'Wedding Daze' is an easy going, light hearted comedy starring Jason Biggs and Isla Fisher. The idea isn't that original but the actors throw themselves into it so wholeheartedly that you don't really notice. There are a few laugh out loud moments and the rest in pretty amusing too. It isn't too long so you shouldn't get bored. Overall this film is inoffensive and fairly amusing, worth a viewing if you've a spare afternoon to kill.Feel free to check out my blog which can be found on my profile page.
This is a fairly decent bunch of actors coping as best they can with ahorrible mish-mash of a script. Absolutely none of the characters areeven believable types, let alone genuine individuals who can carry astory. The result is a series of 'situations' - one imagines the scriptwriters saying 'wouldn't it be funny if the main character dreadsintroducing his parents because they're psychotics into kinky sex' -without any thought of how that situation may affect or influence thenature of that character. And almost none of the situations actuallydrove the story. But even that might have been OK if the situationsweren't all entirely at a brainless teenage level ('The Bridge toTerabithia', also in cinemas at the moment and supposedly aimed atyounger (8 years old and upwards) viewers, is leagues ahead inintelligence and the way it involves its audience in the characters).I enjoy fairly silly comedies like 'Gremlins' - even the charactertypes in that film are consistent and are given a believable context(the way they live, their relationships with other people etc) - but Icame out of 'Wedding Daze' (as it's been marketed in the UK) feelingI'd wasted a good hour and a half and the price of three tickets (Iwent with my wife and son).
I didn't know what to expect from 'Wedding Daze' aka 'The Pleasure ofYour Company'. Then I saw that it starred Jason Biggs and Isla Fisherand I thought why not give it a go. At first I thought it was anotherAmerican comedy with the usual toilet humour. It also started off realslow but soon it picks up and gets funnier. I ended up laughing a lotas I quite enjoyed the film.Of course the story is a typical romantic comedy and all but the comedyis very situational and most of the jokes are funny. I personallyenjoyed the sequence where the whole cast is in jail. You've got thesentimental fluffy humour and the sex comedy which mingle quite well.Perhaps some of the jokes could have been a little toned down,especially the sexual humour. Also a few of the jokes just aren't funnyand some situations look forced. Some of the punchlines just miss themark.Jason Biggs and Isla Fisher form quite a likable fresh pair. There is asweet chemistry and the actors blend quite well. However Biggs is alittle in his 'American Pie' mode. From the supporting cast, I lovedJoanna Gleeson. She was absolutely hilarious in the jail scene. Therest of the cast work well too.This is quite an enjoyable flick and works well for a rainy day or as adate movie.
It starts off as standard romantic comedy fayre but builds intosomething very enjoyable. The odd characters around the leads make thewhole piece surprisingly entertaining. I enjoyed this film much morethan most romantic comedies I have seen, and I have seen a fair few. Icannot easily write much more of a review about this or any romanticcomedy without being very dull and detailed: I do not believe anyonecan. Romantic comedy is not really a film genre that has a lot ofsubstance. Even this film, which I enjoyed and made me laugh out loudin places, does not warrant a lengthy review! I could probably giveaway the whole plot in five lines!
There was a reason this went directly to DVD. It should have gone directly in the garbage can. I am dumber after watching this movie. This movie is terrible. I'm glad I was able to get it free at the library as I would have been mad if I spent a dime. I gave it one star as both parents of both main characters did have a few funny things going but other than that...train wreck.
This review is from: Wedding Daze (Amazon Instant Video) I could not agree more. This must be the most colossal waste of time and money I have ever witnessed. I really enjoy Isla Fisher as an actress. So, I decided I would rent this movie, and give it a go. I can NOT continue to watch this, as I fear my IQ will drop to about 03. There really are not any words sufficient to convey just how much a waste of time this movie is;so I am going to stop right here, and say so long and good riddance.
It wasn't that bad, It was surprising good and heart warming. A movie doesn't need to be pioneering or edgy it just needs to be entertaining and this movie was very entertaining. It was refreshing in that it wasn't edgy or trying to hard. I've seen every movie to come out in 2007 and 2008 and this was far from the worst of them. With all the bad reviews I'm sure it will suck for most people, but give it a chance.
If you really like comedies,you will enjoy this film.For me it was oneof the best comedy film I have ever seen.Jason Biggs(I must say I am abig fan of Jason Biggs) as always is fantastic and Isla Fisher has alsoa great preforming.The film is very funny and there are a lot of funnysituations that make the movie Excellent.There are other actors as Ebon Moss-Bachrach(Matador), HeatherGoldenhersh (Jane) or Michael Weston (Ted) that also contribute to makethe film even funnier.Maybe is a not very common situation,but it what it makes the filmdifferent from the other Romantic Comedies.Excellent
I have not seen a movie so simple and touching for a long time. The casts are easy and the whole story is so romantic (somewhat not very real). I would recommand this movie to all the people who lives with love. This is a wonderful movie. I need one for my collection.
