Our Score
Having previously worked with both actors separately, Shanghai Knights director David Dobkin thought Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn would be a good match, and in some respects he was right. Paired in this lowbrow comedy as lifelong buddies who spend their free time gate-crashing spring weddings to pick up women, they enjoy an easy chemistry that's difficult to dislike. With Wilson doing his customary laid-back schtick in contrast to Vaughn's more slapstick turn, they play off each other perfectly. There are a few funny moments as their season-end event culminates in a weekend with the US Treasury Secretary (Christopher Walken) and his dysfunctional family, which comes about when Wilson's character falls for the engaged middle daughter (Rachel McAdams). However, the leads can't sustain the humour throughout (particularly when violence rears its ugly head), and they struggle with an overstretched storyline and material that often feels stale and contrived.


Two party-mad bachelors make the most of the romantic atmosphere as they gatecrash weddings to pick up women. With a catalogue of tall stories to tell guests, the pair are regularly the hit of the events they attend - until one of them falls for a bridesmaid and they both learn a few things about love. Comedy, starring Owen Wilson, Vince Vaughn, Christopher Walken, Jane Seymour, Rachel McAdams and Isla Fisher.
