*Disclaimer: The Monday Movie Meme for last week was all set to go until my blog hosting company went down and spent hours dealing with an attack on their servers or whatever. Here’s hoping all is well on their end, going forward.
Did a whole week just go by?! Holy moly, time flies by too fast. The theme for this week’s Monday Movie Meme can be considered the next step to the Rules of Engagement that we covered a while back.
Call it “Part 2” to an ongoing series of themes, if you will...
First comes the proposal, then wedding bells start ringing – sometimes sooner than usual: Race to the Altar.
Share on your blog or in the comments section, movies featuring weddings and/or marriages that occurred faster than you can sing “Here comes the bride.” Movies that fall into this category often have characters that get hitched soon after they first meet. Here are my selections for this week’s Race to the Altar theme.
Fools Rush In
Two strangers get married after a one-night stand leads to an unplanned pregnancy, in this entertaining romantic comedy starring Matthew Perry and Salma Hayek. In the case of these well-meaning adults, what happened in Vegas did not stay there!
A married dentist gets a second wife while visiting Las Vegas for his best friend’s bachelor party in this comedy starring Ed Helms, Heather Graham and Bradley Cooper.
A famed model marries her neighbor to avoid deportation from Britain to Somalia, in this biographical drama starring Liya Kebede and Sally Hawkins. Although the guy flirted with her on many occasions, they were not dating and his proposal was more like a business transaction than a romantic offering, resulting in one of the quickest nuptials I’ve ever seen played out in a movie.
What movies have YOU watched that feature people getting married soon after they first meet?
