Reese Witherspoon, Will Ferrell Star in Wedding Disaster Movie

In a new trailer, chaos ensues as the pair face off for control of a double-booked resort

Save the date.

The trailer for a new comedy starring Reese Witherspoon and Will Ferrell released on Tuesday, and features the pair waging wedding war at a remote resort off the Carolina coast. You’re Cordially Invited captures the chaos that ensues when Witherspoon’s character discovers that the venue booked for her sister (played by Meredith Hagner) has been double-booked by another bride (Geraldine Viswanathan) and her father (Ferrell).

“Let’s get something straight,” Ferrell threatens Witherspoon in the clip. “If I look out on that dock, and that bride’s not my baby girl, that bride’s going in the fucking lake. Splish, splash, bitch. Taking a bath.”

Witherspoon shoots back: “I’m gonna kick your ass, and it’s going to be embarrassing because you’re big, and I’m little.”


Elsewhere in the trailer, Ferrell is seen wrestling a live alligator in bed and running down a hall from what seems to be enraged wedding guests. Nicholas Stoller, who directed Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Get Him to the Greek, and Neighbors (a film with a similar not-my-turf storyline), will helm the film, which is slated for release via Amazon Prime Video on Jan. 30, 2025.

Witherspoon is also set to executive produce a prequel to Legally Blonde, the early 2000s film that shot her to fame and cemented her in pop culture. Titled Elle, the series will also debut on Amazon and take viewers through the titular character’s high school years before viewers met her as a sorority student turned Harvard Law School graduate.
