Storyline

Doug Harris (Josh Gad) is a lovable but socially awkward groom-to-be with a problem: he has no best man. With less than two weeks to go until he marries the girl of his dreams (Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting), Doug is referred to Jimmy Callahan (Kevin Hart), owner and CEO of Best Man, Inc., a company that provides flattering best men for socially challenged guys in need. What ensues is a hilarious wedding charade as they try to pull off the big con, and an unexpected budding bromance between Doug and his fake best man Jimmy. Written by Sony Pictures Entertainment

Trivia

Goofs

In the football scene between the groomsmen and old guys; after the first touchdown, the Father-in-Law shouts "touchdown, 7 to nothing." There was no extra point attempt or field goal. It was only 6-0. However, most pickup football games don't abide by the textbook rules of football (fewer players, less equipment, smaller fields, etc.) and thus it can be assumed that traditional scoring was also altered making the extra point automatic.

Not that funny! 3/10
12 July 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Review: This is yet another annoying movie from Kevin Hart, with loads of silly jokes and an unrealistic storyline. Its about a groom who doesn't have any friends so he can't come up with a best man for his wedding. He's referred to a "Best Man" agency who supply the perfect man for the job. The groom, played by Josh Gad, asks the agency for the "Golden Package" so the fake best man (Kevin Hart) recruits his close friends to help him with the job. The whole situation becomes a right mess because none of there stories match up but Hart and Gad become close and the groom realises that the marriage to his perfect bride, isn't what he needs in his life. The film is non-stop from the beginning to end and it felt like the director crammed in too much material. The jokes really aren't that great and the plot goes from one ridiculous scene to the next. The only thing that keeps the movie interesting is the relationship between the two main characters who brought light to the crazy situation. Apart from that, I really didn't find this movie that funny and the storyline became quite annoying after a while. Disappointing!

Round-Up: I really can't see how this movie made any money at the box office! There's obviously an audience for Kevin Hart's type of comedy because his movies always make a healthy profit. In this film, his jokes are quite toned down compared to his other movies like Ride Along, About Last Night and Think Like A Man but I still found him quite annoying. Josh Gad acts the same in all of his movies so I wasn't that surprised with his performance. It the first movie to be directed by Jeremy Garelick but he did write and produce the Break- Up with Jennifer Aniston and Vincent Vaughn. Personally, I think that this would have been much better if there was other actors playing the leads because the concept isn't that bad. 

Budget: $23million Worldwide Gross: $80million

I recommend this movie to people who are into their comedies about a groom who hires a best man for his wedding because he has a lack of close friends. 3/10
