The Wedding Date

           Debra Messing is best known as Grace Adler on a long running TV show Will and Grace. The show ran from 1998 to 2006. This movie was released in 2005. Well I’m no professional TV critic and I’m not familiar with the Nelson rating I’m thinking she knew she had one year left to go on her contract and decided to break out onto the silver screen and make a movie. 

This movie was pretty much her graduation from small to large screen in an attempt ( a rather vain one at that) to make it into movies. Well let me tell you something she petered off, she never reached maximum altitude she failed to climb to the summit. In short this movie just wasn’t all that.

I’m not saying it was bad mind you I’m simply acknowledging it wasn’t great. Not by my or any standards. It was simply a combination of My Best Friends Wedding and Pretty Woman. Except this time Messing was the token redhead in the staring or lead role instead of Julia Roberts. I hate to break it to you Ms. Messing you are no  Julia Roberts. 

While this movie had it moments like 3 fun songs played during crucial scenes like the opening scene, the required “Sex” scene and of course the eventual wedding scene. Nothing about this movie was original, unseen or even remotely creative. A lot of movies in  Hollywood  today meet the above criticisms. That being said this movie was one of the more entertaining ones.

I did laugh a few times, I even dropped what I was doing for one hour and 19 minutes to give this movie my undivided attention. (for the most part). I just wasn’t hooked in, enthralled or engrossed for that matter. I was however entertained for a morning and that my friends deservers a C+.

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!
