The Wedding Date

July 10, 2009

30.   Watch 101 new movies (14/101) (more info)

I got sucked into TBS late last night and watched The Wedding Date (2005). It centers around Kat Ellis (Messing), who returns to her parents’ London home for her sister’s wedding. Afraid of confronting her ex-fiancé, who dumped her two years before, she hires a top-drawer male escort (Mulroney) to pose as her new boyfriend. It was a complete chick flick and I liked it. I will say I fall for the “I’d rather fight with you than make love to anyone else” line probably due to the fact that my husband and I tend to fight like cats and dogs :) I wouldn’t recommend paying to see it, but it’s another good see it on tv movie.

    I read the book this is based on (by Elizabeth Young) before I saw the movie (well, before there ever was a movie). I really enjoyed this adaptation! It isn’t often that I enjoy a movie more than a book, but this was one of those times :)

      Would you recommend reading the book after having seen the movie?

        If you enjoy British chick lit/romance then yes, I don’t think it’d be a total waste. But I’m not much “into” that genre (for reading anyway, I liked the movie) so I don’t think I’ll re-read the book. In fact, I think I bought it at an airport and then donated it to the library, if that tells you anything. If you enjoyed the movie and are looking for a little diversion, it’s not bad.
