In the new comedy Wedding Crashers, two divorce mediators and longtime friends get their kicks by inviting themselves to other people's weddings. They scarf down hors d'oeuvres, drink from the open bar, tear up the dance floor and compete to meet -- and bed -- bodacious bridesmaids and other single women. For singles who have their minds on something more meaningful than a roll in the hay, professional matchmakers, wedding professionals and relationship experts agree, weddings can be the ideal place to meet someone special.

Sometime this fall, five couples will venture to a faraway romantic resort and spend two weeks voraciously dating attractive, single men and women while cameras tape their every move. Will David get hot and heavy with the blonde, silicone-enhanced Betsy and dump his girlfriend? Will Susan go skinny-dipping with studly Sam from Seattle and decide to run off with him? Viewers can tune in to "Temptations" in January to watch real-life dating escapades like these and find out. You won't see it on the Playboy Channel, however.

Love Actually oozes its sappy message from the opening voice-over narration: "General opinion's starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed -- but I don't see that -- seems to me that love is everywhere. Often it's not particularly dignified or newsworthy -- but it's always there -- fathers & sons, mothers & daughters, husbands & wives, friends & strangers. If you look for it, I've got a sneaking suspicion that love is actually all around." Coming from first-time writer-director Richard Curtis, this is inexcusably coy: If anyone should know that the mass audience has been lapping love stuff up it should be the guy who provided the scripts for Four Weddings and a Funeral, Bridget Jones's Diary and Notting Hill.

At Read and Cathedral streets in Mount Vernon lies what historic preservationist Jamie Hunt calls "the historic and spiritual intersection of royal romances in Baltimore." On one side sits the church where Wallis Warfield was christened. (King Edward VIII was forced to give up the British throne to marry the twice-divorced Baltimore native.) The other side of the street boasts the townhouse where Elizabeth "Betsy" Bonaparte died in bitter seclusion after Napoleon ended her marriage to his younger brother, French naval officer Jerome Bonaparte.

IT WAS billed as a Valentine's Day affair, a love connection. A space satellite hooking up with a celestial body near Mars on Monday, Feb. 14. Indeed, love abounded when the Near Earth Asteroid Rendezvous (NEAR) successfully orbited the asteroid Eros, named for the Greek god of love. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration needed a mission it could love after some recent failures near the Red Planet. The $165 million Mars Polar Lander disappeared as it approached the planet in early December.

Rain Pryor was getting divorced and looking for change nearly two years ago, when she left LA for Baltimore, home to two good friends. "Best move I ever made," the Charles Village resident and daughter of the late comedian Richard Pryor says today. Why is Charm City such a good fit for the actress, comedian, author and singer (who, by the way, will give a jazz cabaret performance to benefit the Maryland Center for Multiple Sclerosis at the Hippodrome on Friday)? Demographics? Pryor also does a one-woman show, Fried Chicken and Latkes, that's all about being Jewish and black, and Baltimore has lots of both cultures, if not lots of double dippers.

Ghostwalk By Rebecca Stott The New Yorkers By Cathleen Schine Farrar Straus Giroux/Sarah Crichton Books / 304 pages / $24 The world is composed of cat people and dog people and they know who they are. The urban landscape is rife with dog owners and their pets; dogs often appear to be the mortar that keeps an otherwise alienated and aloof citizenry connected. In Cathleen Schine's sharp, poignant and witty new novel, one might well ask, "Who let the dogs out?" On a tidy and tony little block off Central Park, in the great dog-eat-dog world of uptown Manhattan, people move in and out of their urban anomie led by their pooches, who seem to have a far keener sense of the necessity for human (and canine)
