It was much better than Cats. I'm going to see it again and again.

But seriously, it was really damn funny. Surprisingly naughty--it was advertised as more of a fun-for-all-ages comedy and it's not, so much.

If you liked Dodgeball or Bad Santa, you'll enjoy this as much as I did.

Damnit. I meant to go all the way to 10, but I guess I missed something.

7 for me (out of 10)

I am becoming a Rachel McAdams fan.

Liked it very much. Lotsa good one liners. I gave it a 7.

Best part was when Owen/Luke Wilson (can't remember which one is which) tries to crash weddings by himself.

Count me in on the Rachel McAdams fan club as well please.

I FINALLY saw this for the first time last night. Easily the funniest movie I've seen all year. Vince Vaughn was amazing, and you knew that you know who HAD to be Chaz even the first time he was mentioned. This may be a "for all ages minus kids" comedy- my 80-year-old grandmother saw it and loved it. Go figure.

We just got back from seeing this. OMG - I haven't laughed that hard in ages. The opening 20 minutes is hysterical. Owen Wilson, Vince Vaughn, Christopher Walken and Rachel McAdams are very well cast. If you're in the mood for a comedy, it's a great choice.

Saw it last night. I thought it was funny. MUCH better than 40 Year Old Virgin (why everyone was mentioning them in the same breath I'm not sure).

Rachel McAdams = Top 5

An easy 7 for me, yeah McAdams is hot, and there is something about Wilson that I like, maybe it's his nose...

i wasn't into this movie at all, but the scene where they're playing football on the island started me on a laughing jag that lasted pretty much through the rest of the movie.

I'd give it a solid 6, overall... a score that would've been higher had we seen Rachel McAdams naked.

I just watched the first 15 minutes of this film again on cable. I love it - it may be one of the best montages ever compiled in a film. Just brilliant.

I added the 10.

The thing that keeps all of us from getting our last option in there is the same. You need to hit that "Add option" button after typing your final option into the field.

Learn. Poll.

I couldn't get through the first 15 minutes on cable. Just wasn't funny. Maybe if it had less punch-worthy actors, but I don't know. The writing seemed pretty lame.

I just loved the concept about how all weddings are the same, despite the cultural trimmings. That appealed to me.

Ollie, i agree. I had a hard time with the movie up till the point where they go to the family's island home. At which point i started laughing so consistently, i had to give the film its due.

Agreed with Ollie Owned on this.

A fine bunch of perfomers here --- the Wilsons, Vaughn, Ferrell, Stiller --- all seem to end up in movies with each other and the producers think it's just get a concept, wind them up, let thiem go. Writers are out there for a reason.

Hire one.
