Wedding Crashers

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Bill Pearis
When you think of wedding music, what do you think of? Schmaltzy ballads like "Butterfly Kisses," Kool & the Gang's "Celebrate," and other annoying party anthems, or the dreaded chicken dance? Whatever comes to mind, it's probably not Death Cab for Cutie, Spoon, and Bloc Party. But these and other current indie rockers are so prevalent on the soundtrack to the raucous Owen Wilson/Vince Vaughn comedy The Wedding Crashers that it could easily be confused for one of The O.C.'s mixes. Only the most jaded of wedding DJs would play some of these songs -- certainly Death Cab's "The Sound of Settling" would be an ironic choice, as would Bloc Party's "This Modern Love" with ...

Barnes & Noble - Bill Pearis
When you think of wedding music, what do you think of? Schmaltzy ballads like "Butterfly Kisses," Kool & the Gang's "Celebrate," and other annoying party anthems, or the dreaded chicken dance? Whatever comes to mind, it's probably not Death Cab for Cutie, Spoon, and Bloc Party. But these and other current indie rockers are so prevalent on the soundtrack to the raucous Owen Wilson/Vince Vaughn comedy The Wedding Crashers that it could easily be confused for one of The O.C.'s mixes. Only the most jaded of wedding DJs would play some of these songs -- certainly Death Cab's "The Sound of Settling" would be an ironic choice, as would Bloc Party's "This Modern Love" with its refrain of "I'll pay for you anytime." Then there is "Mr. Ambulance Driver," the first new Flaming Lips song to emerge since 2002's Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots. It's the kind of catchy, twisted meditation on life and (mostly) death that we've come to expect from the Lips -- but what it's doing on the soundtrack to a lightweight summer comedy is anyone's guess. Appropriate or not, the quality here is high: "Sister Jack," Spoon's most perfect pop moment from their new Gimme Fiction; Robbers on High Street's rocking, Strokes-ish "Love Underground"; and "Aside," a gem from Canada's underrated Weakerthans. There are also a couple more typical wedding songs at the end -- a remix of the Isley Brothers' classic "Shout" and a version of "Hava Nagilah" performed by the film's stars Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn, backed by a klezmer band. Though this may never actually be played at a reception, The Wedding Crashers soundtrack would be a nice addition to anyone's registry.
All Music Guide - Heather Phares
Far from the wedding-reception favorites or laddish, caddish punk-pop and hip-hop that might be expected on the soundtrack of a movie like Wedding Crashers, the film's music actually plays like a sampler of recent trends in indie and alt-rock. Aside from Mungo Jerry's apt, cheeky "In the Summertime" and a remix of the Isley Brothers' "Shout," the soundtrack is almost painfully current: Songs like Spoon's "Sister Jack," Bloc Party's quietly epic "This Modern Love," and the Flaming Lips throwaway "Mr. Ambulance Driver" -- on which Wayne Coyne trades in his usual creaky warble for a lower, more controlled singing voice -- make the album feel like an indie rock version of Now That's What I Call Music! The Sights and the Sounds add a garage rock edge with "Circus" and "Rock 'n Roll," respectively, but the overall sensitive hipster vibe of Wedding Crashers comes from songs like the Long Winters' "Cinnamon," Rilo Kiley's "More Adventurous," and Death Cab for Cutie's "The Sound of Settling." Since one of the wedding crashers' prime macking techniques is appearing sensitive and in touch with their feelings, the soundtrack works well with the movie's portrayal of two wolves dressed in sheepish clothing, and also sounds good in its own right.
