Sadie and Ben are in love, and although Ben suggests getting married in the Caribbean, Sadie has her heart set on a wedding at the family church, St. Augustine's. Ben says sure, and they meet with the pastor, Rev. Frank. The only date open for two years is three weeks away, and Frank insists the kids go through his marriage prep course. They're to write their own vows; he also demands chastity, bugs their apartment, initiates arguments, has them care for robot twins, creates friction between Ben and her family, and raises doubts in Sadie. Desperate, Ben looks for dirt on Frank. Can he undermine Frank's authority and keep Sadie's heart? Written by

When Reverend Frank is playing the Ten Commandments quiz game with the children, he flips the "coveting" card to its answer-revealing side on the board behind him; but in the closeup of his face, it's flipped back to its answer-hiding side. In the next shot, it's back to its correct, answer-revealing position. See more »
Sadie Jones? Little Sadie Jones! How you've grown.
And now my Sadie Jones is gonna tie the knot.
I am. I'm so sorry I haven't been around for the last, like...
Yeah. I've just been trying to get my business started, and...
Oh, please. Please. You go to a liberate college, you have a bisexual rommate, you forget about God. Don't sweat it. He doesn't forget about you.

I thought it was an OK comedy. It made me chuckle at times. Sadie and Ben plan to get married, but first must pass Rev Frank's marriage course. The Rev spies on them and sets up silly tests, like carrying around plastic babies that really cry and poop. I thought that was pretty good. All these tests cause the couple to rethink the marriage an let them see are they really right for each other.
I thought Robin Williams was OK. This was his stereotypical character. His apprentice sidekick kid was just creepy. Everyone else in the film was just average.
FINAL VERDICT: If you like these sort of comedies, then check it out.
