Wedding Crashers

Historical Circuit: Wedding Crashers (2005)

Who hasn’t wanted to crash a wedding? Free food, open bar, music of questionable quality. What’s not to like? The comedy Wedding Crashers took that idea and turned it into one of the top 10 highest grossing films of 2005. Raunchy and irreverent, the Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn match up is a completely sexist, […]
