Wedding Wars ★★½ 2006

When Shel learns that Ben's boss, Governor Welling (Brolin), opposes gay marriage, he picks up a picket sign and goes on strike. Soon, gays across the country are leaving their jobs to join in Shel's protest, and the wedding, which has been turned over to the tacky Mrs. Fairfield (Kash), is a disaster waiting to happen. 87m/C DVD .
