Crossing over with this film: There are certain elements that when you have a film that’s an all African-American cast or theme that you expect to get.
Last night (January 13, 2015), I had the pleasure of attending ‘The Wedding Ringer‘ screening, starring Kevin Hart and produced by Will Packer and all of Atlanta came out. Vaughn, RL from R&B Group NEXT, Headkrack and Gary with Da Tea of the ‘Rickey Smiley Morning Show’ were some of the celebs in attendance.
Let’s get into this film, chile Taking place in LA, a soon to be groom Doug Harris (actor Josh Gad) seeks the help of Jimmy Callahan ( actor Kevin Hart) who’s the owner of Best Man, Inc., a company that provides best men for men who ultimately have no friends.
From the opening scene, the movie had me in stitches.
It was interesting to see, Doug, a socially awkward guy that was so into his business that he never made friends, interact with Jimmy, a man that rarely made friends himself because he was always paid to be someone else to the men that had no friends.
Hart is at his best in ‘Wedding Ringer.’ Watching him was just like going to one of his comedy shows because everything seemed so natural.
He was really in his element and I loved every minute of it.
Seeing Hart, Affion Crockett, and the other actors in the movie working with good chemistry was so refreshing.
If you didn’t know any better, you would think these guys were friends for years.
The film is indeed hilarious, but you can definitely take-away a few life lessons from it. Who wants to plan a wedding and not have anyone to celebrate with?
I don’t want to give too much of the movie away but let’s just say that Jimmy and Doug go through a lot in two weeks and form an unexpected bond.
From disastrous family dinners to chaotic bachelor parties, this is one big adventure that leads to a friendship and will have you crying tears, patting your knee, holding your stomach, and dying of laughter.
