Lizzy Caplan, Alison Brie, and Martin Starr to appear in 'Save the Date.' No need for reminders, we're already there!

Could wedding comedies, once and for all, be making a turnaround? For so long it felt like for every delightful  Muriel’s Wedding or Four Weddings and a Funeral, a Bride Wars, 27 Dresses or The Wedding Date would fall and make us dread anything nuptial-related at the movies.

Now thanks to Bridesmaids, the tables have turned. Its title alone could have scared off many (too generic sounding, men won’t see it), but the fact that it was a great movie — not just a great wedding movie — turned it into a word-of-mouth hit.

So when Gilbert Films confirmed to EW that Lizzy Caplan (pictured) and Alison Brie (Community) would be starring together for an indie called Save the Date about two sisters with conflicting views on marriage, the fear of another generic wedding rom-com barely registered. Plus, you simply cannot go wrong with the combination of Brie (who has knocked it out of the park on the small screen in Community and Mad Men, but arguably had the best death/line/part in Scream 4) and Caplan (we still quote her Mean Girls character Janis Ian on a daily basis.)

Better yet, the movie will also feature Martin Starr (perhaps Party Down is catering the blessed event?), Geoffrey Arend and Mark Webber. If Hollywood keeps this up, we’ll RSVP to every wedding film that comes our way.

Are you in love with the cast of Save the Date, too, PopWatchers? Or are you still weary of any wedding comedies? Sign the guest book Let us know in the comments section below!

    This sounds good!!

  • Ace

    Ooooh, a Freaks and Geeks mini-reunion! (Lizzy Caplan and Martin Starr are both F&G alums.)

    • Cordy

      they were also both on party down for 2 years. So that was a F&G reunion if anything…

  • Brigette

    I’m down!

  • Jess

    Aaaaand I definitely was avoiding all spoilers for Scream 4 until the DVD release. Soooo, thanks for that.

    Otherwise, great news.

    • Will

      it shouldn’t have been a surprise…it’s in the frickin’ trailer

    • ac

      If you are waiting for a DVD release. you have no right to complain about spoilers of movies that are months old.

  • Ian

    Alison Brie and Lizzie Caplan together in something that ISN’T my dreams? Sweet!

  • Annie

    Another Mean Girls alum! Whatever happened to that young woman who was the lead in that movie?

    • Meg

      Rachel McBride’s doing all right. Just because she isn’t in the news on a daily basis doesn’t mean she’s disappeared off the face of the earth. Morning Glory was delightful.

      • Annie

        I was thinking about the redhead.

      • Meg


    • Nerg

      Apparently she’s just been spending a lot of time at home recently. She’s become such a recluse!

  • ac
