Larry Miller is quite funny (but predictable) as the minister next door and Brolin is a surprising find as the father in law.

As such, the film could be summarized as mildly entertaining cinematic fluff.

I enjoyed it very much.

A yawn inducing movie .

An Average Flick, Yet Entertaining .

This was a pretty entertaining movie.

I wouldn't waste your time watching this.

The plot moves along rather weakly, owing to contrived coincidences and to Paul's far-fetched lies.

Seriously, at least half of them on here are ones saying it is "the worst movie" or some nonsense like that.

I'm not trying to say that if you enjoyed this movie, you are a bad person, as everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and parts of this movie were enjoyable, I'm just saying that in real life, people acting like the characters in this film were doing is shameful.

Overall this is a very silly film, based on one daft scene after another that leads to a predictable ending that simply doesn't make sense even using the logic of this type of film.

I like my romcoms, but this was so predictable and boring.

It was both entertaining and funny.

If you did end up watching this movie out of curiosity, interest or boredom then you will find this and uplifting comedy.

Romantic comedies are getting so predictable nowadays that it feels like the genre itself is ready to be flushed down the toilet, so it's always to see a good one among all these bad apples.

It's a little more sluggish and drags a little slowly for such an exciting premise, and i think i'm seeing from the comments people having a love/hate relationship with this movie.

Julie Hagerty also has a small part, and she's always enjoyable to watch, which makes me wish she received better roles.

It was very unoriginal, the comedy was dry, and the action was boring.

This films flat out sucks, there's no way around it, don't waste your time.

I went to the movie theatre not knowing what to watch and just spontaneously picked the film, "A Guy Thing", which turned out to be quite entertaining.

The movie itself, despite a bit of slowness and a few jokes that don't come off as funny as the writer's intended, is still pretty funny and I found a rather intelligent film.

I hate it, and it always comes across as pretentious and stupid.

Watch It On The Boring Weekend .

, in fact she was totally uninteresting.

The Jim character, for example, is your typical college-aged frat rat; he mutters dialogue that is mostly banal, like: "Paul, listen to me ...

The jokes were a good mix, some very subtle moments, and some other more obvious laughs, but in all it was entertaining the entire time.

Most of the time when these kinds of actors/actresses get together to make a film that have already been made a million times before, it's really entertaining.

Though the story is very unoriginal and what you called very predictable movie.

Selma Blair looks stunning.

Dreadful, predictable and boring .

I'm not saying this is the best movie ever invented, but it was definitely a fun, cute, funny and entertaining movie that I would recommend to anyone in need of an hour and forty minutes of entertainment.

Predictable, predictable, predictable.

See something else, don't waste your time here.

However, this movie is quite fun and entertaining.

The movie's momentum wanes in the final act, marked by stale, stilted dialogue, and a plot device - that is drawn out far too long – that culminates in the shamelessly hijacked wedding sequence at the end of the film.

The first two thirds of the film play well: the characters are engaging, the pacing is even and there are many funny scenes (the scene that inspired the title is hilarious).

don't be fooled by bad reviews, this movie is fun, silly, and entertaining .

This was one of the most boring movies I've ever seen… I don't really know why… Just your run-of-the-mill stories about guy who is about to get married, and starts to fancy someone else instead.

I expected something predictable and I didn't mind.

Even if the ceremony goes perfectly, there's always a 50/50 chance that you could become one of the jaded statistics that is dragged through a soul shattering divorce and doomed to join the ranks of the permanently emotionally scarred.

However it is funny and a great performance by Jason Lee makes it more enjoyable than it probably should be.

Then, you'll see one that's realistic, but it might be too dull to keep you interested.

But in this movie, not only does she look as beautiful as I've ever seen her, she is pure and entertaining.

enjoyable movie with refreshing humour .

Mildly Entertaining Fluff .

It is not challenging, it is not hysterical, it is a fairly standard comedy but still enjoyable enough to be worth watching.

Sometimes the story of a movie is so predictable only a one or two things can save a that movie.

Paul is getting married and we meet up with him on his bachelor party where he's quite bored and in love with his future wife.

I had really only seen her be serious, or typical teen cliché in things I'd seen.

I had hoped this movie was going to be mildly entertaining, like other sorts of its genre.

Save your money.

Paul, a normal man engaged with Karen, gets an unexpected hangover after his bachelor party and ends up in bed with a girl whom he doesn't remember.

The 'jokes' - and BELIEVE me, it takes a LOT out of me to call them that - are stupid, the characters are trite and forgettable, the storyline is entirely predictable...

It was one of the most droned-out and predictable pieces of cinematography I have ever witnessed...

Trivial but entertaining .

This movie, with its common and so many times used plot, although it had potential, manages to be a yawn-making and head-scratching machine.

Julia Stiles could be faulted for staying with her usual fascinating, stoic on screen persona instead of taking this opportunity of trying something different.

As repeated often throughout the comments, it was predictable; five minutes into the movie you know it will be a stranded at the alter outcome.

But what is really gonna rock his world is when he finds out that she is Karen's very close cousin and that she's attending the wedding…Check out my review site Rabbit-Reviews for movies that are worth watching, Rabbit out...

The worst movie I've seen in a long time .

The undertone of the move is to live life on the edge I guess.

One of the worst movies I have seen in my life.

I will watch anything with Jason Lee, and because of that i saw this funny, entertaining movie.

Watch it on HBO, maybe, or if you've got a free rental to waste and you need a movie to pass the time.

Three words come to mind during this movie: Predictable, predictable, predictable.

Boring, predictable, and dry.

Silly and weakly plotted but reasonably funny and made more enjoyable by Lee's performance .


The plot is simply daft – one contrived set piece after another that is increasingly stretched as the film goes on.

On the other hand you might just find that watching it was a waste of time.
