This movie isn't horrible, but probably would have been significantly better had there been a different leading man cast. John Krasinski was obviously acting throughout the entire film, and frankly, he just got on my last nerve. Mandy Moore, however, is charming as always. That being said, Robin Williams' role didn't do him justice, I was a little disappointed about that. Had it been a little better written, and slightly differently cast this film could have been much better and funnier. The end was decent, though most everything leading up to it was either cheesy or too ridiculous to have any meaning.

License to Wed is an occasionally funny film that doesn't have much of a point. The movie has a decent script and good cast starting with John Krasinski, who is a good actor that doesn't get a lot of recognition, he has a knack for comedy and has good delivery and Mandy Moore who is also talented. these two work well together and both give good performances. Robin Williams is also fun, but the problem with the movie is that they never reveal his characters reason for acting the way he does, because of that, the film is a dissapointment. The movie in many ways resembles MEET THE PARENTS.

I really thought this movie was better than expected. It was fun to see the many characters from The Office make an apperance. I really enjoyed the interactions between Robin Williams and John Krasinski. Mandy Moore isn't the best, but she gives this movie it's pretty face. This funny movie gave me many laughs.

I was going to let this one go but then saw that all the reviews for it were insanely positive.
License to Wed features Moore as a bride-to-be who attends a wedding preparation course with her fiance (John Krasinksi) led by a deranged preacher (Robin Williams) whose sole purpose is to destroy their relationship, cancel their marriage plans, and make them hate each other. Why? That’s a damn good question! His back-assword reasoning is if they get back together after this then they are truly meant to be together?! So let me get this straight, the film is about a minister who destroys peoples lives and happiness because he thinks it might (he has no idea if they will survive) improve their relationship? This is one of the stupidest ideas for a movie EVER! The stupidity of the …

I have to say that John Kransinski is one of my favorite actors out there right now. His comedy is sharp, understated and it's hard not to love him. He was the perfect choice for this film and by far it's shining star. Robin Williams was about how you would expect him. What I liked about this particular role is that he didn't try to hard or go too overboard. Mandy More, however, is a whole other story. Is she beautiful? Yes. Can she sing? Yes. Can she act? Heck no! So why is it that she keeps getting these roles which could be outstanding if done by the right person?? I just don't get it. And what i don't understand even more than that is why do I still like her?? The whole situation just makes me angry, but it is one I'm willing to overlook for the sake of this movie. Be prepared for a …

Robin Williams has been completely rediculous and sometimes unwatchable on his latest TV appearances. I must give credit to him though, his last 3 performances I would rank "pretty good" at worst. For those counting that's "Night At the Museum", "Man of the Year", and "R.V." Yep, that's right! I'm the guy that saw R.V... and it wasn't bad.
John Krasinski was also good in what I believe is his first leading role in a movie. Improv comedians such as John are going to take over comedies for the next couple years at least. Mark me down for that prediction right now.
Here's where this movie went horribly wrong. Mandy Moore is the new Drew Barrymoore. She sucks at acting but you can't find anything to really hate about her... so you deal with it.
This film brought a legend and …
