Follow the Rules

Last summer Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson taught us "the rules" of wedding crashing. Rule No. 2: Never use your real name. Rule No. 10: Invitations are for pussies. Rule No. 72: Never talk about the bridesmaids you're nailing; the polite term is "nailing love to." OK, maybe I made that last one up, but you get the idea. The film works thanks to its cast, including horny mom-in-law Jane Seymour and newcomer (and nutball) Isla Fisher, plus a little reliable funny thrown in by a feral Walken and a Ferrell walk-on. It's not a movie you'll love enough to marry; more like an anonymous romp in the coat room that's good for a few laughs. Wedding Crashers will be shown at 8 p.m. Tuesday at the Lakewood Theater, 1825 Abrams Parkway. Tickets are $3. Call 214-821-SHOW or visit
Tue., March 21, 8 p.m.
