There are three alternate endings on the DVD.
1. Paul stays at the church after the wedding guests have left. Becky comes back looking for her purse and finds Paul lying on one of the benches. She asks him if he's going to be there all day and he says he isn't. Then she invites him to go for a walk. They stroll together down the streets.
2. After the wedding scene, a montage follows of Paul asking people where Becky is. When he finally gets a lead, he finds Becky as a tour guide atop the Space Needle. This one was not used because preview audiences felt Paul took too long in trying to find her.
3. Same as Space Needle ending, only Paul gets to Becky fairly soon and there is no search montage. After they decide to be together, they go to the elevator and run into Minister Ferris and his family but with less tension this time.
A much as I like Jason Lee,this is a brain-dead, incredibly derivative date movie that has been done dozens of times before. I really wonder who goes to see these things. Lee plays his usual hapless schmo who wakes up to find a naked blonde (Stiles) in his bed on the morning after his bachelor party. His fiancée (Blair) is on the way over to his apartment at that very moment, f course. I suspect you do not need to have me say anything more about the plot. The moment we see Stiles and Blair, we know where this is going. The lowest of low points in this bogus comedy is when Lee tries to explain away Stiles' panties, which Blair finds in his toilet tank. As he haltingly tells her that he bought them for her, she buys his explanation, and at that point, I wanted to crawl under my couch and die. The wedding finale is similarly cringe-inducing. Blair, a decent-enough actress, is such a pretty young thing to be wasted in such dreck. But then again, it's a paycheck. This is assembly-line movie-making that Hollywood should have given up making long ago. It's not even up to modern TV sitcom standards. I suspect the script was throw together by a roomful of monkeys taking turns typing on an old typewriter.
