LICENSE TO WED Premieres Today

July 3, 2007 by  

Today’s the day. Finally, the premiere of LICENSE TO WED! has been following this movie since it was first announced that OFFICE star John Krasinski signed on as the lead role . We’ve posted production stills, news, trailers and now it’s here. And I’m going to see it today!!

If we’re being honest, the movie is getting killed by critics. But what do critics know, right? I think I’m going to enjoy the popcorn flick. And I’ve been supporting John Krasinski before anyone really knew who he was, so of course I’ll be heading to Chestnut Hill to see it today.

To honor the launch of the film, here’s a short little blooper reel from LICENSE TO WED.

    I’ll be going today too GMMR. I wish I was in your part of the state because it would be fun to go see it with you. The Boston Herald says John is around Boston these days, so maybe you’ll run into him.

    I had free passes to see this Thursday and was all set to see the sneak preview, but couldn’t make it due to a death, but some of my friends went and they (guys) said it was really good. I always say if the critics give it bad ratings, I’m really going to love the movie. There are very few movies I agree with the critics about.

    I am leaving to go see it in like a minute and I am so friggin excited, I can’t wait. I am squealing. I don’t care what the critics say… its JK… big screen. A lot of JK on the big screen. Oh and I am sure the other stuff is important also…

    Enjoy! You really can’t trust a 50 year old male’s review of this movie. I believe the reviews that say it is 90 mins of mindless fun with actors you like and, oh, btw, there are a few laughs to boot.

  6. Kristi on July 3rd, 2007 12:16 pm

    hee! Bloopers! Those were great – thanks 🙂

    I can’t go see it until my friend comes into town next week.. we made a pact 🙁

  7. Sus on July 3rd, 2007 12:36 pm

    I NEVER agree with the critics. If that Roeper dude and I were ever in the same room, it would come to blows.

    I won’t be seeing it today but probably this weekend. I’m excited! 🙂

  8. bubblewrap on July 3rd, 2007 12:53 pm

    I’m planning on seeing the movie tomorrow. I’m excited and I don’t really care what the critics say. They don’t like “chick flick” movies most of the time anyway….

  9. HealthcareHottie on July 3rd, 2007 2:08 pm

    My husband agreed to go see it with me tomorrow when we both have the day off (mostly because Robin Williams is in it, but I’ll make a JK fan out of him yet) as long as I agreed to see Bruce Willis’ newest Die Hard installment with him. I’m not really looking forward to that, but marriage is all about diplomacy and compromise, right?? I’m at least guaranteed a good nap if nothing else. Who knows, I may even like it. Nah, probably not.

  10. CrazyGringa on July 3rd, 2007 2:30 pm

    Can I just say how excited I am to see this movie? We are going to see it tomorrow and I don’t see how this movie can do any wrong. I mean John on a huge screen for an hour and a half is going to make this married woman turn into a 12 year old fan girl. I hope my hubby understands ;o)

  11. Give Me My Remote on July 3rd, 2007 2:33 pm

    I’m in theater now. The movie is starting in a few. There are 10 of us here.

  12. Pamela Halpert on July 3rd, 2007 2:45 pm

    I’m so excited for this movie! I don’t care what critics say–it’s an hour and a half of JKras! I have to wait until this weekend to see it since I’m in college for extra classes. Only a few more days….

  13. Kim on July 3rd, 2007 3:06 pm

    Just got back from seeing it. JKras on the big screen…Swoon!
    It was fun to watch all of the other Office people pop up as well.

  14. CrazyGringa on July 3rd, 2007 4:07 pm

    Those of you watching it today, please post mini-reviews.

  15. Mannie on July 3rd, 2007 4:11 pm

    Kath, I’m so sorry you had to see it with SO many people!!! 😉

  16. Give Me My Remote on July 3rd, 2007 4:59 pm

    Ok kids- just got back from seeing LICENSE TO WED. The movie wasn’t that great BUT if you are a full-fledged John Kraisnski fan then it’s going to be hard for you NOT to love it. I had a big ‘ol grin on my face from beginning to the end of the movie. I forgave a lot of bad plot points and went with it because I got lost in watching JKras on the big screen. That being said, it really wasn’t THAT horrible. I found myself (and the others in the audience) laughing out loud at times.

    It’s honestly an hour and a half of John Krasinski….I’d pay way more than $7.50 for that!

