Critic Reviews for You May Not Kiss the Bride

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (5)

Its lunacy is well staged and fast-paced. Too bad the movie's premise is so lame that the nimbler moments can't redeem it.

September 21, 2012 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

The plotting just ends up feeling like a lot of business, ideas meant to keep the characters busy and in motion rather than actually reflecting anything like human behavior.

September 20, 2012 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Surely, some Hollywood studio in the 1950s made a prototype of the sprightly if erratic comedy "You May Not Kiss the Bride."

September 20, 2012 | Rating: 1.5/4

It's refreshing for critics when movies like "You May Not Kiss the Bride" come along. We don't get to use words like "insipid" nearly enough.

September 20, 2012 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

The charisma and comic timing of the film's female leads make up for some of the screenwriting rough patches but not enough to justify a trip to the theater.

September 20, 2012 | Rating: 2.0/5.0 | Full Review…

A movie that never figures out a way to stitch together all of its incongruous elements.

Audience Reviews for You May Not Kiss the Bride


They don't know each other but they're forced to pretend as lf they're married, so what do you think happens by the last reel? Yeah, it's that kind of a predictable romcom. Okay, then maybe the characterizations save it? Uh-uh. Put it this way: Rob Schneider steals the whole film. Need I say more? And he plays a fourth string character. But as good as Schneider is(or as he can be in controlled doses) it's the lead male, Annable, who truly fails this film. All the personality of a old bar of soap. They put the whole film on him, as if he were a Grant or a Stewart ... but he's not. He's not even close. Blah.
