Alyson Hannigan - "Date Movie" - Catholicherald.com Review

Wednesday 5 April 2006, by Webmaster

Date Movie

Crudely sophomoric sendup of recent popular romantic comedies barely held together by a perfunctory plot involving the upcoming wedding of a formerly obese waitress (Alyson Hannigan) to the man of her dreams (Adam Campbell), a wedding that the latter’s seductive ex-flame (Sophie Monk) threatens to sabotage.

Following in the genre-skewering footprints of "Scary Movie," directors Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer spoof such films as "My Big Fat Greek Wedding," "Hitch" and "My Best Friend’s Wedding," among others, in a nonstop barrage of vulgar and unfunny juvenile sight gags that test the limits of its PG-13 rating.

Pervasive raunchy and gross-out humor, some comic violence, recurring crude language and a few instances of profanity. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is O — morally offensive.

The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 — parents strongly cautioned.

Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