I saw this movie on Netflix Instant Queue and saw Jason Biggs and IslaFisher on the cover...two actors who I've never disliked...so I gavethis movie a shot. I walked in expecting a pretty terrible movie but Iwas pleasantly surprised. Basically, the movie is about how Jason Biggsrandomly proposes to Isla Fisher on the basis of how spontaneous andromantic it is and Isla Fisher says yes. The rest of the movie is the"getting to know each other and falling in love" story. Now, in no waywas this movie what I would call "amazing"; the plot was predictable,the acting was mediocre, and there was no evidence of outstandingdirection, musical composition, or cinematography. But there's just acertain special magic present in the awkward, teen-oriented romanticcomedy. Jason Biggs is just perfect at playing the role that made himfamous...the awkward, embarrassing guy. Isla Fisher is gorgeous andfunny...but mainly gorgeous and fills out her role well. Even JoeyPants (Joe Pantoliano) is in this movie. All in all, Wedding Daze is afun romp that's worth 90 minutes of time you planned on wasting anyway.
Not great and not Bad either, "The pleasure off your company" is whatis supposed to be, a "chick movie". Went to watch this movie just for fun and didn't expected much, but itbecame a surprise because is not an ordinary romantic comedy, it assome of the greatest jokes i've ever seen in this kind of movies. The awkward scenes between Jason and Isla, are really great, very lightcomedy but yet not cheap, my personal favorite is the one in the bus...memorable. The cast is reasonable with Jason Biggs getting a very good lead, usingis American Pie style, and Isla Fisher with is crazy performanceresembling to her part in Wedding Crashers.Note for the Jason'sparents, very hilarious moments.So i'll give it a 6 because of the good "stand-up like comedy" parts,but nothing else, because like i said before is "chick movie"
There are bad movies. There are stupid movies. There are silly, pointless romantic comedies. For others, there should be a scale of badness that's entirely their own. This movie is that movie.Movies like American Pie and There's Something About Mary are smart stupid comedies, movies like Wedding Daze are just plain stupid.If you thought Good Luck Chuck and Shallow Hal were horrible, wait until you see the outrageously, intolerable gags in this lowly film.The whole script is a tutorial on how not to write a screenplay. The entire movie is a Filmmaking 101 lesson - how not to make movies. It's a shame that good actors such as Jason Biggs and Isla Fisher were used, abused rather.There's usually a reason for not releasing movies in the theater, and this movie rightfully set on the shelf for two years before getting a straight-for-DVD release last week. Nonetheless, that was not enough - in this movie's case, the tape it was recorded on should've been destroyed.
Great movie? No but entertaining and , though a stretch, has lots of believable moments. If you like feel good flicks, give it a shot!
Well, Isla Fisher is quickly becoming one of my favorite actresses. From "Wedding Crashers" to "Definitely Maybe" and now this. She is the lone bright spot in an otherwise bland, contrived, weak story. I feel so bad for Jason Biggs. Even though he is 10 years older, he is still stuck as poor Jim from "American Pie" and always will be until he starts taking on some roles with meaning. His schtick wasn't completely juvenile in this movie but that was more than compensated for by his parents. They were two of the most misplaced, disgusting characters I've seen in what is billed as a romantic comedy.Like I said, without Isla Fisher this would be 1/2 star but she at leasts makes this movie just painful.
This movie's plot HAD potential. I don't know where it went, but it WASN'T in the final cut of the movie. Not that the main actors involved didn't turn in good performances. Jason Biggs has gotten his one-trick pony of pathologically-spastic-eccentric-geek-stunts/"potty humor" performance down pat. (Not as much of a compliment as that might sound, Jason!) Isla Fisher turns out to be the bright side of this movie, turning in a fresh and genuine performance that nicely compliments her physical beauty.Love is not an emotion--contrary to popular opinion. Love is a decision. Even the best relationships do not FEEL the emotion all the time. This movie COULD have chosen to emphasize the fact that in all marriages there comes a time when you must continue to CHOOSE to love the other person. That love is a decision you make daily, is the mechanism of how arranged marriages have worked down through the ages in multiple cultures. (Don't get me wrong--I'm not advocating arranged marriages; this is just to illustrate and emphasize my point.) By its wild exaggeration of decision over emotion, the premise of this movie could have made the point that a committed marriage CAN result from sheer force of wills and the valuing of commitment. The movie COULD HAVE chosen to emphasize these positive things that are sorely needed in this age of near-universal devaluation of marriage and easy divorce--but it didn't. Instead, it emphasizes the feelings which most people confuse with love anyway. By the glorification of entering into marriage frivolously, it suggests that love and a stable marriage can come without thought, without doing any the SANE things that dating couples should be doing prior to marriage to discern whether someone is a proper mate. In the process, it takes every opportunity to demean and degrade the institute and sacrament of marriage.Sadly, there are also several examples of the "lowest common denominator" bathroom humor and impurity/immorality that one associates with Jason Biggs and the "American Pie" crowd. There is some good writing in this movie, and several (non-bathroom humor) laugh-out-loud moments. Those and the aforementioned performance by Isla Fisher are the reasons I didn't give this only one star. This is a good movie to see for free--and even then you may feel cheated. I certainly recommend against buying it. The DVD is of average quality, with scant extra features--but then again, perhaps that's a plus.
