Genre: Comedy

Stars: Bryan Callen, Matt Servitto, Alexie Gilmore, Jane Lynch

Synopsis: An engaged couple's big day is three weeks away and they forgot to schedule the churches' mandatory couples counseling.  They are forced in last resort to one on one sessions with an eccentric middle aged married duo from the congregation.

AltAss Ratings (On a scale of 1 to 5 asses)


Provided endless comedic possibilities, a solid concept.


When it worked it was hillarious and when it didn't it wasn't awful enough to lose the audience completely.


Jane Lynch can just walk into a camera shot and get a laugh without saying a word.  Casting Matt Servitto as her husband was a good decision as he does a nice job matching her energy even if he wasn't always as funny.  I was very impressed with Bryan Callen as the groom to be and Alexie Gilmore doesn't do a bad job either.  Acting is definitely a strength for this picture.


The premise for the comedy was a somewhat different idea, but the comedy itself was old hat.


This is worth watching because there are several moments that are of the "laugh again later" variety even if there are some mild groaners in between.  A very solid rental for cheap thrills.
