The Wedding Date
I thought this looked like a cute romantic comedy. I was disappointed. Debra Messing is darling – she’s pretty much doing a character similar to Grace from Will and Grace, but with straight hair – she looks great! And Dermot Mulroney is a looker, that’s for sure. But the premise� didn’t buy it. Not for one minute. He’s a hooker, she hires him to take her to her sister’s wedding in England because her ex-fiance is the best man and she wants everyone to think everything in her life is hunky-dorey. Somewhere along the way – and this must have wound up on the cutting room floor, because I didn’t see it! – the two fall in love. Hmmmm� the whole thing is just so questionable. I mean, he’s a hooker for crying out loud, and she falls into bed with him while she’s drunk, with no thought to “protection?” This is not an intelligent working woman. The movie is just 1 hour and 15 minutes long. I don’t feel like I got my money’s worth. Just plain dumb.
