I don't know exactly how it's all going to work, but the commercials for the show "The Real Wedding Crashers" concern me a bit.

The commercials make a point of showing shocked expressions on people's faces. They also tell us that the show has the same creators as Punk'd. All this plus the title makes me think that the show will involve people attending weddings/receptions they aren't invited to, and likely drawing some attention to themselves or doing something to leave people shocked/amazed/confused/etc.

If this is the case, they are making an incredibly dumb mistake. I mean, who exactly was it that has this idea to purposely and secretly alter an event that is held in such high regard by people - usually the bride in particular. I mean really, this show seems to be advocating ruining young women's dreams for your own pleasure. As it is, brides to be are already freaking out over details like the color of the waitstaff's buttons or the relative drip rate of the candles. I'm sure they won't mind uninvited guests changing the entire course of the evening. Is Ashton Kutcher behind this?

Now sure, some brides, etc. don't care that much to a certain point, and by the end of the reception they might not care at all, but I don't think it's ridiculous to think that doing something like that is going to really upset some people. What's the next step in this process? Handing new mothers the wrong baby just after delivery but not telling them til a week later? Hilarious!

Maybe this show will be different than my current understanding, but if not, I expect lawsuits and crying brides.

That sounds like a terrible thing. At least Kutcher presumably knows the people he punks. I doubt even he would mess with a wedding.

Regarding the baby thing - I've said it before, and I'll say it again. Don't give them any ideas.

There is a chance that the crashers act perfectly normal and the "shocked" faces are people being told after the fact that their wedding was crashed. (They could be shocked because the "crashing" was so uneventful they wouldn't have thought that in a million years.)

Unless of course it's a Fox show, in which case the crashers will knock the cake over and fondle the bride.

Oh and Ashton Kutcher will serve as one of the show's executive producers.

So yes he is behind it and yes he would "mess with a wedding".

Also it's on NBC.

That changes things a little bit but not much. At a minimum the parents should probably be in on it as well. Of course I guess it depends on how bad "it" really is. If "it" is pretty bad, then other interested parties better be informed. If "it" is pretty minor, then the show is going to be lame. I just don't see how this will work. Or at least it shouldn't in my world.

The bride and groom are the ONLY TWO that know. How else can you have a hidden camera show and have it work? The more people that know, the easier it would be to figure it out and then it really would be "lame". Trust me, it's a blast!

Well see my Wifes parents and My parents put a lot of time and effort into our wedding (not to mention money, but I'm assuming part of the deal is getting the wedding paid for)

Not only that it's a big/special day for them too.

It would be like going to the birth of a baby and telling all the the parents' close family and friends that there was something wrong with the baby, just to get a reaction, and then arguing it's "o.k." because the parents were in on the joke.

The wedding thing is borderline reprehensible without at least the Brides knowledge, but it's not "ok" just because the bride and groom are in on it.

Again I've never seen it so I don't want to jump to the conclusion the whole point is to do something to totally ruin the evening. On the other hand it couldn't be a TV show if it was "lets see if these two guys can go incognito the whole evening."

It's not like we're some prudes that can't take a mean practical joke here. Jon has given anyone carte blanc to drive into a puddle next to him causing it to splash him, just because it's classically clichd humor.

There are just a couple events in life you don't mess with.

I guess it depends too if it's the wedding or the reception. Crashing the wedding would most likely be more reprehensible, but receptions tend to have alcohol and in my experience alcohol and pratical jokes generally don't mix well if someone decides the joke wasn't funny.

I'm assuming it's the reception.

Maybe like the real wedding crashers (ie the movie) it's just guys going under cover to hook up with girls and the shocked looks are just people finding out how slutty their daughter/niece/friend is.

I feel really badly for you people's social lives. It's too bad that some people neglect to have a sense of humor. Weddings have become monotonous. Go to the ceremony...go to the reception...watch the bride and groom cut the cake...try to catch the garter...dance a bit...go through the motions and go home and forget about it. What's wrong with changing that boring format up a bit and giving more people than just the bride and groom a wedding to remember and talk about for years to come? Come on people, lighten up! That's the problem with people today, you are more concerned with what the wedding should be like and not taking in to consideration what the only two people that matter want for THEIR wedding, the bride and groom! You have to remember, it's THEIR wedding and not yours! Why can't you enjoy something even though it's not exactly how you may have wanted to have your wedding? Before we got married, everyone was quick to tell us to remember to do what we want and not worry about what anyone else wants. That's exactly what we did and we don't regret a thing!

I have no problem with the show's concept, except for the fact that it will be ridiculously boring.

