The schooner Woodwind featured in the movie is an actual schooner available for charter and public cruises out of Annapolis, Maryland. In fact, they used the boat "as-is" including keeping her name unaltered. The boat featured is the second Woodwind (Woodwind II) and has an identical sister that bears the name "Woodwind". An employee of the Woodwind tours was actually laying underneath Walken steering the boat down the Severn River in Annapolis, while he is holding onto the wheel. See more »

This movie will never win an Oscar, but it still surprised me and became my favorite summer movie this year. The plot, as in all good summer comedies, is simple. Two guys who crash weddings to pick up woman have zany adventures and learn a little something along the way. The real fun of this movie is in the actors, who deliver their performances perfectly. Owen Wilson is the aging California surfer type who may be ready to move on with his life. Vince Vaughn is his best friend who frequently acts like a spoiled, horny child but is actually a good guy. Christopher Walken is the slightly scary father of the love interest. So if you have seen Wilson in Shanghai Noon and Vaughn in Swingers and Walken in, well almost anything he has ever made, then you have seen these characters before. But still, they just work well together here. The movie contains just enough real emotion to keep you caring and enough absurdity and broad physical comedy to keep you laughing. This isn't Shakespeare, but it is funny. Highly recommend.
