What are the Best Guy Wedding Movies?
I don’t know about all you guys out there, but I loved Bride Wars! The movie had it all – laughs, tears, and love! An instant classic. I can honestly say that I’ll be lining up to buy it on the day it hits Blu-ray…….
Sorry, my wife was standing over my shoulder making me type that. She’s gone now. Yes, she made me go see Bride Wars. It was her turn to pick, there was nothing I could do about it. The movie actually did have it’s high points (Anne Hathaway and Kate Hudson), but as a whole it wasn’t much for a guy to get excited about. As I sat there watching Liv and Emma battle for wedding supremacy , I got to thinking – why aren’t there more wedding movies geared towards men? In fact, I could only think of a few that would even be acceptable for a man to watch:
Wedding Crashers: I defy you to find a guy that didn’t enjoy this movie. If someone says they didn’t, they’re lying. It’s right up there with Old School and Anchorman in terms of re-watchability. Sidenote: crashing a wedding isno’ as easy as it appears to be in the movie. Found that one out the hard way.
American Wedding: Sure, the American Pie series had overstayed it’s welcome by the time this one came around. But, that opening scene at the restaurant is always good for a few laughs. Plus, there are some valuable lessons to be learned from this film…particularly if you have a friend like Stifler – don’t let him be in charge of keeping the wedding bands safe.
The Groomsmen: Edward Burns gives a solid performance. The issues in this film are ones that most men can probably relate to. It’s definitely a dialogue driven movie, but worth checking out if you haven’t seen it.
Bride of Chucky: Chucky is a misunderstood villain. All he ever wanted was to find love. Bride of Chucky is the story of the search for that love. This heartfelt tale should make for a romantic evening for two.
