Storyline

Two friends, John (played by Owen Wilson) and Jeremy (Vince Vaughn), crash weddings to pick up women.

Trivia

When Jeremy (Vince Vaughn) tells John (Owen Wilson), "You've crashed a million weddings, and you rocked them all", it is a reference to the Jon Bon Jovi song "Wanted Dead or Alive". The song contains the similar lyric, "I've seen a million faces, and I've rocked them all." See more »

Goofs

In the last scene in the church (at Jeremy's wedding), when John goes to kiss Claire, there is an error in the cut scene. When the shot is a close up, John is further away from Claire than the previous one (full shot). John's hands are also at a closer angle (although in the same position). See more »

Excellent summer movie
24 August 2005 | by ivkoSee all my reviews

This movie will never win an Oscar, but it still surprised me and became my favorite summer movie this year. The plot, as in all good summer comedies, is simple. Two guys who crash weddings to pick up woman have zany adventures and learn a little something along the way. The real fun of this movie is in the actors, who deliver their performances perfectly. Owen Wilson is the aging California surfer type who may be ready to move on with his life. Vince Vaughn is his best friend who frequently acts like a spoiled, horny child but is actually a good guy. Christopher Walken is the slightly scary father of the love interest. So if you have seen Wilson in Shanghai Noon and Vaughn in Swingers and Walken in, well almost anything he has ever made, then you have seen these characters before. But still, they just work well together here. The movie contains just enough real emotion to keep you caring and enough absurdity and broad physical comedy to keep you laughing. This isn't Shakespeare, but it is funny. Highly recommend.
