Top 5 Wedding Movies
My Big Fat Greek Wedding was a
Hi, I'm Lauren Zima with About.com. And dum dum dum dum, today we're looking at the top five wedding movies out there. At number five, 'Father of the Bride.' The original is great too, but we went with the Steve Martin update. Martin Short's hilarious wedding planner, Franck, gave this version the one up. Martin stars as a dad who's hesitant to give his only daughter away, especially to a guy he barely knows, and with a wedding that has a hefty price tag. Every dad's fears embodied, right? Diane Keaton compliments him perfectly as mother-of-the-bride. Number four is 'The Wedding Singer.' Adam Sandler's funny flick has an awesome '80s soundtrack and, of course, is all about finding true love in the end. One of many movies in which he and Drew Barrymore work their too-cute chemistry. At number three is 'Wedding Crashers.' Again -- a hugely funny movie, though this one goes down a bit of a raunchier, rated-R path. Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson are a perfect pair, and with a welcome cameo from pal Will Ferrell, this was one of those classic 'Frat Pack' flicks. But all the sexual humor was balanced with the fact that, in the end, they both wanted to find true love.In the number two spot -- 'Bridesmaids.' Kristen Wiig changed the face of female comedy with this one, proving, many movie critics said, that men could laugh at a movie with an all-female cast. This shows the bridesmaids' side of the pitfalls of planning a wedding -- hilariously. And number one -- My Big Fat Greek Wedding. This movie was a big, fat success -- one of the most successful independent films at the box office ever, and critics and audiences alike absolutely loved it. It's a love story that perfectly incorporates how a family can get way too involved in your relationship -- and your wedding. These have been the top five wedding movies ever. Hey -- handle your something borrowed -- see if a friend can loan you one of them. Thanks for watching. For more on movies, go to About.com.
