Wedding Crashers comes to DVD.
With all the parties, cleaning and vacations going on during the holidays I figured it was easy to forget that the best comedy of 2005 has been released to DVD only today. The Wedding Crashers DVD comes in two formats-- the theatrical release and an unrated edition (right) -- and they both look pretty mustard.
Wedding Crashers DVD
You always wonder how much more a film can cram into an 'unrated edition' and, in most cases, we usually end up disappointed. However, in the case of Wedding Crashers we have already received plenty of positive reviews claiming that the Uncorked Edition is a no-brainer. Check out some of the DVD details below:

With Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson as a pair of brazen wedding crashers, this buddy/romantic comedy milks a few big laughs from its foolproof premise. Under the direction of David Dobkin (who previously worked with Wilson on Shanghai Knights ), the movie ranges from bawdy romp to mushy romance, and that tonal identity crisis curtails the overall hilarity. But when the well-teamed costars are firing on all pistons with fast-paced dialogue and manic situations, belly laughs are delivered at a steady clip. Things get complicated when the guys infiltrate the family of the Treasury Secretary (Christopher Walken), resulting in a romantic pair-off between Vaughn and the congressman's oversexed daughter Gloria (Isla Fisher) while Wilson sincerely woos another daughter, Claire (Rachel McAdams), who's unhappily engaged to an Ivy League cheater (Bradley Cooper).
If you have any doubts on the unrated version of Wedding Crashers, just know that the DVD is already ranked #1 in Amazon's DVD Sales. Not too freakin' bad!
