With Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson as a pair of brazen wedding crashers, this buddy/romantic comedy milks a few big laughs from its foolproof premise. Under the direction of David Dobkin (who previously worked with Wilson on Shanghai Knights), the movie ranges from bawdy romp to mushy romance, and that tonal identity crisis curtails the overall hilarity. But when the well-teamed costars are firing on all pistons with fast-paced dialogue and manic situations, belly laughs are delivered at a steady clip. Things get complicated when the guys infiltrate the family of the Treasury Secretary (Christopher Walken), resulting in a romantic pair-off between Vaughn and the congressman's oversexed daughter Gloria (Isla Fisher) while Wilson sincerely woos another daughter, Claire (Rachel McAdams), who's unhappily engaged to an Ivy League cheater (Bradley Cooper). Walken is more or less wasted in his role, but Jane Seymour and Henry Gibson make amusing appearances, and a surprise guest arrives late in the game for some over-the-top scene-stealing. It's all a bit uneven, but McAdams (considered by some to be "the next Julia Roberts") is a pure delight, and with enough laughs to make it easily recommended, Wedding Crashers will likely find its place on DVD shelves alongside other flawed but enjoyable R-rated comedies that embrace a naughtier, nastier brand of humor with no need for apologies. --Jeff Shannon
- Vince Vaughn steals the movie
I like the interaction between Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson but Vince Vaughn was hilarious. The blu-ray disc has good picture quality. The deleted scenes are 24fps as well. Dialogue was clear throughout. Sound is directed from the front, little to no engagement of surrounds but this type of movie doesn't lend itself to showcase surrounds. Overall still an enjoyable movie for me....more info

- Rule #115: Never walk away in a funny jacket!
Wedding Crashers is an instant comedy classic. It is surprising that director David Dobkin hasn't done more. There was Clay Pigeons, with Vince Vaughn, but as a psycho, not a comedy. He worked with Owen Wilson on Shanghai Knights, but his resume is otherwise thin. Why hasn't Dobkin made more comedies? It is really remarkable. The chemistry between Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson is like it was between Vaughn and Jon Favreau in Swingers, because first and foremost, this is a buddy picture.
Jeremy Grey: John? I need to see you right away. It's important.
John Beckwith: [Walking into Jeremy's office] What's going on?
Jeremy Grey: [sighs] We got three big weeks ahead of us. It's wedding season, kid!
John Beckwith: You sandbaggin' son of a *****!
Jeremy Grey: I've got us down for 17 of them already.
John Beckwith: Okay, now how many of them have cash bars?
Jeremy Grey: Great question. I like where your head's at and two of them actually are, but I got us covered: Purple hearts. We won't have to pay for a drink all night.
John Beckwith: Oh, yeah. Perfect.
Jeremy Grey: We are gonna have tons and tons of opportunities to meet gorgeous ladies that get so aroused by the thought of marriage that they'll throw their inhibitions to the wind.
John Beckwith: And who's gonna be there to catch them?
Jeremy Grey: Grab that net and catch that beautiful butterfly, pal! What do you like better, Christmas or Wedding Season?
[Jeremy raises his hand]
John Beckwith: Mr. Grey?
Jeremy Grey: Yes. The answer would be, um, Wedding Season?
John Beckwith: Bingo! I'm gonna get my suit. Now who are we this time?
But it is also a great romantic comedy, and Isla Fisher and Rachel McAdams are gorgeous and fantastic--also great chemistry with Vince and Owen, respectively. Finally, it is a coming of age story where a lesson is learned about the value of commitment, but marriage doesn't have to mean the end of fun.
Jeremy Grey: Gloria, I've been doing a lot of soul searching recently, and I think I'm ready to take this relationship, our relationship to the next level.
Gloria Cleary: Jeremy, I am so ready to take it to the next level.
Jeremy Grey: Really?
