Wedding Crashers (2005, USA) C-119m. SCOPE ** D: David Dobkin. Starring Owen Wilson, Vince Vaughn, Christopher Walken, Rachel McAdams, Isla Fisher, Jane Seymour, Henry Gibson, Dwight Yoakam, Rebecca De Mornay, Chao-Li Chi. Superficial but amusing comedy about Wilson and Vaughn, two wedding crashers, who like enjoying themselves at weddings they are not invited to, aiming mainly at one-night-stands. Things get complicated when Wilson falls in love with the daughter of Treasury Secretary Walken, and Vaughn must pretend he's in love with her sister. Another totally artificial Hollywood comedy, never rings true one second, but the laughs are there, resulting in a movie that's phony but funny.
