The Wedding Ringer

Synopsis: Doug Harris (Josh Gad) is a lovable but socially awkward groom-to-be with a problem: he has no best man. With less than two weeks to go until he marries the girl of his dreams (Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting), Doug is referred to Jimmy Callahan (Kevin Hart), owner and CEO of Best Man, Inc., a company that provides flattering best men for socially challenged guys in need. What ensues is a hilarious wedding charade as they try to pull off the big con, and an unexpected budding bromance between Doug and his fake best man Jimmy.

(DIALING PHONE)

(PHONE RINGING)

SETH; (ON PHONE) Hello.

Hi. Seth?

Yeah?

Hey, there, it's Doug.

Um, I'm sorry.

Doug who?

Doug Harris.

You know, Doug Harris.

"Persian Rug Doug"?

"Chili Cheese Doug"?

"SPF 60"?

(LAUGHS)

Oh, of course, man.

SPF 60,

how are you, brother?

It's been a long time.

I, uh, know we haven't

spoken in a while

but I was actually

calling because

I've actually got

some really great news.

I'm getting married, bud. Wow!

That's amazing. Congratulations.

We're very excited and, in

fact, I'm doubly excited

because I'm calling

to see if maybe

you would want

to be my best man.

(SETH CHUCKLES WEAKLY)

Wow. Um, I mean,

this is a little bit awkward.

I feel like

we're not at that level.

It feels like we don't know

each other that well. You know?

No, I don't feel that way.

What about that...

Seth, what about that

weekend in Carlsbad Caverns?

I mean, that was

the 9th grade field trip.

The whole class went.

Can I give you the dates?

Maybe you just want to look into it.

(LINE DISCONNECTS)

Are you still there, Seth?

MAN 1:
I don't know

what to say, Doug.

I mean, I didn't

invite you to my wedding.

That's okay. That's okay.

Yeah, you can't invite

everyone that you want to.

Actually, we did invite

everyone we wanted to.

(LAUGHS) We had,

like, 400 guests.

Freshman year?

Your roommate?

MAN 2:
I heard you died.

No. No, that's Len Brophy.

I'm the other one.

Truth be told, uh, you're the

first person I thought of.

Is that a yes or a no?

Hola, Eduardo.

(LINE BEEPS)

RECORDING:

'Cause I gotta feeling

(MAN LAUGHING)

You have to know that. Okay.

(CROWD LAUGHING)

I ain't lying.

Yeah. I've always been a bit

of a hopeless romantic myself.

If our true match

exists somewhere,

it's our goal in life

to find her.

But, see, Andrew's a bit

more rational than me.

Andrew always believed

that "the one"

was a farce created

by musicians and Hollywood.

Until last December.

Andrew calls my cell phone

and he says,

"Remember all that

stuff I said about"

"there being no such

thing as 'the one'?"

He said, "Well, I was wrong.

Her name is Gina Baker."

"And she doesn't

know this yet,"

"but she's going

to be my wife."

GUESTS:
Aw.

And I knew at that moment

that this Gina Baker

was the luckiest girl
