Two men (Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn) plan their lives around weddings, crashing as many of the nuptial receptions as they possibly can in an effort to have sex with as many women as they possibly can. The last wedding of the season presents problems when one of the men falls in love with one of the women in the wedding party. Also with Rachel McAdams, Christopher Walken and Will Ferrell. Directed by David Dobkin. [1:59]

SEX/NUDITY 7 - Several women (one at a time) flop back onto beds, and two women have removed their clothes down to their bras and panties, while others are bare breasted; two men climb on top of the women (the men are bare chested), they kiss, and one women wraps her leg around a man as they kiss (she is wearing a thong that reveals a bare buttock).
 A nude woman (we see bare breasts and bare buttocks) ties a man to a bed (by his hands and feet), he protests, she puts a sock in his mouth and tape over it, and she tells him she will make, "all of his fantasies come true." A bare-chested young man wearing underwear climbs into bed with a man who is tied by the hands and feet to the bed posts, he puts his head under the covers when someone else is coming into the room, he hides in a closet, and then climbs back into bed with the man, kisses his finger and presses it to the man's lips.
 An older woman comes into a younger man's room, she drops her dress (we see her bare back), she walks toward the man talking about having had her breasts "done," she tells him repeatedly to touch them and he does, rubbing them (we see her from the side and part of her bare breasts are visible); then she pulls on her dress and walks out of the room.
 A woman rubs a man's crotch under a dinner table where other people are eating (we see her hand rubbing); the man breathes erratically while trying to continue a conversation.
 A woman tends to a cut on a man's knee (she is on her knees in front of him and he is sitting), she lifts his shirt and asks if she can, "blow on it," she startles him and tells him that she is "not wearing any panties," and she kisses his neck and tries to convince him to have sex with her, but he does not.
 Women wear low-cut tops and dresses that reveal cleavage throughout the movie, women wear dresses that are low-cut in the front and back, and a woman wears a short top that reveals her bare abdomen. We see a portrait of a nude man with a fig leaf over his crotch. A woman removes buckshot from a man's buttocks (we see the side of his bare hip).
 A man and a woman dress after having had sex on a beach (we see part of the man's bare chest as he buttons his shirt) and they kiss.
 A man walks into a room and finds a man standing with a woman whose legs are wrapped around his waist (the man's pants are down around his ankles and we see his boxers and bare chest) and they are kissing.
 Men and women kiss in many scenes. A man kisses a man on the mouth (it does not appear to be sexual; the man receiving the kiss is a priest).
 Men and women dance together in many scenes, holding each other close and caressing each other. A man makes sexual gestures with his arms and thrusts his hips forward. A woman wraps her arms around a man's shoulders and nuzzles his neck. An older woman makes sexual advances toward a younger man.
 A man talks about having been raped. A man talks about a woman wanting a man to make sexual advances, and he talks about a man wanting to have sex with a woman without worrying about anyone finding out. A man talks about first dates and the sexual aspects of figuring out how far the physical aspect of the evening may go. A man talks to a priest about a woman having lied to him about being a virgin. A man talks about the size of a woman's breasts in a demeaning manner. A woman talks about people "suckling at the power teat."
 Two men look at women at many weddings and choose which one to pursue and have sex with before the night is over.

VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - During a football game a man is knocked hard to the ground a few times and takes some time to get back up, complaining that he can't breathe.
 A man is thrown out of a hotel and into a street, and two men pick him up and hold him while another man knees him in the stomach, and punches him twice in the face (we see his bloody mouth). A man punches a man hard in the stomach. A man punches a man in the nose and he falls back onto the floor (we see blood on his nose).
 Several men go quail hunting and one man is shot in the buttocks with buckshot (we see holes in his pants and he yells). A woman removes buckshot from a man's buttocks. A young woman hits a man on the knee, where he has a cut, and then squirts him with an antiseptic spray causing him to yell.
 A man talks about having been raped. A man and a woman argue bitterly over a divorce settlement. People grieve at funerals. An elderly woman speaks angrily about people being homosexuals. A young woman stomps her feet and holds her breath to get her way.
 A man vomits violently and repeatedly after drinking wine laced with eye drop solution. A man shoves a lot of food in his mouth in several scenes.

Our Ratings Explained

A CAVEAT: We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and some of our early standards were not as stringent as they are now. We therefore need to revisit many older reviews, especially those written prior to 1998 or so; please keep this in mind if you're consulting a review from that period. While we plan to revisit and correct older reviews our resources are limited and it is a slow, time-consuming process.

INAPPROPRIATE ADS? We have little control over ads since we belong to ad agencies that serve ads automatically; a standing order should prevent provocative ads, but inappropriate ads do sneak in.
