Kate Ellis (Debra Messing) is looking for the right man, NOW.
In the tradition of such comedies as Four Weddings and a Funeral, My Best Friend's Wedding and My Big Fat Greek Wedding, The Wedding Date is a funny, touching and utterly romantic look at love, marriage, family and the sexy surprises life holds in store.
The position comes with a few requirements: willingness to travel, keen social skills, good looks, suave demeanor, sharp mind.....and a tux. The qualified candidate should also have the ability to make ex-boyfriends jealous, to turn heads whenever entering a room and to reduce any woman within eye - and earshot to a weak-kneed, besotted admirer.
Kate wouldn't be so urgently in need were it not for her spoiled, gets-everything-she-wants half-sister's wedding where the best man happens to be Kat's handsome ex-boyfriend. What's worse, the currently single Kat has to schelp all the way from New York - where she has made her life - to London, where her wildly dysfunctional family lives. That's one long, thankless trip to take solo.
And since the wedding is happening, oh, next weekend, Kat does what any enterprising single woman would do - she tracks down and hires a professional. So what if her solution crosses a few morally dubious lines plus costs her a tidy six thousand bucks? And what if her escort happens to be.....well, an escort? Desperate times call for desperate measures.
Rather than face the ridicle of her family and in order to ahow up her ex-fiance she resorts to the Yellow Pages to find a last minute escort, Nick. His dashing good looks and quick-witted charm may win over the family, but will they win over Kat?
More of a drama than a comedy, with plenty of twists and 'just deserves' all round. Proving that love doesn't come cheap...but there is definitely someone for everyone.
