Movie Review: The Wedding Ringer (2015)

I saw this movie a week ago actually and feel so little about it that I actually considered not reviewing it. But I want the site traffic so here ya go.

The acting was okay but I feel like the main two character had to act down to their scripted roles. This could have been a movie with a meaning. They alluded to that potential a few times when Kevin Hart questioned his choices to be a friend for pay but a true friend to nobody. It could have been a comedy with depth. Unfortunately, that potential wasn’t realized because they were too busy making awful jokes about bestiality.

There were a few good moments. There were many funny moments. But there were also a few moments that ruined the movie for me. They crossed some lines that didn’t add quality to the movie and could have been left out without there being any box office repercussions. It isn’t funny enough for me to share the movie with others.

The acting was good enough to get the job done. It felt like nobody went out of their way to add magic to their character. With some roles the script even called for quantity over quality.

The script was bland. Nobody put in effort to add layers. There wasn’t anything in the discourse that stayed with me after I left my seat. It didn’t have weight and it didn’t have a strong approach on an angle worth exploring. I spent more time thinking about what to write about this movie than I did about anything the movie brought up. I actually would have been better off not seeing this movie.

Verdict: You can skip this one. If you wanted to see it for the actors then stay away because they don’t do themselves proud. If you wanted to see it because you wanted to see a comedy go see Kingsman or even Seventh Son because they are just as funny.

Social Cues: If for some reason you go to see this do not see it in mixed company.
