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

A surprisingly entertaining if predictable comedy
9 February 2015 | by (San Antonio) – See all my reviews

Sometimes a comedy doesn't need to do much to win someone like myself over. All a comedy needs is some actors with chemistry, amusing jokes, and a story that can hold my attention and I can be willing to forgive its flaws. The Wedding Ringer doesn't re-invent the wheel, but I certainly had a good time watching it spin.

Good: What propels this movie into watchable fluff is the cast. Josh Gad and Kevin Hart have good chemistry together and they shine in their scenes. They even make scenes that usually have me rolling my eyes like a dance scene in the middle of the movie into something fun. The supporting cast is funny within their stereotypes and it moves at a good pace.

Bad: The movie is very predictable. Every single beat is telegraphed two years in advanced and it doesn't sway away from it. The humor is also very sporadic throughout the movie when it came to the laughs.

Overall, it's not a bad movie. It is a good one to watch when you are bored at home. Entertaining comedy which in itself is a success considering some of the other movies that were released the last few months.
