watching "License to Wed" is that director Ken Kwapis has significant television credits "? "The Office," "The Bernie Mac Show," "Malcolm in the Middle" "? and only minimal film experience "? "The Beautician and the Beast" and "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants" are best-known. Bringing the worst of both sitcoms and bad films to this project, he produces a "sit-mov" lacking only a laugh track. Well, maybe not only. It also lacks laughs.
The story of a young couple "? Sadie (Mandy Moore) and Ben (John Krasinski) "? forced to go through a nightmare version of pre-marriage counseling with the Rev. Frank (Robin Williams) tries to make a joke of everything about relationships and fails consistently.
The most amusing thing in the film "? and only during final credits "? is a pair of animatronic babies meant to show wannabe parents the difficulty of raising children. If only little animatronic movies-to-be-directed existed for wannabe filmmakers. PG-13
