License to Wed

License to Wed
A comedy that follows Ben Murphy (John Krasinski) and his fiancée, Sadie Jones (Mandy Moore), in their quest to live happily ever after.

The problem is that Sadie's family church is run by Reverend Frank (Robin Williams), who won't bless Ben and Sadie's union until they pass his 'fool-proof' marriage-prep course.

Consisting of outrageous classes, outlandish homework assignments and some outright invasion of privacy, Reverend Frank's rigorous curriculum puts Ben and Sadie's relationship to the test. Forget happily ever after – do they even have what it takes to make it to the altar?

Just when you think you've seen the lousiest movie of the year, along comes Robin Williams with something even more excruciating...

I'd actually recommend this. You may have forgotten that Robin Williams was one of the most brilliant standups in the world. You may also have forgotten how bad a spectacularly awful film can be. Williams has been a parody of himself for many years but fans of him (as I grew up as) have always hoped he could move beyond his usual characature and...
