REVIEW: THE WEDDING RINGER
Kevin Hart (Think Like a Man Too) takes wedding planning to a whole new level of hilarity as the “Best Man” money can buy in THE WEDDING RINGER, debuting on Digital HD April 14, and on Blu-ray™ and DVD April 28 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. The buddy comedy also stars Josh Gad (Frozen) as Doug, who finds himself without a main groomsman only two weeks before his wedding to Gretchen, played by Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting (“The Big Bang Theory”). Given his time crunch before the big day, Doug hires Jimmy (Hart) to fill in, and an unexpected friendship develops. Also starring in THE WEDDING RINGER is Jorge Garcia (“Lost”), Academy Award® winner Cloris Leachman (Best Supporting Actress, The Last Picture Show, 1971), Jenifer Lewis (“Black-ish”) and Mimi Rogers (Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery).
THE WEDDING RINGER Blu-ray comes loaded with an hour of all-new bonus materials, including 15 deleted scenes, five laugh-out-loud outtake reels, as well as 14 minutes of the cast’s alternate takes of jokes during filming. Also included is Aloe Blacc’s music video, “Can You Do This.” Last but not least, fans will have the chance to hear from the cast on their personal wedding disaster stories in the “Going to the Chapel of Love” featurette.
SYNOPSIS: Doug is a 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, Doug is referred to Jimmy, who provides flattering best men for guys in need. What ensues is a hilarious wedding charade as they try to pull off the big con, and an unexpected budding friendship.
