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

When Ben Murphy comes back to the apartment, he enters the first door on the left, which is the door that Sadie Jones's neighbor came out of earlier in the movie. Later in the movie the first door on the left appears to be a storage closet, and Reverend Frank goes in the correct second door. See more »

Quotes

Reverend Frank: [at the wedding reception] The rings.
Sadie Jones: [looks at the inscription] "Never to fart"?
Ben Murphy: Oh, my god... I didn't change it! I'm gonna change it right when I get back, I promise I will...
Sadie Jones: No, no, no. Bite your tongue, 'cause I wouldn't want it changed for anything in the whole world.

Bad Robin Williams "comedy", in a sea of bad Robin Williams "comedies".
20 January 2008 | by See all my reviews

Disappointing to say the least. Where is the old Robin, I sure miss him, and I sure as hell am not the only one. Clichéd wedding movie with Robin as a crazy pastor who takes soon-to-be married couples through grueling challenges to see if they are worthy enough to be married in his church. Basically, an unfunny script is all the writers could muster, as the only funny bits are but two and both of them are shown in the trailers. John Krasinski is horrible in this movie, which is a shame (after seeing this movie, I almost immediately played The Office on my Tivo to forget his embarrassing and crappy performance). Mandy Moore is still Mandy Moore: Beautiful and talentless when working with lazy scripts. And Robin, poor Robin; stop appearing in these types of movies! We love you, but we hate it when you waste your talent on crap such as this. In the end, don't bother with this bland and unfunny movie, a 3/10, avoid!
