THE WEDDING RINGER: Melbourne Central Movie Club review

Blogged by: Melbourne Central 22 Jan 2015 View comments
Jimmy Callahan (Kevin Hart) is man’s best friend. He’s good for a laugh, supportive when you need him to be, talented at throwing massive parties, and can turn on the charm to impress your folks. But his friendship comes at a price.

As Doug’s (Josh Gad) wedding grows closer, he becomes more and more desperate to fill out his wedding party with a troupe of male BFFs. The problem is, Doug is a nervous, awkward guy who moved around a lot while he was growing up and, as a result, has a severe lack of friends. Realising he has nobody to stand behind him at the altar on the big day, Doug’s wedding planner sends him to Best Man Inc., where he meets Jimmy, the best Best Man a man could ask for!



What follows is a mad scramble to flesh out Doug’s wedding party, suck up to his future in-laws and throw the ultimate bachelor party in time for Jimmy to pull off the ultimate coup: a “Golden Tuxedo”, the most grand and complicated job for any professional Best Man. Along the way, Jimmy reluctantly grows close to Doug, and as their friendship forms Jimmy starts to question just what he gets out of being everyone’s Best Man, but nobody’s best friend.

‘The Wedding Ringer’ takes any outrageous prank and really amps it up. Just when you think these guys have reached their peak, they embark on a muddy football match, try to out-run the police in a van driven by an octogenarian, or set someone on fire. Woven throughout is a story of two friendless guys who find something in one another that they didn’t know they were looking for.



‘The Wedding Ringer’ is released at HOYTS Melbourne Central  from Thursday, 22 January, 2015. To score your own free tickets to future screenings, join the Melbourne Central Movie Club on Facebook and you’ll be updated when a new event is taking place!
