The Wedding Ringer is a hilarious comedy film from the year 2015, directed by Jeremy Garelick. The movie stars Kevin Hart, Josh Gad, and Kaley Cuoco. The film follows Doug Harris (Josh Gad), a successful tax attorney who has everything in life except a best man for his wedding, which is just two weeks away. Doug is a socially awkward and introverted guy who never had the chance to make any close friends. Even worse, he has lied to his fiancée, Gretchen Palmer (Kaley Cuoco), that he has a group of loyal and supportive best friends who are coming to be his groomsmen at the wedding.

In a desperate search for a groomsmen, Doug turns to Jimmy Callahan (Kevin Hart), a professional best man or "Wedding Ringer." Jimmy's job is to provide groomsmen for grooms who have no close friends or family to serve the role. He offers a 7-member groomsmen package that includes a best man, that will play their parts throughout the wedding ceremony, party, and reception.

As Doug and Jimmy work together, the two develop an unlikely friendship. Jimmy starts to teach Doug how to be more confident and assertive, while Doug helps Jimmy reconnect with his long-lost son. However, things get out of hand when Doug becomes the target of Gretchen's overbearing father's (Ken Howard) aggressive questioning, and his groomsmen begin to unravel one by one. This leads to a series of hilarious events that involve strip clubs, midgets, and police officers.

The acting performances in "The Wedding Ringer" are exceptional. Kevin Hart delivers his witty, fast-paced, and hilarious lines with perfect comedic timing, and Josh Gad plays his role as the quintessential underdog who is impossible not to love. Kaley Cuoco's character brings a sweet and charming energy to the film, making the chemistry between her and Gad believable and emotional.

The film is visually stunning with beautiful cinematography in different locations. The soundtrack is also worth mentioning with some great original songs and covers that set the right mood for each scene.

One of the most enjoyable aspects of the film is the script, which perfectly balances raunchiness, absurdity, and a lot of heart. The Wedding Ringer is an incredibly funny and well-crafted comedy that doesn't take itself too seriously.
