Movie : License To Wed
adie Jones (Mandy Moore) has always longed to marry the man of her dreams in her family church. Though she has found her lifetime companion in Ben Murphy (John Krasinski), Sadie is distressed to learn that St. Augustine's has only one wedding slot available over the next two years, though after re-checking their planning book, they find that the wedding can be held in three weeks. While Sadie and Ben do qualify for the slot, the church's eccentric minister, Reverend Frank (Robin Williams), will not wed the couple until they agree to attend his prenuptial course (shortened, due to the new date, from three months to three weeks). Now as their wedding date draws near, Sadie and Ben must attend every one of Reverend Frank's unusual classes and complete a series of homework assignments designed specifically to irritate one another — in order to get past puppy love and ensure that their union will have a sound foundation.
I don't know why this movie got low box office because i enjoyed it. I mean Jim from "The Office" is in it and some other cameo's from Angela, Kevin and Kelly Kapur was great. Mandy Moore is reason enough to watch it, she looks good in this one, and the humor is something like the office which i love, the only thing that didn't work for me was the corny jokes of Robin Williams who clearly has seen better days and that kid he is with, he's just creepy like the twin robot baby's. The movie gets a lower score because of them but this movie is watchable and funny and true at times.
License To Wed.....7.5/10