This is one of those movies where a lot depends on how you feel goingin. If you're in a good mood and aren't looking for anything great,Wedding Daze will happily fill up an hour and a half. If you're lookingfor another American Pie or Clerks, though, I'd give this a miss.Really, there are about a dozen hilarious moments scattered about thismovie. Unfortunately, they're surrounded by underwritten characters,mediocre acting and a cookie-cutter plot. Jason Biggs is still playingthe same character he did in American Pie. Isla Fisher has an extremelyconvincing American accent but that's about it. And despite flashes ofbrilliance, everyone else seems to be a little embarrassed to be here.Really, I'd say wait for the DVD.(Oh, and for you dirty old men out there, there's a truly delightfulscene of Isla Fisher early on parading around in her underwear. Itmakes absolutely no sense plot-wise but six months from now, a bunch of13-year-old boys with cable are going to be very, very happy.)
Run away from this thing. It just oscillates wildly between boredom andembarrassment, dancing on a hard to believe plot. The comedy is done(or it is attempted) only through gross exaggerations. The boyfriend istotally lame, the pretender turns out to be gay, the girlfriend dies ofheart attack when she is proposed to, the father is a convict, themother a horrible witch, etc. And Jason Biggs just navigates thesetroubled waters with a silly new yorkish look on his face, makingpassive sarcastic remarks like "oh, look, I am normal, everybody elseis just ridiculous and funny!".The only good thing about this movie was cute Isla Fisher, although shetoo screamed a bit too much. Bottom line: avoid at all costs. I willforget it in a few minutes, tired and already missing my wasted twohours of precious time.
With Wedding Daze (formally The Pleasure of Your Company), the directorial debut from Michael Ian Black, I expected a romantic comedy in the vein of Wedding Crashers... though that is probably only because both star Isla Fisher... what I got, though, was a gag-full American Pie-esque romp centering on two individuals with just the right amount of crazy that makes it hard to root for them either separately, let alone together.When the opening credits rolled, I clapped with glee over the potential: Joanna Gleason (Kim from Friends) played Katie (Fisher)'s mother, a skeletal Joe Pantoliano as her father, Heather Goldenhersh (Lizzy Caplan's sister on The Class) as her best friend, and Matt Malloy as her adoptive father... not to mention the aforementioned Edward Herrmann as Anderson (Jason Biggs)'s father. Herrmann is a man I've loved since he played Macaulay Culkin's father in Richie Rich, and I will pretty much give anything he's in a try, allowing it the benefit of the doubt because he's such a classy, intelligent actor that he must choose his projects with care. His first scene in Wedding Daze made me shake my head and exclaim: "Oh, Richard Gilmore, no. Just no!" as his on-screen wife licked whipped cream from his face. Unfortunately the ones that followed (presenting his son with his c*ck ring; watching two naked women less than half his age make out on a rug in front of a fire in his living room) just proved that not even the cast could save this crude romantic comedy.Wedding Daze starts off simply enough: a young romantic's whole world crashes down around him when the girlfriend to whom he is in the middle of proposing collapses on the floor in front of him. He spirals, needless to say, and decides on an impetuous whim to propose to the woman currently waiting on him in some roadhouse diner. Luckily, she is just as spontaneous (read: nuts) as he is, and though she had been pondering a proposal from her Charades-loving boyfriend, she needs nothing but a split second to scream in joy and accept the hand (though no ring) of Anderson. Fisher is one of a handful of this generation's true comedic gems, whose talent would be best suited in a female-centric piece in which she can really shine. Needless to say, Wedding Daze is not one such piece, and in it, she is forced to take a backseat to prop humor (a diaphragm ending up in a sandwich... is that the best you could do? Really?) and the much more one-note Biggs. He relies on his bright white smile to endear his audiences, but years after first winning them over as a big-eyed, geek-chic teenager, the act (like himself) has just grown old; he has not matured.Katie and Anderson go through the usual dance of trying to fit into one another's worlds and overcoming the obstacles of different families and friends but still come out on the other side wanting to get married. I think they have known each other for about four days at that point. The movie picks up quickly from there, as the duo steal a car to elope, all the while Katie's mother and biological father hold up a hardware store to get their daughter the money for a proper wedding. Arresting chaos ensues, including a cameo standoff with Rob Corddry, and Katie delivers her "Despite all of our insane obstacles and the red flags advising us otherwise, I want to be with you" speech while both families are behind bars. Her words-from-the-heart (or perhaps the gun she shoots at the ceiling) is somehow enough to convince everyone (perhaps because it's the eight-minute mark, and for a comedy this thin, that's nearing the end) because thirty seconds later, they are marching down the aisle at the little Atlantic City wedding chapel at which her own parents eloped twenty-odd years ago. The Reverend tells the happy couple that he can personally guarantee anyone who marries at his establishment will be happy forever, but it's way too late for the love affair with this movie.