A gal who needs a date for a family function gets the best man money can buy in this romantic comedy. Kat Ellis (Debra Messing) is a woman in her mid-thirties living in New York City and has had more than her share of romantic problems -- enough so that she's gotten word that her younger half-sister Amy (Amy Adams) is getting married, and that her mother Bunny (Holland Taylor) and father Victor (Peter Egan) want to fix her up with someone so she won't look alone and miserable for the big day. Adding insult to injury, Kat learns that the best man at the ceremony will be Jeffrey (Jeremy Sheffield), a former boyfriend who cruelly dumped her without warning two years before. Determined not to show up alone, Kat swallows her pride and hires Nick Mercer (Dermot Mulroney), a professional escort, who will pose as her boyfriend for a $6,000 fee. Kat and Nick fly to England for the wedding, and her family and friends are all struck by how charming, handsome, and personable Nick is -- and Kat begins wondering if their relationship has to be all business; however, as it turns out, Nick understands Kat far better than she expects. The Wedding Date was based on the novel Asking for Trouble by British author Elizabeth Young.~Mark Deming
This movie is hilarious. The story may be predictable but not every movie has to be meaningful. It just nice to be entertained. The. HD picture is good considering the age of the movie. The sound is actually DTS HD surround not Dolby digital 5.1 like the case says. I would recommend to a friend.
Two of my favorites Debra Messing and Dermot Mulroney. I absolutely loved this movie. Of course men might consider it a chick flick. When I recommended it to a male friend I didn't tell him about it. He called me later and said I hate you(in a good way) it was fabulous. He also was constantly talking about the great soundtrack it had. Would recommend this to everyone.

One of my favorite romcoms!
I can't believe that this movie is already 13 years old! I am glad to own it on Blu-ray. As usual with these older movies with the universal label the picture isn't up to par but it looks good enough! For some reason there is no menu on the disc.