Gloria Cleary: Yeah. Do you want to watch me with another girl? How about those Brazilian twins we met at the ball game?
Jeremy Grey: I was thinking more along the lines of an engagement.
Gloria Cleary: Oh Jeremy, I do!
Jeremy Grey: I love you.
Gloria Cleary: I love you.
So, it is like having your wedding cake and eating it, too. This movie has something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a six pence in her shoe--succeeding on so many levels, as buddy picture, romance, and coming of age; but mainly, it is always funny, no matter what level it is currently succeeding on.
Claire Cleary: What is true love?
John Beckwith: True love is your soul's recognition of its counterpoint in another.
Claire Cleary: It's a little cheesy but I like it.
John Beckwith: I read it on a bumper sticker!
Plus, the best wedding disruption since 'The Graduate.'
Jeremy Grey: Do you know what that awareness is, Gloria?
Gloria Cleary: What?
Jeremy Grey: That we're all one. That separateness is an illusion, and that I'm one with everyone - with the Prime Minister of England, and my cousin Harry, you and me, the fat kid from 'What's Happening,' the Olsen twins, Natalie Portman, the guy who wrote 'Catcher in the Rye,' Nat King Cole, Carrot Top, Jay-Z, Weird Al Yankovic, Harry Potter, if he existed, the whore on the street corner, your mother. We're all one.

- Tacky, Crass and Disappointing
Three years plus after this movie came out, finally borrowed it from the local library. I remember the previews as being pretty funny and wanting to see the whole movie. What a waste of time! Two unethical sleazeballs crash weddings for free food and free sex...what's romantic about that?? They get attached to one of the world's most dysfunctional families and everyone except one daughter (played by Rached Mcadams who is lovely) acts like a total butt head. The only reason I gave it 2 stars is because I like Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson (not necessarily together) both of whom have been in much better/funnier movies. This is NOT a movie you will remember or want to view twice....more info
- An awful lot better than you might be expecting...
The Wedding Crashers is a rare thing in comedy films - a flick with an almost non-existent point to its story, yet it is riddled with sophisticated humour and a fairly cohesive, enjoyable plot. The film can be split into two if we try and assign a genre to it; it is either a Romance film, or it is a Comedy film. It is not a Rom-Com in the classical sense - it's too silly in places for that. One thing it does particularly well, though, is fulfil its role as a feel-good film, and might - just might - see you looking at areas of your own relationships in a slightly different way.
The film's greatest strength lies in the sheer range of well-defined characters. All of them are integral to the film's substance, but the interplay between Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughan is especially important. The buddy-buddy feel that predominates through the first two thirds of the film gives rise to some of the most memorable lines and quotes I think I can remember from recent films. The roles played by Christopher Walken, and his family, are fantastic. A true achiever in Hollywood, Walken brings his "ever-so-slightly-creepy" acting style into line with his obvious comedic talents to sublime effect - perhaps a precursor to his amusing but slightly unnerving role as an Angel of Death in "Click!". The inclusion of Will Ferrel as the ninja-master of 'crashing may not be to everyone's taste, but his role is kept to a minimal, and is actually particularly funny.
The plot is fairly predictable, so I won't go into it at length; basically two best friends who have daytime jobs as divorce mediates get their kicks out of gatecrashing local weddings, picking up emotional girls and then moving on. The film develops by forcing them to look at the irresponsibility of their behaviour, and offers them both ways out of it in the form of the two lead female characters.
But be aware that this one isn't necessary so run of the mill as other comparable movies. It has something slightly more, and that's what makes it worth your while watching on a friday night, as opposed to one of the other generic rom-com clones that have infected the shelves of your local video store recently.
