David Annable and Katharine McPhee to make the worst romantic comedy ever (but at least they'll film it in Hawaii)

Annablemcphee_lBrothers & Sisters‘ David Annable and Katharine McPhee (American Idol, The House Bunny, an album you’ve forgotten about) have been cast in a romantic comedy called Wedlocked. Allow me to quote The Hollywood Reporter‘s plot description: "Annable will play a pet photographer who gets mixed up with amobster and his daughter, who is angling for American citizenship.Things go terribly awry on their forced honeymoon."

I hope my prediction that this will be the worst romantic comedy ever is wrong, but a pet photographer, a mobster, and a mobster’s daughter who needs a green card (which means accent?) sounds like a contender. Even if Annable and McPhee are awfully cute together.

    As a writer, I wonder how this counts as reporting. Is it the Worst Ever because Kat McPhee is in it? Jealous much?

    Zakry, I’m not sure what you’re talking about.
    I thought the writer went out of her way to state that her fears about the movie had to do with terms like “pet photographer” and “mobster’s daughter”. Unless my eyes deceive me, she actually complimented the actors too.
    By the way, I agree that it sounds horrible. I mean it already sounded bad when the pet photographer got mixed up with a mobster and his daughter, but what’s the deal with her angling for American citizenship? Huh?!

  • claudenorth

    Oh boy…just what the world has been clamoring for…another Katharine McPhee movie…

  • Babs

    No, the worst is From Justin to Kelly. And The Sweetest Thing. And P.S. I Love You. And Little Black Book. And. . .I can go for hours, folks.

    Zarky, as a writer I would imagine this would count as reporting because the assignment probably came with a sticky note from an editor saying something like “Here’s a eighteen word blurb from another news rag, give us a 1000-word news item on something which no additional information exists within the next fifteen minutes or die trying”. Don’t blame the writer for the assignment they’re given.
    I have to admit the blurb from Hollywood Reporter sounds incredibly cringe-worthy. I hope Annable doesn’t get axed from Bros & Sis; if this is the quality of work attempting to woo him away from telly then I’d vote for him to keep his day job.

    I can only hope that it will be awesomely bad instead of excruciatingly bad. Because I will probably have to see it out of loyalty to Dave Annable, and I would prefer to hate myself as little as possible afterward.

    this is made-for-tv, right? it seems like an abc family type of thing.

  • Katie

    You’re still talking about her 3 years after she was Idol, so she must be doing something write

  • Katie

    lol, write. I meant right haha

  • to Katie

    just b/c ppl talk about you, doesn’t mean it’s a good thing. don’t you think kat mcphee would rather have a career like kelly clarkson or carrie underwood or jennifer hudson, instead of the random crap she’s currently doing?

  • whatcha

    I’m with ‘jen’. It’s made for cable, right?
    It sounds so horribly, excruciatingly bad–PET photographer? green card (you’re right, it’s gotta mean an accent)–I’ll watch. Maybe it’ll be so bad it’s good?

    Well how you can call a film the “worst Romantic comedy ever” based on a 20 word description you didn’t write is bizarre to me. Besides the others mentioned here do I dare to talk about the last 2 Mandy Moore films? Besides there are some films that if you describe them in 20 words like “Prissy sorority girl goes to big eastern school to follow boyfriend who dumped her” or “Nerd hires detective to find his old girlfriend who loves a football player and the detective falls for her too” they sound pretty lame as well. But you ended up with Legally Blonde and Something About Mary. Maybe this will suck and maybe it won’t. But you better wait for a script and maybe a few clips before you talk about “worst ro co ever”. But at least you got some hits to your site with that ridiculous headline. So for that I guess it worked.

    I can’t wait to see this, love both of these actors! I foresee some great on-screen chemistry between Dave and Kat.
