The Wedding CrashersSwingers is one of my all-time favorite movies. I can practically perform the entire movie myself, I've seen it so many times. Vince Vaughn is one of those guys you'd watch in anything. Even if the movie is bad, he's probably still pretty good in it. The Wedding Crashers has a funny premise: two single guys who crash weddings trying to find women. Weddings are something we all understand and put up with, so it's really ripe for a clever comedy.

But the trailer is...unconvincing. Why do the trailers of comedy movies always push the obvious, more broad jokes? I know, to get attention and laughs. But you can't tell what this flick is going to be like: another dumb comedy or a well-written romp. It's Vaughn and Owen Wilson (you knew that was coming; these movies are either Vaughn and Stiller or Stiller and Wilson or some combo) with all these women, trying to score by dancing with little girls at the receptions and pretending to cry. But one woman takes everything too seriously and falls in love with Vaughn, leading to wacky hijinks. I'd love to think this is going to be really funny, but it's all in the writing, of course. Christopher Walken could liven things up. Funny line from Vaughn: "Tattoo on her lower back. Might as well be a bullseye."
