In The Wedding Date a brokenhearted singleton (Debra Messing) travels to London for her chilly sister’s wedding with a hot male escort in tow. Why it works: Dermot Mulroney’s stoic demeanor means you don’t enter a total sugar coma when he delivers lines like ”I’d rather fight with you than make love with anyone else.” Also, we see tush. EXTRAS Messing’s commentary reveals that the sisters’ relationship originally included even harsher dialogue, and that she liked the darker tone. The DVD, meanwhile, could’ve used some lightening up. Messing tells us that Mulroney forwent the ”modesty patch” when filming his shower scene, and that multiple takes were shot to get her reaction just right, but none appear here. At least we find out why the bachelorette guests were dressed like golfer girls gone wild: They were playing ”pub golf,” which means doing shots at nine different drinking holes. So how come Messing’s penalty-strokes-for-vomiting tutorial ended up on the cutting-room floor?
