KILLER MOVIE REVIEWS BY THE BITCHIN’ ONESIE BRIGADE

The Wedding Ringer- You Put The Weed In The Coconut And You Light That Shit Up

We gon done had the best first movie experience of the year ever! I believe that it is safe to say that both Withoutherspoon and myself are fans of Kevin Hart, I mean, the guy is jacked, properly funny, works extremely hard, and is just an all round MVP! The Wedding Ringer combines all my favourite things about comedies of this sort, laughter each and every minute, adventure, bromance, senseless misfortune and a degree of unlikely scenarios that could almost be beyond comprehension.

Okay so this socially awkward nerd lands the babe of his dreams; super attractive, completely adorable, she just ticks all the boxes, and evidently very popular, as it goes. So as soon as Josh Gad and Kalee Cuocoo-Sweeting start planning their wedding there are some complications, things that the poor guy doesn’t exactly want his soon to be wife to find out, namely that he doesn’t have any friends to serve as groomsmen or his best man. He soon comes into contact with Kevin Hart whom agrees to pull off a Golden Tux(to find 7 groomsmen and serve as his best man), which, I must say, they did a solid job of making it sound pretty damn near impossible. Hilarity ensues when the most unlikely group of people are assembled to serve as groomsmen, when they find out that even weirder backstories were fabricated for them by the groom, and all the misadventures along the way.

Summary of the plot settled and done, this is not a romcom. This is a proper boys own adventure, bromance, a roadtrip story without the roadtrip. It is almost too much to handle, people were fucking applauding and laughing their balls off in the cinema. At one point I kinda thought that Wihtoutherspoon would piss himself and that I might suffocate from not being able to catch my breath. The shenanigans these okes get up to might be highly unlikely, or even impossible, but it really is allot of fun. You know that one Sunday afternoon, not too long ago, that you spent with that one friend, where everything was just amazing and funny and brilliant, there were no downers whatsoever and you were laughing constantly, that day that you still think of every now and then and smile to yourself like a retard, THAT’S how we experienced The Wedding Ringer.

So although we have found most of his work enjoyable, this has to be his best performance yet. Kevin Hart is funny as hell, even though some of his lines were hard to make out when he does that fast talking nervous thing of his, he nails punch lines and timing like few other in the industry can! Not only was, as is, his comedy always magic, but the scenes where he was a bit sentimental and vulnerable were seriously fucking majestic! Goodness, this guy can make you love him for be completely undependable douche nugget friend the one minute, and love him for being the sincere and lovable best bro the next. Not to mention that he is actually pretty ripped, he might be like 3 foot nothing(citation needed), but jacked, man!

Josh Gad was his normal, awkward, self. You really do feel sorry for him for his lack of social skills, and for gods sake, his lack of coordination. I seriously need to find out how some of those stunts were done, that guy might either have some of the worst skull fractures ever, or they had countless broken helmets by the end of shooting. Anyway, hilarious, well done JOSH bro!! Kalee Cuocoo-Sweeting is fine, there is no denying that, and although I was surprised by her lack of screen time I was also a bit relieved by it. She kinda disappointed every time she had a scene, but then who would seriously complain about looking into those eyes for even the smallest amount of time? The real stars of this film really was Kevin Hart and Josh Gad, but a special mention needs Olivia Thrilby, that girl is a special kind of special and a flippin gem, man!

On an epic scale I would give this film a 14 out of 15, seriously, it was that enjoyable! Everyone in the cinema had just a good of a time as we had, I mentioned the applauding earlier in this post, I don’t believe anyone came out of there unsatisfied with the outcome. Because it is Valentines Day this weekend I am just going to assume that everybody already have plans, but just in case you don’t, really do go and check out this film! If you’re depressed and lonely it will make you forget about all your troubles, if you would just like a good time it will make sure of that, and if you’re looking for a good laugh this film will deliver in droves!!
