The Wedding Date (2005)
USA / English
"Love doesn't come cheap.
"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-fiancé, who dumped her a couple years prior, proves to be her undoing.
Debra and Dermot shine in a less than perfect but lighthearted film
Kat (Debra Messing), an airline executive, fears going alone to her
snooty sister's wedding in London. This is especially so because her
ex-fiancé will be there as well. Though young and beautiful, Kat
nevertheless plunks down a cool $6,000 for a professional escort. In
return, the gorgeous Nick (Dermot Mulroney) must play the role of her
new and attentive boyfriend. Kat's sister, Amy, a la Monsoon Wedding,
has planned her wedding extravaganza to last four days, complete with
picnics, cricket, splashy parties and more. Can Kat and Nick pull it
off? Do they have enough natural attraction for each other? And what
about past loves? Messing and Mulroney make this film work, period. The
script has some weaknesses and letdowns, but the darling duo rises
above them. The nice scenery and costumes are also a bonus. There is a
moment when Kat tells Nick he is worth every penny. The same could be
said of the ticket price, as watching Debra and Dermot is very
satisfying. Sometimes, the world just needs a silly love movie. What's
wrong with that? I'd like to know.
