(This review may contain spoilers).
I thought the idea behind this movie was a really interesting one. Considering how much people try to make money nowadays, I found the concept of someone hiring out their services as a best man to be a really believable one. It’s something I could see people actually doing in reality.
It was good to meet Doug at the beginning of the film and I couldn’t help feeling sorry for him. There weren’t as many comedy moments in the film as I was expecting, but it was still entertaining to watch.
I felt that the actors playing the groomsmen played really well off each other. There were only about three actors I actually recognised, but I did like them all in this. (I’ve seen a lot of the Big Bang Theory, but I was able to differentiate between Gretchen and Penny).
There were some very cringe-worthy moments in this movie and a few times where I felt it should have had a bit of a higher rating. The friendship between Doug and Jimmy was quite sweet and believable.
There were a couple of unexpected things that happened in this movie and quite a few that made me glad it was only just a movie. I really didn’t like Gretchen’s dad at all. I did find it difficult to tell the difference between some of the groomsmen at times, too.
I don’t think this is a film I’ll watch again, but it was entertaining to watch the first time and I felt the actors played believable characters.
