Wedding Wars is a 2006 LGBT romantic comedy film about gay marriage, but also family and politics. It handles a very sensitive emotional issue both lightly and seriously. It stars John Stamos as the lead character, wedding planner Shel, Eric Dane as his brother, James Brolin as the Governor of Maine, Bonnie Somerville as the Governor’s daughter, a gay marriage supporter, and Sean Maher as Ted, boyfriend of Shel (Stamos). It premiered on Monday, December 11, 2006 on the A&E Network.
It was well-received by gay audiences and Stamos appeared on the cover of The Advocate to promote the film. Although it is not the first television movie to have gay themes, it is the first about gay marriage.

I watched this movie on the DVD, and I found this movie quite hilarious, I like the way they portrayed a serious issue (equality on marriage) in a humorical kind of way.
Quote I like in the movie:
But you hate camping! It will be cold, and there’ll be bug, and Heath Ledger won’t come and cuddle with you.
