefits from a low-key emphasis on character over high jinks.
50
A fairly mediocre film, not nearly as funny as it should be, nor as heartfelt. On the plus side, it's only 85 minutes long and isn't boring. On the downside, it has an intrusive pop soundtrack and a screenplay full of fake conflicts.

Philadelphia Inquirer
A vaguely creepy and mildly diverting rom-com.

ReelViews
This is a charmless, lifeless affair that had me leaving the theater in a mood more appropriate to a funeral than a wedding.

Entertainment Weekly
So many body parts from other engineered romantic comedies have been crudely harvested and stitched together in the making of this weird robotic lark that "Maid of Honor of Frankenstein" might be more useful a nickname.

The movie goes wrong from the start.

New York Daily News
Oddly enough, though, only the finale is predictable in a movie that appears to have been edited in an early-model blender. Not a single scene connects smoothly with the next.

Chicago Tribune
Wedding Date is neither good art, good entertainment nor even good trash.
38
Miami Herald
It's an hour longer than the average sitcom, but The Wedding Date isn't much different from what you see crammed into any TV comedy lineup, minus the laugh track.
38
Premiere
A relatively harmless (and thankfully, not entirely laughless) trifle.
