As one of the most successful comedy films of the year 2005, Wedding Crashers is a must-watch for fans of humor and romance. The movie features dynamic duos played by Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn who are experts in crashing weddings. They go to wedding receptions uninvited, pretend that they are a part of the wedding party or come up with different made-up roles to enjoy free drinks and buffet, and to meet women.

The plot revolves around two best friends, Jeremy (Vince Vaughn) and John (Owen Wilson), who are divorce mediators during the daytime and wild wedding crashers at night. They have a slew of well-crafted pick-up lines and strategies to charm women and secretly record their conquests in their wedding crasher guidebook. However, their plans get complicated when they attend the wedding of their Treasury Secretary's daughter and John falls for one of the bridesmaids, Claire (Rachel McAdams), while Jeremy attracts the attention of Gloria (Isla Fisher), the bride's sister.

Things seem to be going well for John and Claire until he finds out that Claire is engaged, and she breaks off their fling. Later, John quits his job, joins Jeremy on another wedding crash, and they end up at a mansion on the Chesapeake Bay, where the reception is in full swing. As they try to enjoy the festivities, they soon discover that the family they are "crashing" is none other than Claire and her fiancé Zach's. The duo's antics result in some hilarious moments, but also cause them to reveal their true identities, leading to Jeremy's arrest and John's estrangement from Claire.

Despite the chaos, John decides to crash another wedding with Jeremy, where he spends time commiserating with the bride's elderly grandmother, Chazz (Ellen Albertini Dow). Chazz teaches John about love and the importance of settling down with one person. The two buds resolve their problems and decide to get back together, this time with the intent of finding love genuinely. They both attend Claire and Zach's wedding, and John gives a heartfelt speech in which he expresses how much Claire means to him. Although he doesn't win Claire back, he is happy and content with Jeremy, knowing that they have left their wedding-crashing days behind.

Wedding Crashers is relatively light on the issues of social commentary, but it does approach the theme of honesty and the complexity of human relationships. As the movie progresses, John and Jeremy learn that their earlier behavior towards women was unethical, and they do everything to make amends. Additionally, it tackles how men and women can often view relationships from entirely different perspectives, with the latter often viewing them more seriously and committal while the former can be more lighthearted and casual.

Throughout the movie, viewers get to see some of the most endearing moments when John and Jeremy charm their way through the wedding receptions. The impressive cast and great performances from the actors make the movie both amusing and romantic. Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn have an excellent chemistry that transmits onto the audience. Moreover, Rachel McAdams and Isla Fisher give impressive performances and play good foils for the leads. Ellen Albertini Dow gets a round of applause for her hilarious rendition of the song "Rappers Delight."

In conclusion, Wedding Crashers is a fun movie that is perfect for anyone looking for some laughs and entertainment. It provides some great moments with witty banter, cheeky humor, and truly fantastic chemistry among its cast. It is the perfect movie for those who enjoy romantic comedies and feel-good movies.

Wedding Crashers is a 2005 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 59 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 7.0 and a MetaScore of 64.
