Did You Know?

In the last bar scene with Ed Burns and Mathew Lillard, Burns is wearing a t-shirt saying "Up & Down Club" - which is the Jazz club his wife Christy Turlington owned with her sister Erin back in San Francisco. The club had a good run from 1994 till 1999.See more »
Continuity: When Mike and TC are tussling there is a pool cue that disappears and reappears on the right edge of the table; when they are finished and Paulie and TC are going to play, the cues are set differently than before.See more »
Paulie:...why do you do the whole kids thing?
Dez Howard:...if you have one kid, you lose a little bit of your life, a little free time, a little bit of your freedom. But you have two kids, your life is over, Jo-Jo.
Paulie:So why do it? I mean... why did you and Tina have another kid?
Dez Howard:What do you do with your free time? Honestly, what do you do? You watch TV. You go hang out with these knuckleheads. You jerk off, right? Listen to me. Free time, it's not all it's cracked up to be. But at the end of the night, if I couldn't, you know...

Take a break from the blockbusters and see something with substance., 15 July 2006
Author: AntFitz4 from United States

I found myself not quite sure what to do with my Saturday and opted to see The Groomsmen. For what reasons I am not sure. I have't heard anything about this movie. I think Brittany Murphy is in it and I think that one guy who was in Saving Private Ryan is in it oh yeah, Matthew Lillard. Sweet, it's going to be hilarious a la Wedding Crashers. WRONG.

This was an incredible flick. Entertaining for beginning to end. Not at all what I was expecting. With a solid cast- not a "Hollywood" star studded cast by a long shot- this movie brought laughter, sympathy, and everything else I enjoy feeling when seeing a movie. Amazing performances by a very talented cast.

Hopefully by word of mouth this movie gets on its feet and everyone gets to the theater to see this. This is a guys movie. This is a girls movie. This is a great movie. I strongly encourage everyone to see this. There are so many issues that are discussed and dealt with in this film its a hit for everyone. A+
