Ticket Stub: Last night was Ladies Movie Night, and after two depressing dramas in a row, we wanted something light, frothy, dare I say inconsequential. The Wedding Date did and did not meet these criteria. As the abysmal reviews promised, it was disjointed, unfunny, badly paced, a cliched patchwork of other, better romantic comedies. But...it wasn't dumb and grating, as I though it might be, it was just sort of...lost. There were pieces of a much better movie in there: some good dialogue, better premise than I expected, decent acting. But the pieces were so sloppily assembled the story fell apart. Too bad: this could have been another Wedding Singer or Wedding Planner. Extra points off for a deplorable soundtrack of faux-Motown covers. (D)
