The Wedding Ringer

Kevin Hart (Ride Along), Josh Gad (Thanks for Sharing) and Kaley Cuoco (TV’s The Big Bang Theory) star in this comedy from first-time feature director Jeremy Garelick (writer of The Break-Up) about a loser with no friends who hires a guy to pose as the best man for his upcoming wedding.

Lacking a best man, Doug (Gad) is steered in the direction of a professional (Hart) who assembles a team of fake groomsmen, without the knowledge of Doug's fiance Gretchen (Cuoco) - luckily, since her seven bridesmaids are the motivation for at least one of the stand-ins to attend the wedding. As the couple's big day approaches, Doug finds himself moving heaven and earth in an attempt to keep his hair-brained scheme on track and under wraps.

The film’s lazy reliance on distraction extends to keeping its female lead underwritten and unsympathetic.

A certain derivative, deja-vu quality isn’t the only sin this lazy, numbingly routine, very occasionally amusing comedy commits.

One insidious issue with the film though is its repulsive chauvinism.

The Wedding Ringer Much like ‘The Wedding Singer' meets 'Wedding Crashers', with some 'Princess Bride’ & ‘Hangover’ thrown in. Great chick-flick film with lots of man-humour. Great roles an silly humour throughout. Don't expect too much from this, it's a good laugh, thought provoking in parts, and with (I felt) a cool ending. Genre : Comedy mostly, possibly...
