The only positive thing that can be said for The Wedding Date is that for some completely inexplicable reason it is set in England and so includes some lovely pastoral scenery and some interesting looking hats.
The main problem with the film is that it seems to be missing a sequence where we see Kat and Nick actually falling for each other - the script pretty much expects us to take it for granted just because they're the leads.
If you can manage all that, and the chemistry between the leads will conspire to help you, then you might find "The Wedding Date'' an amusing take on the strange ways of modern matchmaking, served up with a side dish of self-help for the single gal.
Seldom has a movie so blatantly illustrated the need for genuine star power in the lead, especially considering The Wedding Date's obvious comparisons to not one, but three more successful Julia Roberts movies.
