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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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