Storyline

Sadie and Ben are in love, and although Ben suggests getting married in the Caribbean, Sadie has her heart set on a wedding at the family church, St. Augustine's. Ben says sure, and they meet with the pastor, Rev. Frank. The only date open for two years is three weeks away, and Frank insists the kids go through his marriage prep course. They're to write their own vows; he also demands chastity, bugs their apartment, initiates arguments, has them care for robot twins, creates friction between Ben and her family, and raises doubts in Sadie. Desperate, Ben looks for dirt on Frank. Can he undermine Frank's authority and keep Sadie's heart? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Goofs

When the choir boy is sent to bug the bedroom, he picks the the lock on the door. However, the deadbolt lock can clearly be seen as he picks a lock below it. When the door is opened, we see that there is no other lock below the deadbolt, so he was picking a doorknob. He would have needed to pick the deadbolt lock, not the doorknob, to open the door.

Decent rom com
14 February 2016 | by davispittmanSee all my reviews

License to Wed is a pretty good romantic comedy. I loved Mandy Moore and John Krasinski as the leads. And of course the late Robin Williams was great in his role as reverend Frank. I do love the comedy in this film, Robin Williams really does make this movie! I like how the script was written, it was comedic, romantic, and very sweet, it had moments of true heart, that was very refreshing to see. The characters in this movie do have good chemistry. No it's not the most original in the history of movies, but yes it is funny and kinda amusing. I'm not sure what the deal was with people from the office being in this movie, but like so many actors on the office appeared in here. But overall, this film was entertaining and warm hearted, no it was not perfect, yes, some scenes did drag a little, but all in all, it was a good time. 7/10.
