You May Not Kiss the Bride Reviews

  • Its lunacy is well staged and fast-paced. Too bad the movie's premise is so lame that the nimbler moments can't redeem it.

    Mark Jenkins — Washington Post

  • It's refreshing for critics when movies like "You May Not Kiss the Bride" come along. We don't get to use words like "insipid" nearly enough.

    Bill Goodykoontz — Arizona Republic

  • The plotting just ends up feeling like a lot of business, ideas meant to keep the characters busy and in motion rather than actually reflecting anything like human behavior.

    Mark Olsen — Los Angeles Times

  • A movie that never figures out a way to stitch together all of its incongruous elements.

    Brent Simon —

  • The low-brow script leads the characters through one far-fetched scenario after another with few laughs along the way. But at least the scenery is nice.

    Todd Jorgenson —

  • Surely, some Hollywood studio in the 1950s made a prototype of the sprightly if erratic comedy "You May Not Kiss the Bride."

    Tom Keogh — Seattle Times

  • A noisy, unlikable distraction that seems more invested in photographing lush Hawaiian locations than solidifying a sense of humor that might coexist peacefully with the violence.

    Brian Orndorf —

  • The charisma and comic timing of the film's female leads make up for some of the screenwriting rough patches but not enough to justify a trip to the theater.

    Brian Tallerico —

  • This irredeemably silly tropical screwball comedy, made in 2009, is only now getting a release-and that's no surprise.

    David Noh — Film Journal International
