MOVIE REVIEW: THE WEDDING RINGER


This is a show for the foreveralone, Doug Harris (Josh Gad) will be marrying the lady of his dreams, Gretchen Palmer (Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting). 2 weeks before his marriage, he has no best man or friends. So he hired Jimmy Callahan (Kevin Hart) CEO of Best Man Inc, a company which provides flattering best man for socially challenged guys in need. 

THE GOOD

The show is for the light hearted, lots of humours and also much bromance moments. The storyline sync perfectly with the havoc that is created by Kevin Hart and Josh Gad. These two clowns seems like they have been friend even before the show started filming. You can see lots of bromance and natural moments as we progress through the show. Kevin Hart single handedly carried the movie as his characteristic is simply natural for the movie. 

THE BAD

Like every other romance comedy, the end are much predictable. Besides that, they are some loopholes in the movie especially with Kevin Hart disguising to the be their best friend without getting caught was somehow questionable. The grandma who got burned and live through it with lots of make up sometimes make this movie cheaper than it seems. Suddenly, it feels like a parody of another movie. Besides that, I am somehow disappointed with the acting of Kaley Cuoco in here, feels less natural together with Josh Gad. 

CONCLUSION

If you are looking for something to watch in the cinemas, I will highly recommend this instead of TRACERS or Vice. If you are willing to wait just a little bit more, maybe something like Jupiter Ascending or Kingsman: The Secret Service is worth waiting this month. 

TL;DR: Bromance, racist jokes, a wedding to crash.
