Review: The Wedding Ringer, 2015, dir. Jeremy Garelick

The Wedding Ringer begins with a tracking shot that could almost be called “bravura.” The camera starts in a kitchen, following a dish’s journey from a prep station, to a waiter’s tray, to a crowded hall where a wedding reception is in full swing. Standing at the center of the soirée is Kevin Hart, who, no matter what disguise he dons, can never veil his obvious Kevin Hartness. In the wedding, as in the film, he’s playing a part, for which he makes a sincere toast to the gathered revelers before marching off for a private conversation with the groom, collecting payment for services rendered, and driving off into the night.” (Via Paste Magazine.)
