The Wedding Date

A young American woman who's been jilted (Debra Messing) hires a dashing male escort (Dermot Mulroney) to squire her to London for her stepsister's wedding and also make her ex-boyfriend jealous. Adapted from a novel by Elizabeth Young and directed by Clare Kilner (How to Deal), this romantic comedy is nicely paced but so fluffy it threatens to waft away. More Pretty Woman than American Gigolo, it reveals almost nothing about the woman or her $6,000 date prior to their meeting on the plane, and the romance between them only makes sense inside the bubble of Britain. As a result, the family situations that play out at the wedding are more engaging than the love story at the center. With Amy Adams and Peter Egan. PG-13, 90 min.
