The Wedding Crashers – A Movie Review

Loved Vince Vaughn in Swingers.  Not so crazy about Vince Vaughn in The Lost World.  Loved Vince Vaughn in Old School.  Not so crazy about Vince Vaughn in Dodgeball.  Loved Vince Vaughn in Clay Pigeons.  Not so crazy about Vince Vaughn in Made.

Loved Owen Wilson in Zoolander.  Loved Owen Wilson in The Royal Tenenbaums.  Loved Owen Wilson in Meet the Parents.  Loved Owen Wilson in Starsky & Hutch.  I even loved Owen Wilson in I-Spy. (And for a certain someone, I’m sure I’d love Owen Wilson in Bottle Rocket if I ever managed to see it the whole way through…You know who you are.)

So, I guess the point is, I always love Owen Wilson; Vince Vaughn is sometimes hit or miss with me.

Put the two in a film together (starring opposite, not just guest appearances), and I’ve got to give the edge to Owen Wilson. 

Not so with The Wedding Crashers, my friend.  Not so…

Vince Vaughn stole the show, and that’s hard for me to admit. 

The Wedding Crashers is pretty much what you’d expect, and that’s okay with me.  I went to The Wedding Crashers wanting laughs, and that’s what I got.  It was a bit cruder than I was expecting, and hey, that’s okay with me also.  Anyone that really knows me knows that I don’t mind a bit of crude humor every once in a while. 

Wilson was hilarious, but the true star of this film was Vaughn.  Fast-talking, great physical comedy, took me back to his Swingers days.  If you want to laugh, check this film out.  Be mindful, however, it’s rated R for good reason.  Lots of F-bombs, brief flashes of nudity, and lots of sexual humor. 

But, it was funny.
