The Wedding Date (2005)

 SUMMARY (from IMDB): Single-girl anxiety causes Kat Ellis (Messing) to hire a male escort (Mulroney) to pose as her boyfriend at her sister's wedding. Her plan, an attempt to dupe her ex-fiancĂ©, who dumped her a couple years prior, proves to be her undoing.

IRECTOR: Clare Kilner; CAST: Debra Messing, Dermot Mulroney, Jack Davenport…


After a bad and depressing day some time ago this romantic comedy was exactly what I needed to cheer me up.

The Wedding Date follows a predictable, simple plot-line, which is perfect for when you want to rest your mind. There are two strangers who meet on “business” purpose, get to know each other, and gradually fall in love. In the meantime, there are some thoroughly funny situations that made me laugh out loud. Of course, it does not do without one or two misunderstandings, arguments, and a few tears. But it all ends as it should, and they all live happily ever after.

The acting is good and the film is paced just right, not too slow or too fast. There are some very clever lines said. The following statement made me melt: “I’d miss you even if we’d never met.” Now, that is romantic.

Overall, this is a typical nice, light film to help you unwind after a hard day.

RECOMMENDATION: If a girl needs to relax and have a good laugh, this is the film to watch.

  1. This does sound cute! I'll have to look and see if it's on Netflix instant play.


Don't hesitate to drop me a few strange new words! I'd love to hear what you think!
