License to Wed ★ 2007 (PG-13)

Nothing redeems this dull, obnoxious comedy that mostly serves as a vehicle for Williams to do the same ad-libbed characters he's been doing for years. Newly engaged couple Ben and Sadie (Krasinski and Moore) must undergo Rev. Frank's (Williams) premarital counseling, but what they get is an endless series of laughfree, sadismlite tests of endurance. Nothing, from Ben and Sadie's cliche personality mismatch, to Frank's junior sadist sidekick Choir Boy (Flitter), saves this movie from being a big “I don't” for all involved. 91m/C DVD, Blu-ray Disc, HD DVD . US Robin Williams, Mandy Moore, John Krasinski, Eric Christian Olsen, Christine Taylor, Peter Strauss, Rachael Harris, DeRay Davis, Angela Kinsey, Mindy Kaling, Brian Baumgartner, Josh Flitter; D: Ken Kwapis; W: Kim Barker, Tim Rasmussen, Vince DeMeglio; C: John Bailey; M: Christophe Beck.
