The Wedding Crashers (2005)

Owen Wilson (John), Vince Vaughn (Jeremy), Christopher Walken (William Cleary), Rachel McAdams (Claire)

Directed by David Dobkin (Shanghai Knights)

From IMDB: "John Beckwith and Jeremy Grey, a pair of committed womanizers who sneak into weddings to take advantage of the romantic tinge in the air, find themselves at odds with one another when John meets and falls for a well-to-do daughter."

A quick review now, because this film merits now considerable discussion. It was funny, but with a lower laugh per minute ratio than we experienced with The 40-Year Old Virgin. The best, by far, was Vince Vaughn's face at the dinner table...

Rachel McAdams... I am still undecided about her. Nice enough girl, great laugh, shapely, but her three major appearances in The Notebook, Red Eye and this film have not solidified in my mind. I do not dislike her, but I have not found any special spark or quality that will compel me to see movies in which she stars. Time will tell.

I loved the "wedding crashers" sequence about twenty or thirty minutes into the film! One of my favourite action scenes of 2005. The way the editing and music build and build and build...

The dinner table and Vince tied to the bed were my fav parts of the movie. Highlight quotes were:
*We had a moment at the dinner table didn't we?
*You may kiss the first mate
and the top line
*I'd like to be cowboys from Arizona or pimps from Oakland but it's not Halloween. Grow up; Peter Pan, Count Chocula.
