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…….

Bride Wars? Loved it.

Bride Wars? Loved it.

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.

    Wedding Crashers is an all-time classic. Totally agree with you on that one.

    Three others I would throw into the mix are:

    1) Fandago (’85). Classic roadtrip movie, starring a young Kevin Costner, about a bunch of buddies trying to get themselves to a wedding.

    2) The Best Man (’99). Taye Diggs and Terrence Howard give great, funny performances.

    3) You, Me and Dupree (’06). It’s not entirely wedding related. But the running joke about Owen Wilson wanting an insignia on his tux shirt because he’s the best man, is hilarious.
