The Wedding Planner

Mary Fiore is the best wedding planner in her company. She is looking to make partner and must plan on last wedding before she gets promoted. Since she is overworked she ironically has no time for love. Every thing changes when her life is rescued by a handsome pediatric doctor named Steve Edison (Matthew McConaughey). The twist however is that he is the groom to be in the wedding she’s hired to plan. The plot is simple and contrite. The comedy is cute and witty. The Acting is adequate and hopeful. The Movie as a whole however just plans to fizzle. While the romance is charming in parts it’s all a little to perfect. The ending is just to commercial and Hollywood and the build up to it just never seems to gel. While i thoroughly enjoyed this flick i can’t say i loved it. It is completely forgettable yet entirely cute. I know i seem like I’m mixing metaphors her but that simply describes my emotions toward this movie. I liked it but didn’t love it. This movie maybe enjoyed by the seemingly romanticltess woman in America it won’t be enjoyed by men. (at Least not this one) Matthew McConaughey and Jennifer Lopez have both made better career decisions. This movie will not top either of their mantle pieces and should simply be left alone. The Wedding Planner is intelligent and comedic it simply won’t get anyone in the mood for love. GRADE B-

A note from an editor!

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into this piece, especially on a Saturday morning. I can tell you definitely took good notes of everything that was going on during the event!

We still have some work to do before this piece is ready to print. Your piece has a lot of information, but it doesn’t sound like a news article. What was the point of his speech/presentation? Why was he addressing this audience? What is Vanguard? What does the company do – who does it serve? You spend a lot of time narrating (for example, how he was injured), but did not report on the purpose of the event. You can maybe mention his appearance/joking about it in a sentence or two, but do not take several paragraphs to do so. Also, I like how you mentioned where the name “Vanguard” comes from.

There are a lot of spelling errors in this piece – make sure you proof read each sentence carefully.

I know I am getting back to you a little later I hoped, and I’m sorry about that! But if you have time tonight, please go through my suggestions and try to rework your piece. You can send me what you have tonight/tomorrow morning. Please bring a copy of it to the meeting tomorrow and we will discuss it further from there.

Once again, thanks for your hard work and promptness! Remember this is a learning process, and we are all part of the Waltonian team!

Talk to you soon!
