After losing the woman of his dreams, Anderson is convinced he'll never fall in love again. But at the urging of his best friend, he spontaneously proposes to a dissatisfied waitress named Katie. The newly engaged couple must now try to find a way to get along.
Best known as a comedian, Stellas Michael Ian Black makes his directorial debut with Wedding Daze, AKA The Pleasure of Your Company. In the prologue, Anderson (Jason Biggs) dresses up as Cupid and proposes to his perfect girlfriend, who promptly keels over. A year later, he's still in mourning. Meanwhile, Katie (Isla Fisher) is also seeing a seemingly flawless fellow, and though her mother (Joanna Gleason) pressures her to accept his proposal, Katie has her doubts. The next day, she meets the unemployed Anderson at the diner where she works. On a dare, he asks her to marry him. Not only does she accept--she moves in with him. They make for an odd couple, but not as odd as their parents: Katie's stepfather (Matt Malloy) is a Jewish inventor, while her birth father (Joe Pantoliano) is a Buddhist convict; Anderson's parents (Margo Martindale and Edward Herrmann), on the other hand, are very happily married (suggestive words send them into a sexual frenzy). Clearly, Anderson and Katie's differing backgrounds create a momentary stumbling block, but their breakup lasts as long as their courtship--blink and you'll miss it. Denied a US theatrical release, Wedding Daze is a rough-around-the-edges, if sweet-natured romp. At the very least, it's superior to other wedding-oriented comedies of the time, like the crass License to Wed. There are a few unnecessary gross-out gags, but an appealing cast--including Rob Corddry as a good-natured deputy--distract from the more awkward moments. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

I very, very rarely actually laugh out loud at movies or shows, even when I find them funny. This had me laughing from beginning to end. It was so well written, totally off the wall funny and just one of those oddball comedies that just works.
If you like quirky and eclectic give it a try. Isla Fisher is adorable, and so is Jason Briggs. And the rest of the cast is great, too. All of the parents are wonderfully insane - in very different ways - and it's definitely an unusual collection of characters. But it works.
As far as the movie itself, I love it. I will always love it. I'm thrilled to own a copy. It is admittedly a very silly movie and one that does not require any sort of personal journey to appreciate. It's just fun. And a great cast of people you're guaranteed to recognize, even if their names escape you!