Crashed is sweet for loving Real Wedding Crashers that much. I mean, has this show even been on yet? And he LOVES it. I bet he laughs out loud every time he sees the commercial, as he devours his Swanson Salisbury Steak. More power to you, man. You've got to be passionate about something, so it might as well be Real Wedding Crashers. I hope he/she gets involved in the rest of the site.

WOW.... I can't believe everything I just read. I find it hard to believe that their are this many sour-puss' out there. It's a show! A funny show at that. There is a reason reality shows are the hottest thing right now....... think about it. Who doesn't love candida camera, funniest home videos, etc. It's comedy, and just like "crashed" said........ the bride and groom are in on it. It's their wedding reflecting their personalities. If you don't like it..... change the channel. Go watch the tech channel or something you think is entertaining. I can't wait to see the shows...... I only hope I get to be a part in something like this....

Wow. I don't check this for a day or two and it explodes with action! I might have to write more blogs about upcoming shows.

Anyhow, Crashed, if you've come back to read any more of this, thanks for visiting this site AND commenting! Also, thanks for the inside information (if it's true.) Feel free to give us more of that any time you'd like.

Also, thanks to devon, though you brought no insider knowledge that I'm aware of. I can only assume you're Devon White. If so, thanks also for your work on my fantasy baseball teams in the early to mid 90's.

Now, as I stated in the original blog, I wasn't sure what the show was exactly about, I only guessed. (I also didn't know Crashed liked Salisbury steak. Micah must have guessed at that, but that's beside the point.)

This new information certainly does shed some new light on it. It takes away the main problem I had with the concept I was working from. That problem, of course, being an upset bride/groom. Mostly bride.

Crashed, you bring up a good point, the bride and the groom's experience really is the main concern of a wedding, for the most part. Personally, I'm a fan of creating a unique twist to personalize a wedding. (Actually, our very own junior staffer Scott was quite the wedding personalizer when he got married.) I think others brought up good points, too, such as other people being emotionally and financially invested in the process. (Of course, financial support doesn't really give them ownership, especially if it's done under the premise of it being a gift or even a loan or any agreement where they don't claim ownership and it's agreed upon that way.)

I guess with any practical joke there is room for people to feel taken advantage of or offended. To a certain point that's a risk you can't avoid, but like Alex pointed out, completely disregarding everyone's feelings just for your own fun isn't exactly a great way to go through life.

So, in conclusion, I could see possibilities for great fun (believe it or not, we at nutcan.com are not a bunch of wet blankets - we actually do enjoy humor) or for great mishaps.
I'm interested to see how things go, and I'll try to reserve most of my opinions til then. For now, I'll just say that I hope everyone involved is careful. Also, it better be funny now that we've invested this much time into it!

I must say, NutCan must be growing if we can garner the responses from a national TV insider. I'm pretty proud of that. First there are the pregnant ladies looking for pudding pops, then we offend some local athlete to the point of possible lawsuit, and now this? Quick, someone write an article about someone really cool. Maybe they will visit too!

Unless you actually have been part of one of these shows you really don't know what you are talking about. Crashed seemed like he was but who knows and he isn't coming clean about it so from someone who does know and who actually participated in the real wedding crashers, Yes the bride and groom are in on it and yes it is what they wanted , sure there were people who were upset and many of us who thought it was great, it will definately be a wedding that all will remember. Isn't that what you really want for your wedding??

You're right. No morons showed up at my wedding to do something that would have upset my parents and grandparents, and I don't really even remember what happened that day.

Sometimes I see my wedding ring on my hand and I don't even know what it is. It usually takes a few minutes for it to all come back to me.

Look, it's not like this is the greatest injustice the world has ever known. It's just that a lot of people put a lot of time and effort into those few hours going off without a hitch. The fact that the Bride and Groom don't respect what everyone did for them and give their blessing doesn't make it 100% kosher.

On top of all of that I feel like as a society we should be beyond the "LOLZ!!111 I pranked you!!!1!!!!111" TV shows.

Jeremy you are right if the parents and grandparents would have paid for it then I could see them getting upset, but since in this case the Bride and Groom paid for everything with no help from anyone then they have the right to plan whatever they want and have a good time doing it. People need to have fun and not take everything so seriously.

Well, since I assume either way there is money involved in "doing the show" where the "original" money came from isn't really the concern. Who put time in, or who wants to see things go perfectly is the concern. (Unless of course the parents pay for everything, the kids give their blessing to ruin it, and then pocket the money themselves. But, that would be a whole level of ungratefulness outside the realm of this show.)

Again, it isn't that huge of a deal, there are bigger issues in the world. It just doesn't seem very tasteful. There's a difference in playing a couple jokes or having some laughs at your reception and calling a fake team of cops in to pretend one of your guests did something illegal.

