The Wedding Crashers Scene You Should Never Watch With Your Partner

For 2005's "Wedding Crashers," comedic giants Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn teamed up to make one of the most highly regarded comedies of the '00s. The laugh-fest from New Line Cinema raked in more than $280 million worldwide (via The Numbers) and became the fifth highest-grossing movie of the year. While it was panned by critics like Roger Ebert, who said it was "all runway with no take-off," audiences flocked to the theater to watch the raunchy comedy that pulled no punches. "Wedding Crashers" follows John Beckwith (Owen Wilson) and Jeremy Grey (Vince Vaughn), a pair of committed womanizers who sneak into weddings to take advantage of the fact romance is in the air. They find themselves at odds when John meets and falls for a woman he meets.

While the film is outlandish, it does feature the romantic premise of two men maturing to find the loves of their lives throughout wedding season. However, a few scenes push the envelope of a romantic comedy, and there's one in particular you should never watch with your partner.

Avoid the scene between John and Kathleen

At the final wedding of the season, the white whale of weddings, as Jeremy describes, John develops feelings for Claire Cleary (Rachel McAdams). Breaking their own rules, the pair accompanies the family beyond the safety of the wedding to their home, where they both find trouble. While Jeremy deals with a "stage five clinger" in Claire's sister, Gloria (Isla Fisher), John is pursued by Claire's mother, Kathleen (Jane Seymour). Mrs. Cleary pulls the most aggressive advance employed by anyone in the movie by stripping in front of John with two demands: calling her Kitty Cat and feeling her brand new breasts. Despite John's clear discomfort, she is adamant that he engage before smacking him and calling him a pervert.

While the scene was followed up with the iconic argument between the two protagonists, this scene can cause discomfort in so many ways. Neither the conversation about consent nor the reaction of someone being pursued by their love interest's parent make for comfortable conversations with one's partner and it's best to avoid a dialogue about either. We wonder if the sequel, "Wedding Crashers 2," will have a similar crazy scene.
