Wedding Crashers Enrages Military Veterans

New movie WEDDING CRASHERS is under fire for making a mockery of prestigious military award the Purple Heart - it quips that the award guarantees adoration from the opposite sex.

The comedy features two party-loving lotharios, played by OWEN WILSON and VINCE VAUGHN, who pretend to be Purple Heart recipients in a bid to bed bridesmaids.

Now movie website New Line Cinema has been attacked by military veterans and law enforcement officials for capitalising on the joke - the site boasts a fake cut-out version of the honour, flanked by the words: "Carrying a Purple Heart in your jacket guarantees you attention, admiration and plenty of free booze."

FBI agent THOMAS COTTONE JR fumes, "I challenge the producer of that movie to go to Walter Reed Hospital and walk through the ward and see if he still wants to print out a fake Purple Heart.

"Talk to some of these people who don't have legs anymore and see how funny they think that movie is."
