Wedding Crashers Theatrical Review
In 2005's hit comedy "Wedding Crashers" Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson seek to educate us in the fine art of the 115 rules of getting in, getting out, and doing it all over again at next weekend's nuptials to which they have no invitation.
The film opens with John (Owner Wilson) and Jeremy (Vince Vaughn) consulting a couple going through a divorce. In typical Vaughn fashion, his fast talking, slick tongued rants for which he has become famous leads the couple to amicably part ways. It is this introduction to the characters that sets the tone for the rest of the film.
John and Jeremy are Wedding Crashes who, during "wedding season" (their equivalent to the armchair quarterbacks football season) show up at weddings they are uninvited to and make up a story about who they are:
(Jeremy Grey: Okay, what's our back story?
John Beckwith: We're brothers from New Hampshire. We're venture capitalists.
Jeremy Grey: I'm sick of that. Let's be from Vermont. And let's have an emerging maple syrup conglomerate.)
The rest of the movie centers on the two trying to live out lies they have created at the wedding party and establishing relationships between the two couples. John and Claire's a somewhat melodramatic romantic story rife with conflict (Claire gets engaged to her longtime boyfriend over the weekend) while Jeremy and Gloria's is a hilarious game of sexual cat and mouse - but who's the cat and who's the mouse?
