This movie was amazing! Debra Messing is a wonderful actress! She made the story believable :) 10/10

"THE WEDDING DATE"(2005) There are only three reasons to see this movie: You are either a fan of Debra Messing, a fan of Dermot Mulroney, or you just love "chick flicks." This movie is an American-Brit chick flick light with a highly implausible "meet cute" situation that is a reversal of 1990's "Pretty Woman."

The two leads, Debra Messing and Dermot Mulroney, are more than attractive enough in this film which otherwise has been given little original thought. That being said, the movie is fun and occasionally witty and the characters are well played by solid actors who deserve a better script.

Like cotton candy, this cinematic fluff will entertain those who love chick flicks, but, also like cotton candy, no thought about it will be carried out of the theater after the film is over.

Grade - C, Recommended? No, Neutral to Negative.

A movie review by Carl Zapffe (02/20/05)


Enough of it. This bittersweet comedy is a truly horrible movie. It's not worth anybody's attention and it needs to be silenced. Debra Messing has a few good lines and occasionnally, you may crack a smile. Besides that, it's no fun at all. Unrealistic (would you pay 6000$ for a wedding escort?!) and unfunny may be the words that describe Wedding Date. Seems like a desperate producer has sticked every clich




Shoot...me....now....

'The Wedding Date' is an awful, hideous, terrible, appalling, nauseating, repulsive and vile film. A "decroded piece of crap" to quote Napoleon.

In my defence, I didn't want to see it. I was dragged along. I knew it was going to be bad but I was totally unprepared for the absolute, unprecedented level of grotesque "comedy" that was to be unleashed.

The dialogue is terrible but the acting is worse.

Lets make this easy: 'Wedding Date' is a festering piece of shit and should be destroyed immediately to save all of humanity.

There is nothing more to say.
There are two different kinds of bad movies, there are the ones that have clear objectives and fail miserably at trying to attain them, and these are usually the type of bad movies that find their way onto my list of the worst movies of that year. On the other hand, there are those bad movies that you do not end up hating because you could not help but shake your head or laugh at the absurdity being presented up on the screen; The Wedding Date starring Debra Messing is one such film.

Debra Messing plays Kat, a women who has not seen her family in two years, has to fly to London for her sister's wedding, has been dumped by her fianc
:rotten: (5/10) Alien vs. Predator (2004):

Paul W.S. Anderson does it again! The laughing stock of the fanboys, and king of the mediocre delivers yet another slick piece of crap. An absurd storyline that throws out everything that made the Alien flicks so strikingly incredible, and made the Predator series so damned enjoyable, coupled with some textbook bad acting, irritating editing and a script that would make Doris Wishman proud make this, well - sadly - probably Paul Anderson's best movie! There are two reasons to see this movie: (1) You're a big Alien and/or Predator fan and you think you can overlook the rest of the movie to see a pretty wicked showdown between the two legendary film creatures or (2) You're in dire need of a way to kill two hours and your only other options involve the Olsen twins and copious amounts of lubricant.

:rotten: (4/10) The Wedding Date (2004):

I'm about to impart upon you the best way to make a bad movie a whole hell of alot worse: Watch it on the plane. This was this case when I saw the Wedding Date. It adheres to just about every romantic comedy rule in the books, it's badly acted, written, directed, decorated, and my goddamn seat wouldn't go back far enough. The only, ONLY good thing I can say about this movie is that Debra Messing is a babe.

:rotten: (3/10) Kids (1995):

I hate this movie not because I was offended by it, or because Larry Clark was masturbating behind the camera during every single shot of the film (even though I'm relatively sure he was), but because the movie is such a blatent criticism of youths sexual antics. The film feels so hypocritical - almost as though you can hear Larry Clark screaming about the lack of morality in teens today, whilst tempting children into the back of his "Love Mobile" with the promise of candy, video games and a little concoction he likes to call "Loosey Goosey". I'm roughly Telly's age, I will tell you right now that I don't know anyone, not a single person, that wouldn't be absolutely disgusted by anyone with his lack of sexual ethics.

:rotten: (2/10) Evolution (2001):

The best description of the movie theatre I have ever heard is that it is, quite simply, a church. And the commercials at the beginning is like the market in bible, in which Jesus expresses his displeasure with the defiling of the house of god by tearing them a new one. If Evolution was that passage in the bible, Jesus would've walked in wearing a No Fear t-shirt and drinking a Pepsi. I hate, hate, hate sloppy and stupid product placement. I don't care if it was meant to be a joke, or if it was meant to try and recreate the much funnier Stay-Puft product placement at the end of Ivan Reitman's much better Ghostbusters - the movie came off as one big, stupid commercial for Head & Shoulders and it ruined what could've at least been mediocre fun.

:rotten: (1/10) The Life of David Gale (2003):

This movie has two good elements: Kate Winslet and Kevin Spacey, who put much more effort into the script than it deserved. This is one of the worst movies I've ever seen. I'm not ashamed to say I never call the endings of movies. The big "twist" - I almost never get it. This one, I called the second that bitch put herself out of my misery. By the time the ending finally came - I actually threw something at the screen.

The movie tries sooo hard to come off as "passionate liberal", but fails. Miserably. Every character comes off as a psychopathic leftist. As someone who would consider himself to be quite liberal, I was more than a little annoyed. I don't know if Charles Randolphe, the writer, actually IS handicapped, and if he is, then I sincerely apologize for saying that this was one of the most retarded scripts ever written. My theory: Charles Randolphe is actually a conservative, hellbent on making liberals who appose to death penalty look like pitiful extremists. Either way, this came from the worst end of one side of the political spectrum.

And the kicker... this movie has a 7.1 rating on IMDb. Higher than American Psycho. Higher than Mad Max. Higher than the remake of War of the Worlds! The same rating as Napoleon Dynamite! Higher, even, than The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension. I'm hurt.
WELL, I DIDN'T THINK IT WAS SO BAD. IT'S NO NOTTING HILL, BUT I ENJOYED IT AND THOUGHT THE STARS DID A DECENT JOB. LIKEABLE.
Eu admito: eu sou um f
