The Wedding Planner [DVD] [2001]

Hilarity rushes to the altar in the Jennifer Lopez/Matthew McConaughey romantic comedy The Wedding Planner. Columbia has done a fine job on this disc, starting off with a very nice 2.35:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer. Imperfections such as digital artifacting and edge enhancement are never present during the feature. With bold black levels and very bright colors, this transfer is very pleasing to the eye. The same might be said for the ears with the Dolby Digital 5.1 soundtrack. While sound effects are not heavily used in The Wedding Planner, this track utilizes the surround feature whenever romantic songs are in the background. Clear and concise, this track should please home theater listeners. Also included on this disc is a Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround soundtrack in English, as well as English, French, and Spanish subtitles. The Wedding Planner could be considered a special edition of sorts, boasting a bouquet of extra features. A commentary track with director Adam Shankman and screenwriters Pamela Falk and Michael Ellis is both insightful and funny. Also included on this disc are some deleted scenes that don't add much to the proceedings, a short "making of" featurette, "The Dancer and the Cowboy" featurette, some theatrical trailers, filmographies, production notes, and web links to The Wedding Planner website. If fans of romantic comedy are in the mood for DVD love, this edition of The Wedding Planner should ignite sparks.

The Wedding Planner
This lighthearted romantic comedy in the tradition of Runaway Bride (1999) casts Jennifer Lopez in the Julia Roberts mold. Lopez stars as Mary Fiore, an ambitious and successful San Francisco wedding planner who works only for the most wealthy and exclusive clients but who is also a perpetual single. Pressured by her father Sal (Alex Rocco) to settle down, Mary is saved from a collision with an out of control dumpster by Steve Edison (Matthew McConaughey), a successful pediatrician. After sharing a romantic evening and a dance together, Mary learns that Eddie is engaged and that she's being hired by his controlling fiancée Fran (Bridgette Wilson-Sampras), an Internet tycoon, to plan their lavish wedding. The directorial debut of former choreographer Adam Shankman, The Wedding Planner costars Kevin Pollak, Judy Greer, and Kathy Najimy. ~ Karl Williams, Rovi
