The Groomsmen is a 2006 comedy film written and directed by Edward Burns. It opened in New York and Los Angeles on July 14, 2006. Filming took place at many locations on City Island, New York.

Paulie (Burns), a self-supporting writer, is making plans for his marriage to Sue (Murphy), his girlfriend who is in her 5th month of pregnancy.
