Wedding Crashers (***)

A breath of fresh air in a summer of remakes and sequels. This is one funny movie. Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn play off each other remarkably well. Vaughn is on fire the entire movie. Every joke out of his mouth is a winner, and that guy talks fast. Wilson gets stuck with an obligatory romantic comedy subplot, but he's likeable, as is The Notebook's Rachel McAdams. The movie goes on a little too long, but it has built up so much goodwill in the audience before then that you don't really care. Plus, there's a great cameo in the end. I won't spoil who it is though. Still, this one should make Vaughn the star that Swingers fans always knew he was. Great cast, and lots of laughs. Wedding Crashers is the real comedy deal. A wickedly funny R-rated romp that's as enjoyable for girls as it is for guys.

Didn't you feel like Vince Vaughn was just playing the same character that he played in Swingers? Not that it wasn't funny. I also felt like they could have cast a taller woman for poor Vince. Even when she was wearing heels, he looked like he had to slouch. They should have cast me!!!
