Storyline

Doug Harris (Josh Gad) is a lovable but socially awkward groom-to-be with a problem: he has no best man. With less than two weeks to go until he marries the girl of his dreams (Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting), Doug is referred to Jimmy Callahan (Kevin Hart), owner and CEO of Best Man, Inc., a company that provides flattering best men for socially challenged guys in need. What ensues is a hilarious wedding charade as they try to pull off the big con, and an unexpected budding bromance between Doug and his fake best man Jimmy. Written by Sony Pictures Entertainment

Trivia

The music used during the football scene was from the score of Rudy (1993). See more »

Goofs

In the football scene between the groomsmen and old guys; after the first touchdown, the Father-in-Law shouts "touchdown, 7 to nothing." There was no extra point attempt or field goal. It was only 6-0. However, most pickup football games don't abide by the textbook rules of football (fewer players, less equipment, smaller fields, etc.) and thus it can be assumed that traditional scoring was also altered making the extra point automatic.

Quotes

Jimmy: This is what you have to understand, Doug. Some people are just loners. It's that simple, man.
Doug Harris: Maybe I don't want to be. Maybe I just want someone to grab a beer with, to go on a cool guy trip with.
Jimmy: You've never been on a guy trip, Doug? Cabo, Cancun, spring break? You've never done anything like that?
Doug Harris: I never really had anyone to go with.

A comedy starring Kevin Hart, The Wedding Ringer is a tale of a Jimmy Callahan (Kevin Hart) who has a business that help grooms survive the wedding process. In this case Doug Harris (Josh Gad) has found the woman of his dreams. He just has to give her the fairy tale ending she deserves. In comes Bic (Kevin Hart) to save the day (for a small fee) and allow the couple to live happily ever after. A silly funny film that makes for a good laugh and realize the silliness of putting needless pressures on a big day in a man and woman's life. A perfect movie for those days you want to have a big laugh. I enjoyed it and can't wait for my wedding day.
