License to Wed

A minister forces a couple to complete a series of tests before they marry.

Let's all take a moment to remember Robin Williams' comedy career, said Stephen Whitty in the Newark, N.J., Star-Ledger. If you're old enough to buy liquor, you may recall a time when Williams was a respected comedian and an asset to the movies. 'œFor a long time, a long time ago, Williams was one of the best did-he-just-say-that comics in the business. Maybe the best.' But now he's an embarrassment'”the unfunny star of such comedy trash as RV, Man of the Year, and now License to Wed. Williams plays Rev. Frank, a creepy minister who forces a couple to go through marital boot camp before he will agree to perform their ceremony. 'œLicense to Wed isn't as unbearable as its trailers make it look,' said Connie Ogle in The Miami Herald. But it still might be the worst movie of the year. The unfortunate actors cast as the engaged couple, John Krasinski and Mandy Moore, endure a series of contrived compatibility tests, including caring for a pair of barf-spewing robotic infants. The plot is inane, but the subtext is much worse, said Michael Phillips in the Chicago Tribune. Rev. Frank is a sick man, delving into the couple's sex life and enlisting his preteen sidekick to listen in on their foreplay. 'œI'm still not laughing.'

Rating: PG-13
