License To Wed is a romantic comedy that stars Robin Williams, Mandy Moore, and Jon Krasinski.
In this movie a newly engaged couple wants to get married in Father Frank's (Williams) church, except the only opening is in the next two years is in three weeks. On top of throwing a wedding together in just 21 days, the couple must also successfully complete Father Frank's wacky pre-marriage counseling course. This couple is in for a wild ride throughout this unconventional, unorthodox course that will put them through the ringer as it tests their love and faith in each other with several off-the-wall tasks and exercises. Can this couple's love survive Father Frank's course in tact?
The hi-lights of this movie include Krasinski's role as the fed up groom and Williams' unlikely antics as the clergyman. The groom's pal, Joel, is also amusing... what is not so amusing is Mandy Moore's acting in this movie. It's often grating and annoying and sappy and cliched. I've seen her in other roles and have not been annoyed. She's comes off as unnatural in this romantic comedy. I think the biggest problem for the movie is the script; the dialogue is often unrealistic, strained and cliched, while some subplots and characters remain undeveloped.
This movie is available upon request from Annville Free Library and Richland Community Library.
