The Boondock Saints of Wedding Comedies
According to the IMDB page Best Men is up 5% in popularity this week (presumably from me searching for it), and the "Goofs" page simply reads, "the movie." This star packed (and I assume direct-to-DVD) smash hit gives you an idea of how messed up the 90's really were. Dean Cain and Andy Dick received top billing over Drew Barrymore and Luke Wilson. Best Men came out right after Lois & Clark ended, in the midst of Newsradio's run, the year before The Wedding Singer and Rushmore. Yes, 1997 was a pivotal year for 4 out of 5 people in this movie. And the director also did Half Baked, Billy Madison, and worked with NWA and is married to Beastie Boy Mike D. Best Men has so much going for it. Somebody watch it and let me know if it's any good.
