YOU MAY NOT KISS THE BRIDE is a charming tale of adventurous high jinx and budding romance involving an unassuming pet photographer (Annable) who is thrown head first into a series of unforeseeable events when he's forced to marry a Croatian mobster's daughter (McPhee) and spend his honeymoon at a secluded Tahitian resort where the bride is kidnapped.
The film, which was shot on location in Honolulu, Chicago and Los Angeles, has also been licensed in virtually every territory outside the U.S. and boasts an impressive supporting cast including Tia Carrere ("True Lies"), Kevin Dunn ("Luck"), Vinnie Jones ("Kill the Irishman"), Stephen Tobolowsky ("Groundhog Day") and Ken Davitian ("Borat").
