Wedding Movies: Top 5 to say, ‘I do’
The new movie “Bridesmaids” is generating a lot of buzz. The wedding comedy made an impressive debut this weekend coming in at number two with $24.4 million. I suppose this is the best time of the year for wedding movies, being this is the season for all those imminent nuptials to say “I do.” So, here are my top five wedding movies. Check out the clips and trailers below.
The Wedding Singer
This movie has it all..laughs, clever one-liners, cheesy 80s music and fashion flubs, and of course Adam Sandler. But when Sandler’s character gets jilted at the altar, he snaps. This clip has to be one of, if not, the funniest scenes in the movie.
My Best Friend’s Wedding
When Julia Roberts’ character realized she was in love with her best friend, I admit, I was cheering her on. But in the end, it was only fitting that she would lose. There must be something about weddings that make people break out in song and make fools of themselves. Check out this clip.
My Big Fat Greek Wedding
When I was young, my father always said, “I don’t care who you marry, as long as he is Italian.” So I married a German. I can relate a tad to Toula and her Greek family. But, you can’t get more ethnic than “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” on the silver screen or in real life.
Father of the Bride
You gotta love Steve Martin. I never get tired of his comedic delivery or tear-jerking scenes in this movie. The thought of his only daughter getting married drives him crazy, but he eventually comes to terms with wedding..and the cost…$250 a head. The hot dog scene is classic.
Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway star as two best friends who are both engaged. But their friendship becomes a rivalry when they plan their weddings on the same day at The Plaza. “Bride Wars” gives the term, bridezilla, a whole new meaning.
