'Wedding Crashers': The Side-Splitting Tale of Two Bachelors' Covert Wedding Infiltration

Movie poster for Wedding Crashers

Wedding Crashers (2005) is a riotous American comedy starring Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn as John and Jeremy, lifelong friends who have mastered the art of wedding crashing. Residing in Washington, D.C., the two professional divorce mediators spend their free time infiltrating the weddings of strangers in order to capitalize on the euphoria of love—not to mention the unlimited food and libations on hand.

With unwavering charm and a penchant for audacity, the pair excels in the art of deception—blending seamlessly with wedding guests while weaving intricate cover stories and milking assorted celebrations shamelessly. Yet their merry marauding takes an unexpected turn after they crash the illustrious Cleary family wedding, thrusting themselves into a cavalcade of humorous complications. Amidst the festivities, John becomes smitten with maid of honor Claire (Rachel McAdams) just as Jeremy grapples with the magnetic allure of bridesmaid Gloria (Isla Fisher)—all while they struggle to impress the bride's parents: U.S. Secretary of the Treasury William Cleary (Christopher Walken) and his wife Kathleen (Jane Seymour).

Directed by David Dobkin (The Change-Up), Wedding Crashers is a boisterous comedy that delves headlong into the absurd depths two friends will plumb for pleasure and amusement. Wilson and Vaughn's seamless on-screen chemistry carries the storyline through myriad turns and laugh-out-loud scenarios, culminating in unexpected romantic revelations. Balancing ribald sensibilities with wry sincerity, Dobkin has delivered a comedic gem that unapologetically embraces laughter while exploring the bonds of human connection.
