License to Wed


License to Wed
A young man and woman meet, fall in love, and decide to marry. She wants the wedding in a particular church, and in order to marry there, they have to satisfy the minister in charge that they are ready for marriage. So they begin counselling and trying to follow his rules, which include no hanky-panky until after the ceremony. The minister takes his job a bit too seriously and resorts to spying on the couple to ensure that his instructions are being followed. The critics were generally not impressed.

What the Critics say

Cape Argus / The Star
Zane Henry quote iconIt's so dire, a block of tofu seems rivetting

Die Burger
Jeanne Hugo quote iconMoenie anderhalfuur van jou lewe hierop mors nie.

The Citizen
David Batzofin quote iconSome movie goers will no doubt see this movie as irreverent, but I had a good laugh.
12
Sunday Times
Barry Ronge quote iconFlinging this prying priest into an inoffensive little romantic comedy is like putting a firecracker in the bride's bouquet. It's just not funny.

24.com
Nomfundo Mbaba-Tshabalala quote iconRather than funny, this comedy is at best just plain ridiculous.
5
Box Office
Chad Greene quote iconThis utterly joyless introduction to marriage is sadly in character for Reverend Frank, who compares the institution to sticking your tongue to a frozen flagpole. And anyone who wanders into License to Wed expecting a sweet-natured romantic comedy is likely to feel like the sensitive surface of that metaphorical tongue: ripped off.

ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconThis movie is bad from top to bottom, front to back, and start to finish.

quote iconThis Meet the Wedding Minister story simply can't deliver on its vows to make us laugh.