I agree there are more important things going on in the world, but it frustrates me when people talk about things that they really don't know about and who cares anyway.
If marriage was so sacred then there woudn't be so much divorce in the world, maybe, if people would lighten up and try to have some fun then there would be less divorce and more happy couples in the world.

Nothing against you, you have a right to your own opinion, and the right not to watch however it will be much better than watching how much weight the next fat celebrity loses or who flavor flav picks as his next woman.

It's just sad that it has come to using Flavor Flav deciding which skank he's going to shack up with for the month as the measuring stick by which other things are judged.

Well marriage is going down the tubes and it wont be the most morally devoid show on television......what are we waiting for!?!

I, for one, detest reality tv. Tv was designed to take the reality out of... well, reality. I don't care for weddings, fat celebrities, feuding celebrities, pranking celebrities, Ashton, home fix-it shows, etc. Show me something that couldn't really happen normally.

Although it does raise some interesting discussion, I will not watch this show (I don't watch much anyway)

You guys are talking like I have this show and the Holocaust ranked "side by side." Like Jon said, it'll be worth checking out just because we've talked about it so much.

Carl - Remember that time you were asked on the news how you felt about Clinton and Monica and you had a long, eloquent, answer basically about how you didn't care as long as he got done what he needed to. Then they edited it down to you just saying "I don't care?" Good times. Is that what you were talking about?

Ok, since The Boss is here too, I'll tell you that I indeed was on of the six couples to be chosen. I am hesitant about divunging any telling info on the show with the exception of what is already known about the show. I want to make sure its a surprise for everyone except the people that were there. Everything The Boss said is correct and accurate. Its funny to hear from someone else that has gone through the same thing and knowing only six couples in the nation were chosen. Wow, two of the six are in your forum and leaving comments! I think I can speak for the both of us, we aren't sure when our individual episodes will air (they aren't even necessarily in the same order they were taped). In fact, they just moved the start date for the series back from April 1 until "Late April" according to the NBC website.

By the way, back to a couple speculations from earlier, I am not a big Salisbury Steak fan and not a Switchfoot fan in the slightest...

Sometimes you just know. Like a show about watching paint dry. Not going to be a hit. The only way this show could be successful is if there is alcohol involved. And in that case I would be talking successful as in COPS successful. I'm not really sure who watches that show, but it was (is?) on the air for quite awhile. And yes I have been drinking myself, which is the only thing that makes this comment worthwhile. In fact, the existence of this blog is all the more reason NOT to watch the show because I'm fairly certain someone else will and then they can tell me if it was good or not. And I, for one, have my money on not. I hope Crashed and The Boss had a great time on the show. I for one would gladly love to crash either of your weddings. Maybe on my new show where only the parents are in on it. It could be the sequel to Real Wedding Crashers, "Real Wedding Crashers II: Parents' Revenge". Hilarious!

Wow. First Crashed, then The Boss. (Is My Boss in on this too?) I can only assume that The Boss is Bruce Springstein. Thanks for taking the time to stop in Bruce! Though you never helped me with my fantasy baseball team.

If anyone needs a reason to like reality tv it's that at least the "stars" of the shows will come and talk about it on a lowly blog. Zach Braff has never once left a comment on here that I know of.

Like Jeremy said, feel free to tell us stuff along the way as you feel appropriate. But don't break any confidentiality contract if you have one. I don't want Ashton and his buddies to come after you or any of us. The last thing we need is Wilmer Valderrama coming and seducing everyone with his ambiguously ethnic sexy powers.

I do enjoy reading all of this. I got to work on the show and I'll say that it was very fun. Some of the stunts and pranks that were pulled off were very, very funny. I am on the boat with most of you all. I enjoy scripted really smart fun comedies and dramas on TV. I would be lying if I didn't confess to my guilty pleasures of reality shows. Who hasn't watched a train wreck of Sweet 16 or Flavor of Love? Now while, Wedding Crashers is a bit more high concept, I'll say that it is what it is. It is just a fun show. The couples that worked on the show were all great with wonderful friends and great senses of humors. I hope you all do get to check it out. Hate it, Love it, it will be airing and I promise, its damn funny.

Sweet 16 is that show where the girls that are turning 16 get their parents to throw them huge partys and act like spoiled bitches for 30 mins. It's what south park parodied in the episode where Satan came to earth and threw a party. I can't remember what circumstances led me to watching, but I've seen it once or twice and wept for humanity each time.

I couldn't be made to watch Flavor Of Love if I was being tortured to do so.

