It's a nice day for a white wedding



Bachelorparty It's June, so those are either wedding bells I hear in the air constantly or I need to cut down on the Wild Turkey shots.

Since it's been a while since we all put together a "best-of" list as a group, here's a good list idea: What were the best movies featuring weddings in the 80s?

A quick search of my usual secret resources reveals at least 30 movies in the 80s that had weddings as a significant part of the film. Here are just a couple to loosen your brain cells:

Excalibur (1981): King Arthur and Guenevere tie the knot. But that dope Lancelot has to act like a love-sick puppy and bring down the kingdom.

Bachelor Party (1984): Only in the movies does nice-guy Tom Hanks marry a sexy but whacked-out Tawny Kitaen.

Easy Money (1983): Taylor Negron and Jennifer Jason Leigh make an odd couple in what could be Rodney Dangerfield's best 80s movie.

For Keeps? (1988): Molly Ringwald gets pregnant then marries in this flick. But you have decide: Is Sixteen Candles also a wedding flick? I say yes.

Coming to America (1988): One of Eddie Murphy's finest moments. Featuring the always loveable James Earl Jones: "So you see, my son, there is a very fine line between love and nausea."

Leave a comment with your favorite wedding movies of the 80s (or your least favorite) and we'll have the official list online before the month is over.
