Still shot from the movie: License to Wed.

Get Our Full Review


Reverend Frank (Robin Williams) will only give engaged couple Sadie Jones and Ben Murphy (Mandy Moore and John Krasinski) license to wed after they have taken his marriage preparation course. But the anticipated challenges of married life pale in comparison to the rigorous and ridiculous tasks the two must accomplish to pass his test.

Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in License to Wed...

Although he is a man of the cloth, Rev. Frank’s approach to marriage counseling includes the frequent use of slang terms for anatomy and sexual activity as well as irreverent portrayals of priestly duties such as prayer and teaching youth. While there is no visual activity, sexual discussions also happen between other characters. Alcohol consumption, sometimes to the point of drunkenness, and a casual drug reference are part of the script, along with some slapstick portrayals of a man being punched in the nose, another being hit in the face with a ball and an elderly man in a wheelchair running into a car. When the pair’s mechanical babies defecate, urinate and have a meltdown in a department store, Ben loses control, forcefully shaking the baby and smashing it against a counter until it loses it’s head. Family members and the engaged couple are also pushed to fight on several occasions. Numerous terms of Deity, vulgarities and a bleeped sexual expletive are also used.