I'm not sure I really believe neither of you had heard of those shows. Maybe you didn't know what "Sweet 16" was by the title, but the show is referenced all the time and caused quite the "stir" when it first came on.

It couldn't be a better commentary of why the world hates America if they tried. (Since a lot of the world thinks we're all like that.) It almost makes me hate America.

I think I did flip to Sweet 16 for about .1 seconds once. And I'll assume that Flavor of Love is the show with Flavor Flav, which I may have also watched .1 seconds of once. For the most part though I avoid VH1 and MTV like the plague. Because that's what they are. Seriously. No good comes from them.

Just because you have a TV and cable doesn't mean you need to watch every crappy show. Of the 100 channels I have, I probably switch to between 10 and 15 of them regularly, and half of them I've probably never watched.

I clicked on this blog because I thought it was about that new show that's coming out called The Real Wedding Crashers. Although there was a touch of that subject in here at first, it seems more like a blog about any show but that! Since I thought this blog was about that show I think it's only right to leave a comment about what I think about it... I think that show is going to be freakin' hilarious! Come on, pulling pranks at a wedding! What a great way to make those things fun to go to again for people besides the bride and groom! And I bet the people that were actually there will absolutely remember it better than their Aunt Cindy's wedding! I've seen the commercials and I can't wait! Hahaha...genious!

Yeah, I was thinking basically the same thing, not about the alcohol, but about the constant shill-job everyone seems to be doing for this show.

Did Kutcher round up a mass of people to do a blanketing of positive show comments on blogs? Or is it just him visiting under different names.

Anyway, there's really not much new stuff to talk about regarding the show, except for that they included on the commercials "don't worry, the bride and groom are in on it." Which is funny because we sort of had a "scoop".
Anyhow, the commercials actually let us in more on what the show really is. Which, by the way, appears to be not at all about "crashing" a wedding, but just pulling a prank on people with a wedding as the backdrop. So, basically they are trying to piggyback off of a movie that wasn't that much about wedding crashing to begin with, to promote a show which has even less to do with crashing a wedding.
Don't get me wrong, it could be a good show. Maybe a great one. Or it could suck, I don't know. But the title is inaccurate at best. It's just punk'd at a different venue with less famous people.

Also, apparently the script they made for these pro-show bloggers mandates that people talk about how it makes it fun and memorable for everyone. I'm confused, is there that much of a fun shortage at weddings these days? Or a memory shortage? Maybe I'm a sucker, but I enjoy most weddings and rarely forget anything important that happens. I mean, I get that sometimes you "have" to go to a wedding for people you barely know, but, so what, you can still have a good time. (Again, I'm not saying that these are reasons pranks shouldn't be pulled, frankly I don't really care that much about whether you prank people or not. I'm just confused, because I didn't know fun and memories were in such short supply these days at weddings.)

Also we have gotten hits from an NBC Universal IP address. emoticon

For what it's worth Crashed, Doubled Over In Laughter, and Confused are all the same person, which makes me confused since "Confused" definitely sounds like a person who "just got here." emoticon

So the real question is how much is "Crashed" getting paid to be so in love with a show they've never seen? emoticon

Just wanted to put my 2 cents in... Just to let you know Jon I am not Bruce Springstein not even male.
So from the looks of it I guess I am the only one who actually was on the show, although not one of the main characters just an invited guest, with very close ties to the Bride and Groom. As soon as the show airs maybe I can give you a little insight to the inside scoop, although I have to check my confidentiality agreement. I see that the NBC website has a new commercial and interviews with some of the couples, I think even if I wasn't there I probably would watch since I have to admit I watch Punk'd as well, not proud of it but I do like practical jokes.

Although I can't be entirely sure you're not just making it all up. (Honestly, when did people start lying on the internet!?) Anyway, I'm about 80% certain you're telling the truth. 15% says you're a kutcher/nbc operative, 4% you're ralph nader, and 1% you're either Tony Danza or Judith Light.

Watching some of the preview clips on YouTube, the show does indeed look extremely lame. So regardless of the moral/ethical dilemma of crashing a holy union of a man and a woman, the show looks like it kinda sucks. Well, at least I'm not interested.

Punk'd was more of a good social experiment than it was funny or entertaining. You got to find out what people were like when the chips are down. The results were rarely good: people lied to cops, threw their friends to the wolves, ect.

This show doesn't seem like it will have even that same sort of potential, since there's many other people around.

Also if the bride or groom said "We're crashing our own wedding" one more time I think I may have lost it. Even the people doing the pranks were invited, so the title is nonsensical to begin with.

It is pretty hard to "crash" your own wedding. Although now that I think about it, technically speaking, I did not in fact get an invitation in the mail to my wedding.
