Ben Murphy (John Krasinski) and Sadie Jones (Mandy Moore--Chasing Liberty) are young, in love and plan to marry. The only catch is Sadie's family church, St. Augstine's, and its Reverend Frank (Academy Award winner Robin Williams--Happy Feet, Man of the Year), who will only bless Ben and Sadie's union after they pass his patented, "foolproof" marriage-prep course. Consisting of outrageous classes, outlandish homework assignments and outright in invasion of privacy, Reverend Frank's rigorous curriculum puts Ben and Sadie's relationship to the test. Forget happily ever after--do they even have what it takes to earn their License to Wed.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Featuring one of Robin Williams' most shtick-heavy performances, the broad and formulaic License to Wed wrings little out of its slightly creepy, unappealing premise.

Common Sense Says
Predictable wedding comedy is all about Williams.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that teen girls -- especially those who are fans of Mandy Moore or The Office star John Krasinski -- will be interested in this romantic comedy. Because the plot revolves around a wacky minister's intense premarital counseling course, there's lots of talk about sexuality, parenting, communicating, and intimacy, but it's all handled in a comedic manner. The reverend's "no sex before the honeymoon" rule is harmlessly discussed and tested in many scenes -- although safe sex isn't discussed specifically. Language is on the mild side but includes "s--t," and "ass." The minister is highly unorthodox and all-too-willing to intrude inappropriately (illegal surveillance, for example) on couples in his class.
