LIFE’S A PARTY. CRASH IT.
Divorce mediators John Beckwith and Jeremy Klein (Owen Wilson, Vince Vaughn) spend their summer crashing weddings as a means of getting laid; trouble arises when John falls in love with one of his targets. Here’s a comedy that goes on too long, becomes too formulaic and doesn’t know what to do with a phenomenal actor like Christopher Walken, but nevertheless delivers the goods because of the excellent performances by best buddies Wilson and Vaughn. The jokes are often pretty poor, but the stars make everything work and the movie’s often good-natured fun (except for the homophobia).
