Storyline

Sadie and Ben are in love, and although Ben suggests getting married in the Caribbean, Sadie has her heart set on a wedding at the family church, St. Augustine's. Ben says sure, and they meet with the pastor, Rev. Frank. The only date open for two years is three weeks away, and Frank insists the kids go through his marriage prep course. They're to write their own vows; he also demands chastity, bugs their apartment, initiates arguments, has them care for robot twins, creates friction between Ben and her family, and raises doubts in Sadie. Desperate, Ben looks for dirt on Frank. Can he undermine Frank's authority and keep Sadie's heart? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Goofs

During the scene where the couple first meet the Pastor, the pastor's Family Feud-esque Board has 10 answers, but his controller has only one button. Therefore, he shouldn't be able to select between the different panels when they need to be flipped. It may be arguable that he could have it set to reveal in a predetermined order, but it's doubtful, considering that it seems like some answers were given in random order (Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's wife and Thou shalt not kill).

Another mediocre Robin Williams vehicle
7 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Robin Williams is certainly a very gifted comedian. It would be a sin to classify him as untalented. But somebody needs to send this guy some decent scripts. I think the problem is people feel that all you need to do is cast Robin as the lead, and viola! You've got yourself a hilarious comic romp! Weak writing is weak writing. End of story. The film is not without laughs. I certainly did laugh several times, but as you would expect, most of the good jokes are given away in the trailer. Altogether, "License to Wed" is a predictable romantic comedy filled with lots of sitcom-level humor. It's worth checking out on cable. Like I said, there are some laughs, and watching the gorgeous Mandy Moore certainly doesn't hurt either. But this is one of those comedies you'll probably forget soon after you've seen it.
