Hello and Welcome Reviewers!
Today I’m reviewing The Wedding Ringer.
Two weeks shy of his wedding, a socially awkward guy enters into a charade by hiring the owner of a company that provides best men for grooms in need.**
The Wedding Ringer is a quite funny movie that uses the chemistry between Josh Gad and Kevin Hart in the right way. You’re guaranteed to have a few laughs while watching this movie. It’s hard to bring out a rated-R comedy into the industry and make money nowadays but this one should go the distance.
I give this movie a 8.1 out of 10.
Check out down below for a spoiler review on The Wedding Ringer. You’ve been warned.
** Warning, Possible Spoilers!!!! **
- The chemistry between Kevin Hart and Josh Gad is great. The best thing about the movie, hands down. They play off of each other nicely and bring out some hilarious scenes. When one person set up a funny joke the other person would slam it in. Hart and Gad was a dynamic duo with a mission.
- Kevin Hart actually showed some level of acting in this movie. We all know him for being Mr. Funny-Man but in this movie he brings a decent dramatic scene to the mix. It’s refreshing to see him begin to show more levels to his characters. Maybe one day you might see him in a role where he’s not just the funny guy.
This movie had everything going for it then they decide to end it off on a cliche note. You would think the Joker, I mean Doug Harris, was talking with Jimmy Callahan and said “And tonight you’re gonna break your one rule.” The main rule of Jimmy was broken after finding the “right” friend.
Bic Mitchum’s background was a ball of confusion. No guy is thinking about random stuff to put together about a fake best friend. It felt like Doug really just started adding various different things from other stories and forgetting his lies about it. This continued to become present when dealing with the stories for the best men.
Gretchen decides to have a very private conversation in a very public area. If you’re going to confess to the “priest” you normally pull him into a room and breakdown. When you’re in the public everyone can hear and that leads Doug to find out the true intentions of his bride to be.
It would be a different movie if they used the R-rating to their advantage. They could have moved a few things around to get a bigger crowd reaction. The balls scene with Rambis should have included a quick view of it. Things like that would have been funny and semi-disgusting.
