Countdown to Matrimony: Wedding Movie #24

Posted on: January 10, 2011

The Groomsmen: I have a vague recollection of seeing this and hating it. Saw it again and still think it’s dreadful. She’s The One is adorable but I’ve given up on Edward Burns as a screenwriter. So many of Burns’s archetypes: the screwup, the loving father/husband, the straight man (Burns), the long-suffering spouse who puts up with the infantile husband…and someone named Pauly. I felt sad watching sweet Brittany Murphy (playing the long-suffering pregnant bride). Edward Burns is so much more effective as an actor where someone else can control his pacing. I’d say, give him an action movie. Skip the sensitive psyche-exploration-and-let’s-visit-the-old-neighborhood roles.