  17. Laura on July 3rd, 2007 6:25 pm

    I agree, GMMR. It’s not exactly a stellar script, but I think the actors did a good job with what they had. It was so fun to see the many “Office” castmates and, of course, John was very easy to watch for 100 minutes. (I especially loved the jeans and white t-shirt look towards the end!) My recommendation is to keep your expectations moderate and hope to be pleasantly surprised. There were about 40 people in the theater with me, and many of them laughed consistently throughout the show.

    On a somewhat related note, I did see “Evan Almighty” over the weekend and had my expectations well surpassed! So get out there and support both of these movies and our beloved Office friends!

  18. Amanda on July 3rd, 2007 6:55 pm

    I wholeheartedly agree with both GMMR and Laura. I saw the movie earlier today, and yeah, it wasn’t great. But it didn’t totally suck either, and it was well worth seeing because our beloved John Krasinski is officially the most adorable thing that has ever existed in the universe. Seriously, he’s ridiculously lovable/crush-worthy. I thoroughly enjoyed watching him on the big screen for an hour and forty minutes, and I’d see License to Wed again just for that reason. In fact, I probably will.

    Nothing like a family cookout on the opening weekend of your critically panned movie to keep you grounded, I guess. Only thing that saves him is that his parents are in the movie as well.

  20. CrazyGringa on July 4th, 2007 4:13 am

    So do his real parents play his movie parents or are they other characters?

  21. Lisa (aka lmr722) on July 4th, 2007 9:20 am

    Saw it last night with another office flan here in Boston. (Wasn’t sure how to reach you GMMR, as I would have liked to join up with you) The theater was about 3/4 full with most of the movie goers heading over to Transformers. Tough day to open what with it the eve of a huge holiday and the biggest summer blockbuster opening. I didn’t mind having JKras to ourselves, though.

    I thought it was all around adorkable. Not oscar material but very cute and well worth the money for uninterrupted JKras viewing time 🙂

  22. Give Me My Remote on July 4th, 2007 12:05 pm

    CrazyGringa – In the movie, Ron and Mary Murphy (Ben’s parents) are played by Ron and Mary Krasinski. And yeah, how weird must it have been for John and his parents to shoot a wedding scene?!

  23. Emmaxoxlee on July 4th, 2007 1:06 pm

    i saw it in a packed theatre.
    it was heard to even find two seats together.
    but all in all i agree.
    the movie was average, but with that much screen time of our lovely john how could i not be smiling the whole time!
    AND my friend completely feel in love with him! which made my night.

    i loved all of the office cameos [made my smile even widder]
    the only negative thing was that i feel like i watched so many trailers that i had already seen half the movie. i probably would have enjoyed the movie more if i could have resisted all the trailers. but im weak. :]
    and i knew those had to be his parents. he looks so much like his dad!

  24. CrazyGringa on July 4th, 2007 1:20 pm

    Thanks for the info. I’m going to watch it later on with a bunch of friends. I’ll make sure to look out for his parents. As Salt n Pepa so eloquently said: “I want to thank his mother for a butt like that”

  25. Amanda on July 5th, 2007 12:45 am

    My sister and I didn’t go in with high expectations and we thought it was good. It’s not going to win any awards, but there were some pretty funny parts. As I expected John was funny and cute.

  26. Stacy on July 5th, 2007 3:11 pm

    Saw it with my sister and thought it was cute. Loved John, of course. It was really funny though – every time there was an Office cameo, half the theater would gasp and say the character’s name. “Kelly!” “Kevin!” “Angela!” Guess the audience was full of Office fans! 🙂

  27. mickey on July 5th, 2007 10:15 pm

    i saw this opening night – and i went TO see it. it was FANTASTIC. what a cute and light comedy. it was really hilarous with a continuous storyline. that little kid was GREAT. it was really a great movie. the critics DO NOT know what they are talking about. i dont listen to critics anyhow. i really loved this movie – much better than the crap i have recently seen.

  28. karen on July 6th, 2007 1:15 am

    saw it opening day- love JK, and it was so nice to see him on the big screen, and in almost every scene! i noticed a lot of his facial expressions were very jim-esque. they were some young girls behind me squealing when he came onscreen. i was alone, so i had to squeal inside to myself! i think JK is a born romantic comedy lead- i hope he gets a better script next time around.

  29. Colin on July 6th, 2007 10:51 am

    Richard Crouse, CTV Canada AM’s movinista, gave it no stars.

    (not sure if HTML works: )

    I’ll see it anyway out of spite.

  30. Pamela Halpert on July 7th, 2007 11:15 pm

    I just saw License to Wed. It was not that great of a movie and had some weak points in the plot. BUT it had John Krasinski for the entire movie, so totally worth my $9.25. I might just have to buy the movie on DVD because of JKras.
