Wedding Crashers

Very funny. And, as you might expect with a really successful movie, it was initially rejected by all the major studios!

Creative Screenwriting Review - shows that much of the humour comes from the script, while fully acknowledging the fun that Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson had with improv.

The commentary went into that as well, and it's great to hear a director give the writers credit by name.

I got to admit this film didn't appeal to me originally; I only watched it because I'm writing a romantic comedy. It's a little too raunchy for comfort in some parts, but hey, it's R-rated, so what can I expect?

But they did a fantastic job - taking what could be some really unsympathetic characters, and making us feel really on their side.

Box Office - a very successful picture, with over $200 million at the BO!

IMDb trivia - but you'll find all that stuff out in the commentary - except for the printable purple heart bit.

74% on the Tomatometer.

A good laugh - those guys are very funny.
