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

When Ben climbs in the window of Reverend Frank's house the window changes from one with a smaller piece of glass and a large frame to one with a larger piece of glass and the frame holding the glass is smaller. Also the size of the window seems to change to a bigger window overall when you see Ben coming through. See more »
Sadie Jones? Little Sadie Jones! How you've grown.
And now my Sadie Jones is gonna tie the knot.
I am. I'm so sorry I haven't been around for the last, like...
Yeah. I've just been trying to get my business started, and...
Oh, please. Please. You go to a liberate college, you have a bisexual rommate, you forget about God. Don't sweat it. He doesn't forget about you.

A disaster of a comedy. . .almost better as a horror film.
This movie was terrible.
I was more than a little tempted to just get up and walk out early in the movie, when it just wasn't funny. I thought maybe it would pick up and really get going soon, it didn't. It tries to be a romantic comedy, and what little chemistry exists between the couple is ruined by Robin Williams trying to be funny while doing unfunny things. Instead he comes off as a creepy, sadistic voyeur with a phony veneer of humor (and a minister having a prepubescent boy sidekick with him at apparently all times day and night is more than a little creepy in it's own right).
There isn't a single funny joke in the film that's not in the trailer, not one. There are a lot of gags that fall flat though.
The whole thing made me miss the time when Robin Williams in a movie was a sign it was going to be a great film.
In retrospect, I should have gone with my hunch and just walked out early, and saved myself the time.
