Did You Know?
When Katie asks for Anderson's address when booking a taxi, Anderson says '6 New Lane' – this is actually the real address for the apartments in Staten Island where it is filmed.
In the scene where it says 'One year later' and Anderson wakes up, Ted enters and says 'Hey you hungry?' with straight hair. But by the next scene in the diner, his hair is curly.
I like your Jew hat.
The Pleasure of This Film
I didn't know what to expect from 'Wedding Daze' aka 'The Pleasure of
Your Company'. Then I saw that it starred Jason Biggs and Isla Fisher
and I thought why not give it a go. At first I thought it was another
American comedy with the usual toilet humour. It also started off real
slow but soon it picks up and gets funnier. I ended up laughing a lot
as I quite enjoyed the film.
Of course the story is a typical romantic comedy and all but the comedy
is very situational and most of the jokes are funny. I personally
enjoyed the sequence where the whole cast is in jail. You've got the
sentimental fluffy humour and the sex comedy which mingle quite well.
Perhaps some of the jokes could have been a little toned down,
especially the sexual humour. Also a few of the jokes just aren't funny
and some situations look forced. Some of the punchlines just miss the
Jason Biggs and Isla Fisher form quite a likable fresh pair. There is a
sweet chemistry and the actors blend quite well. However Biggs is a
little in his 'American Pie' mode. From the supporting cast, I loved
Joanna Gleeson. She was absolutely hilarious in the jail scene. The
rest of the cast work well too.
This is quite an enjoyable flick and works well for a rainy day or as a
