Call it a bro-mantic comedy: Gay party planner Shel (Stamos) is coordinating the wedding of his slightly homophobic brother, Ben (Dane), to a governor’s daughter. Until — spurred by the pol’s opposition to homosexual unions — Shel goes on strike…and inspires a nationwide gay work stoppage. (Picture everyone from hairdressers to TV-TelePrompTer writers walking off the job). Thanks to the stars’ charisma, Wedding Wars, this candy-coated TV-movie take on a hot topic, goes down easy. EXTRAS A making-of that plays more like an extra-long commercial. B
