The Wedding Ringer


Doug Harris is a loveable but socially awkward groom-to-be with a problem: he has no best man. With less than two weeks to go until he marries the girl of his dreams, Doug is referred to Jimmy Callahan, owner and CEO of Best Man, Inc., a company that provides flattering best men for socially challenged guys in need. What ensues is a hilarious wedding charade as they try to pull off the big con, and an unexpected budding bromance between Doug and his fake best man Jimmy.

    Respect is not something viewers will find much of in The Wedding Ringer, nor propriety, nor any of those things that make for respectable family viewing. It’s just a funny, impolite, very not-for-kids romp that goes there.

  • Alan Scherstuhl

    Hart rants, Gad fidgets, and together this pair barrels through the plot, shaping between them a surprisingly potent friendship.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    The Wedding Ringer is imperfect but its imperfections are tolerable because they're accompanied by a dollop of drama, a measure of laughter, and an oversized helping of Kevin Hart.

  • Roger Moore

    There’s not much new here. But a savvy, sassy script, smart casting and genuine “I feel sorry for this white boy” chemistry between Hart and Gad make Wedding Ringer an R-rated bromance that will touch you as often as it tickles you.

    While The Wedding Ringer isn’t the total waste of time that its painful trailer (and January release date) threatens, it’s also a movie whose occasional good ideas are ultimately drowned out by sloppy, contrived screenwriting.

  • Bilge Ebiri

    A mostly disposable, occasionally quite funny bromance distinguished at times by its earnestness.

    Vaguely more tolerable than you might expect – enjoyable, even, in sporadic bursts. Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    The manic energy of Kevin Hart is, surprisingly, toned down in The Wedding Ringer. Which may account for almost the entire first half of this wannabe-raucous buddy movie being laugh-free.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    It's not quite a match made in heaven, but there is considerable comic chemistry between the high-octane Kevin Hart and the energy-conserving Josh Gad. A good thing since theirs is the only relationship worth watching in The Wedding Ringer.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    A well-cast but clumsily assembled buddy-for-hire comedy that increasingly smacks of desperation as it approaches its big-day climax.

    Variety Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    Despite the considerable charisma of Kevin Hart and Josh Gad and a strong supporting cast, The Wedding Ringer has only one or two genuinely inspired bits of comedy, a few dopey moments when you laugh in spite of yourself — and long, long stretches of pointless montages, loud and unfunny physical shtick and far too much reliance on gay “humor."

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Drew Hunt

    This big, brash, occasionally clever, but mostly dumb comedy is so gallingly derivative that watching it feels like playing a game of basic-cable bingo.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Jen Chaney

    What’s truly regrettable about The Wedding Ringer is that, at certain moments, it almost succeeds as a heartfelt comedy about male friendship in which its two stars, Josh Gad and Kevin Hart, get to demonstrate that they can act.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Nicolas Rapold

    Mr. Hart tells wild tales, Mr. Gad is humiliated, and most everyone else gets to dish out or receive abuse. But the laughs are not a sure thing.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Barbara VanDenburgh

    Director and co-writer Jeremy Garelick doesn't even reach high enough to pick the low-hanging fruit, opting instead to gather half-rotted, fly-infested jokes off the ground and expect Kevin Hart to make them funny by virtue of being Kevin Hart. Only grudgingly will I acknowledge that he sometimes does.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Jon Frosch

    A certain derivative, deja-vu quality isn’t the only sin this lazy, numbingly routine, very occasionally amusing comedy commits.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Jason Clark

    The Wedding Ringer is such a crudely edited, slapdash affair it often forgets about the characters it has introduced — especially the women.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    The Wedding Ringer has so many gay jokes that some of them apparently didn’t even make the final cut.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Sara Stewart

    The Wedding Ringer is not so much a rom-com as an anatomy lesson. And the lesson is this: Men have balls. They must have them, or grow them, otherwise they are not men. They are little girls.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Nathan Rabin

    The film’s lazy reliance on distraction extends to keeping its female lead underwritten and unsympathetic.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Kiva Reardon

    This so-called comedy unfolds with embarrassing desperation and mind-numbing vulgarity.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    If we can’t believe these characters could really be friends, we can live for 101 minutes in a world where they do.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    An affably crude bromantic comedy with an appealing set of bros.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Louis Black

    The film is so flat and tired it really doesn’t deserve the vehemence of this review. It’s like chastising a completely airless tire for not rolling.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Ken McIntyre

    The predictable script lulls you into laughing at some very tired gags, but at least Hart refrains from screaming through the whole thing.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Tom Huddleston

    The plot’s old, the title’s borrowed and the jokes are blue – but there’s nothing remotely new in this wearying bromantic comedy.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • Rupert Hawksley

    The Wedding Ringer is offensive, insincere and far, far too long. Oh, and there is not a single funny moment. In short, it has all the charm of a catastrophic best man’s speech.