So, a good one to catch as the weekend begins, and you want something to laugh about (that doesn't require too much of that ever-so-absent friday night brain power!). Enjoy!...more info
Very vulgar and degrading. It is a shame that there is a market for this junk. This will appeal to those who are flippant about sexual ethics. Catholics should find this offensive because it makes a mockery out of a Sacrament. Vince Vaughn plays a very contemptible fellow. There are much better ways to use your time and money....more info
- A funny comedy for a change
Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson play friends and business partners that spend their summers crashing weddings so they can find an attractive female guest and sleep with them. They have characters and scenarios for themselves for each wedding and a long list of rules for how to properly crash a wedding and not get caught. Things change when they crash the wedding of one of the daughters of the secretary of the treasury played by Christopher Walken. Wilson falls hard for another daughter played by Rachel McAdams. Vaughn meanwhile slips away with yet another daughter, sleeps with her and then finds out too late that she's nuts. They get invited back to the family home for the weekend and accept because Wilson is trying to woo McAdams away from her lout of a fiancee.
Wedding Crashers has some very funny scenes. Wilson and Vaughn work well together as friends and their interactions and banter at the weddings are fluid. The movie bogs down some with Wilson trying to win McAdams and everyone in the treasury secretary's family having a quirk to deal with. The ending also drags but overall this was a funny comedy....more info
- Good Movie That Inspired Poor Behavior
The Wedding Crashers is a case of a good movie that inspired a rude fad. The movie itself is very funny and is a good comedy. However, it inspired all sorts of copycat behavior. As a result, many weddings came to need such expensive accoutrements such as extra security and sending tickets for admission in the wedding invitations.
The Wedding Crashers comes well recommended provided that you don't try any wedding crashing yourself. ...more info
- uncorked! =)
this movie is hilarious. wilson and vaughn are great in it. if you liked it in the theater, you will like this dvd, you motorboatin' son of a gun! ;) ...more info
do you like the original wedding crashers?
of course you do. this is just like that only more laughs.
stop reading this and buy it!...more info
- Unbelievably hilarious
An outrageous comedy with Vince Vaughn. Two proclaimed wedding crasher bachelors come up with hilarious lies to hook up with wedding guest. Then one has to land this one girl who already has a man. Somewhat predictable but still funny. Must see for Vince Vaughn fans....more info
- Greatest comedy
This movie can be summed up in two words. F-ckin' hilarious. Cop it now, it's worth it....more info
- This isn't funny at all.
Funny, you have got to be kidding. I usually like Owen Wilson's movies, but this is frat house slepstick that died. But not soon enough. Don't waste you time on this one....more info
- 2 stars out of 4
The Bottom Line:
Wedding Crashers succeeds in amusing audiences for its first half, but wears out its welcome by switching abruptly from anarchic comedy to uninspired, formulaic romance....more info

Wedding Crashers starring Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn is somewhat funny but it is not a comedy classic like everyone has said. The acting is ok, Isla Fisher and Rachel McAdams steal the movie, they play sisters in the film - one is crazy the other is down-to-earth. Christopher Walken seems very out of place and Jane Seymour is not a hot cougar, ugh! There are some good laughs but mostly this movie is over-rated....more info
- Great Comedy
Has a nice romantic story line, but the comedy in this movie makes it far from a chick flick! ...more info
- Shallow, but not as bad as I expected
On the plus side, this is the first time I've found Owen Wilson compelling. Though not given much to work with in terms of actual comedy, his comic timing was spot-on. Vince Vaughn did everything he needed to do as well.
However, the film had a flimsy premise, and was essentially one big cliche after another.
2.5, rounded up to 3....more info

- I can do without Owen Wilson(blah!)This film is funny anyway.
Vince Vaughn is the MAN! this movie is really funny, hillarious cameo by Will Ferrell....more info
- just outrageously funny
A slide-spliting comedy of young love. This movie is not only quirky but also romantic. The actors are perfectly cast for a convincing look into the minds of two young men on the hunt for sexual encounters, which evolved into the experience of love and meaningful relationship. Bravo to the writers and cast. In my opinion, you'll adore this movie while at the same time laughing and having fun....more info
