The Wedding Ringer
Let's be honest. This movie has terrible written all over it. A comedy about a loser who has no friends but somehow manages to get a hot chick to agree to marry him, so he hires a wedding ringer to play his best man and provide the rest of the groomsmen? Cast with an ensemble of B and C-listers? I would have bet hard cash that this would've sucked the big one. And yet, I laughed. A lot. I'm not proud of it, mind you. But this movie is funnier than it has any right to be.
Grade: B+ (and maybe should be an A- ... but I can't really give this an A-, can I?)
Who is this movie for? Anyone with a stupid sense of humor who enjoys stupid movies like Dumb and Dumber and wants to enjoy a lot of laughs this weekend. It may be a guilty pleasure, but whatever because it was a pleasure nonetheless.
