2005
Rating:
PG-13
The Wedding Date is a 2005 romantic comedy directed by Clare Kilner and based on the novel Asking for Trouble by British author Elizabeth Young. Kate Ellis (Debra Messing) is a thirtyish, single New Yorker returning home to play maid of honor at her sister Amy's (Amy Adams) wedding. Her ex-boyfriend, Jeffrey (Jeremy Sheffield), who cruelly broke her heart two years ago, will be the best man. Her parents, Bunny (Holland Taylor) and Victor (Peter Egan), are concerned she will be dateless for the wedding. On a whim, Kate decides to hire a male escort to pose as her new boyfriend. Having a boyfriend on her arm would keep her parents off her back about her pathetic love life. Most importantly, it would allow her to save face in front of Jeffrey. Nick Mercer (Dermot Mulroney) is perfect for the job. He's suave, handsome, sexy and intelligent. As she gets to know Nick, she realizes he is perfect for her in every way, but she panics when he returns her affections. He's convinced her family they are in love. Can he convince Kate to love him, too?moreless

    The New York Times

    Struggles from beginning to end to capture the charm and ebullience of "Four Weddings." The new movie's effort is mostly unsuccessful, but there are bright spots.

    Variety

    An intriguingly racy premise -- plays out to listless, unsatisfying effect.

    Los Angeles Times Carina Chocano

    Winds up an oddly depressing, lost, little movie that eventually caves in on itself.
