Wall Street Journal movie critic Joe Morgenstern tells Scott Simon about the movie Wedding Crashers, a comedy starring Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson opening this weekend.

Wilson and Vaughn star as freewheeling lotharios (both divorce mediators, natch) who trawl matrimonial occasions for women. Christopher Walken also appears as the odd patriarch and politician. Morgenstern says Wilson and Vaughn display real chemistry onscreen and notes that the film is a "comedy of language."
