Rachel McAdams listened repeatedly to Fleetwood Mac's 1975 song "Landslide" to prepare for emotional scenes. Owen Wilson said the song made her cry immediately: "It was like turning on a faucet." See more »

John Beckwith (Owen Wilson) and Jeremy Grey (Vince Vaughn) are
life-long friends who have made a hobby out of lying to get into
wedding receptions, where they pick up vulnerable women with even more
lies. Their plans to crash the upscale wedding of a high-profile
politician (Christopher Walken) go awry when John falls in love with
the politician's daughter (Rachel McAdams) and the two guys end up
spending the weekend with her family who just happen to be completely
Wedding Crashers is easily the funniest film of 2005. It's constantly
hilarious and it's not completely immature. The premise is pretty
creative and original. The film is not just filled with cheap jokes and
toilet humor. There's actually a pretty mature love story to be found
here as well. In all honestly, the script isn't that great but the film
works really well because of the cast. The actors bring life into their
characters and most of them give funny performances. Vince Vaughn is
the true star of Wedding Crashers. His over the top performance is very
funny. Some people may find him annoying though. Owen Wilson also gives
a funny performance. He just wasn't as good as Vince but he holds his
own. Together, Vaughn and Wilson have great chemistry and really make
their scenes with one another really funny.
Rachel McAdams is one of the best young actresses working today. She
appeared in three movies in 2005 and this one was the best. Her
performance is pretty good and it's so easy to love this girl.
Christopher Walken does his usual routine and he gives an okay
performance. He isn't as funny as everyone else though. Isla Fisher is
also another talented young actress. She comes out of no where and
gives a very funny performance. Jane Seymour is underused which is too
bad because she's pretty funny. Bradley Cooper was okay, nothing really
special though. Not all of the film is perfect. I think the running
time is too long. Long comedies rarely work out and while this one
does, it could have still been edited. Also, the ending is kind of
cheesy which is okay but a little unexpected. Will Ferrell makes a
cameo and let's just say that it was not needed. It wasn't completely
bad but he seemed to be trying way too hard. I really think that he's
just an average comedian and nothing really special. One last thing,
the film is pretty funny yet it doesn't have that great of a repeat
value, at least for me. In the end, Wedding Crashers is worth checking
out. Rating 8/10