(Though I will admit the "Jewnicorn" and "Jewlahoop" did elicit a chuckle.)Wedding Daze should have ended there, but Black (who was a hybrid on this project) just couldn't end on a genuinely sweet (albeit completely unrealistic) moment. Instead, he gave us another six or seven minutes of drawn-out residual drama in the form of a mock-police standoff, at which point I had had more than enough and just ended the $3.95 rental prematurely. Michael, I still love you for your witty Stella performances and snappy VH1 Countdown Lists commentary, but please, please, please stick to in front of the camera work until your sense of humor hits puberty.
Michael Ian Black write and directs this forgettable piece of romanticcomedy, with an emphasis on the comedy leaving the romance to simmer inthe background, which I liked if only because I can't stand mostRomcoms. In fact if this film wasn't on netflix via xbox 360, Isincerely doubt that I would've given it a chance. As it was and sincemy girl wanted to see it I decided to appease her movie(in)sensibilities.Jason Biggs (American Pie) is Anderson a man who's just given up onlove. His soul-mate has just died via heart attack due to histomfoolery involving dressing up as Cupid and proposing to her.Needless to say he's down in the dumps when he half-heartedly andjokingly asks a waitress to marry him out of the blue. Unfortunately,for him (and the viewer), the waitress Katie (Isla Fisher, who actsjust as nuts here as she did in The Wedding Crashers) says yes. Theythen have to contend with their respective parents (including JoePantoliano in the thankless supremely unfunny role of jailbird dad) But my girl like it (even though I don't really like her taste in film)so it couldn't be all bad *shrugs* My Grade: C-
"Wedding Daze" Written and directed by Ian Michael Black, also released as "The Pleasure of Your Company".Anderson (Jason Biggs) is in what he believes to be a committed relationship to the woman of his dreams. He intends to propose to her dressed as cupid at a fancy restaurant but the proposal goes awry and leaves Anderson's FiancÃ© to be, dead of shock. Anderson is devastated by the loss and left feeling that he will never fall in love again. A year passes and Anderson hasn't gotten out of his slump. Anderson's friend Ted (Michael Weston) suggests that Anderson won't find happiness again unless he tries to find it. At his suggestion Anderson ask the next girl he sees to marry him who happens to be, Katie (Isla Fisher) who is in a relationship with a guy who her mother loves although she isn't so sure she loves him. Her boyfriend had recently proposed over a family game of charades but Katie wasn't sure and said she had to think about it. For some reason she feels Andersons proposal is a good idea even though she has never even met him and agrees to marry him on the spot and comedic hilarity ensues......This has to be some of the worst script writing that has ever made it to film. I really feel bad for Biggs and Isla Fisher because I really like both of them but this cant be a good indicator of things to come.The Good: ?????The Bad: None of the comedic situations in this movie worked. The words Hackneyed and trite come to mind when thinking about them. A lot of the comedic moments felt like poor "American Pie - Unrated (Widescreen Collector's Edition)" rip offs. The end result was a comedy that wasn't funny at all. The overall plot and story are implausible at best and ludicrous at worst which would have been fine if writer/director Michael Black was attempting to take us on a "Dude, Where's My Car??" type ride. It seems like he tried slip seamlessly between that genre and the slightly more realistic situation comedy genre ala "Knocked Up (Unrated Widescreen Edition)" and it just didn't work. This left the movie with a very awkward "Hodge podge" type tone which left you wondering how seriously you were supposed to be taking the characters or subject matter.Overall: If you need to see Biggs in a movie about weddings check out "American Wedding - Unrated (Widescreen Collector's Edition)". If you need to see Isla Fisher in a movie about weddings, check out "Wedding Crashers - Unrated (Widescreen New Line Platinum Series)" but do not waste your time on Wedding Daze.
