Big Wedding Movie Reviews
User reviews on Big Wedding
I was kind of excited to see this film, I wanted to see a fun comedy and the cast in this film is quite impressive (except Hatherine Heighl). Unfortunately, I was greatly disappointed with this film, it was not good at all and I definitely do not recommend seeing it in the theaters. The humor in this film did not impress me, in fact it was silly and annoying. I also did not like the story or the characters, none of them felt like real people and I could not relate to any of them. The film had horrible pacing and it felt that it was going on for hours, it was exhausting and extremely boring. There were a lot of embarrassing moments in the film but they never resulted in a laugh and I felt bad for the actors involved in this movie. Overall, this film is definitely not worth your time or money.
I did not like this film and do not recommend seeing it in the theaters. I thought the film will be good because it has so many great actors in it, however the film sucked and I definitely do not recommend seeing it in the theaters. The film was extremely annoying, stupid, not funny at all and I pretty much hated every chraracter in this movie. I could not believe how bad this film was, it was almost unbearable and I really wanted to leave couple of times. I felt bad for all of the actors that were in this film and I don’t understand why they agreed to be in this film in the first place. Overall, avoid this film like a plaque, don’t waste your time and money on it.
I gotta say that, yes, this is kind of a typical rom. cosort of movie, and if you hate romantic comedies, then you should probably stay away from this one with a 50 foot pole. That being said, I did drag my boyfriend to see it and he HATES romantic comedies but even he enjoyed this one. It's one of those movies that no matter who you are or where you come from you can totally relate to it. Just like "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" this movie is about a family that goes to extraordinary lengths to make their child's wedding go off without a hitch. The parents of the groom are divorced and when his religiously zealot birth mother visits, the divorced parents try to pretend that they are still married because, well, divorce is a sin, lol. It's pretty funny stuff (sometimes it's HILARIOUS) but I think the best scenes are those between the ex-wife played by Diane Keaton and the new wife played by Susan Sarandon. Those two KILL it.
Robert DeNiro! Diane Keaton! Susan Sarandon! Robin Williams! Amanda Seyfried! Topher Grace! And yes, even Ice Queen Kathryn Heigl! All in one movie! About a WASP wedding gone awry! Can they manage to turn into something other than the minstrel show that is the modern romantic comedy?!
Nope. They can’t. Or they won’t. I wasn’t able to tell because this movie is such a colossal waste of so much talent that to even call it a movie is kind of a stretch. It’s more of a filmed exercise in marquee names wearing designer wedding attire. They all look very nice. Beyond that, this is pure paycheck fodder for all involved.
A divorced couple (DeNiro and Keaton) pretend to be married when their adopted son’s biological mother flies in for the big affair. She’s an ultra conservative witchy poo who fails to understand why anyone would do anything that is in the slightest bit unsavory. Why she fails to recognize her giving up her child for adoption as being in the same category is beyond me.
The film spends most of its time trying to regale the audience with si. colevel jokes about family weddings, divorces, and the ever-troublesome parent-child relationship. It’s like an episode of Everybody Loves Raymond stretched into 100 minutes. Except they forgot the laughs.
This is one of those movies that has a huge mega watt star cast that just thinks that audiences will fall over themselves to go see the movie just because it has so many name stars in it. I blame "Valentine's Day" and "New Year's Eve" for this misnomer. Actually, I think we can rightly blame "Love Actually" for this trend because that was the beginning of it all, though that movie has the benefit of actually being good, lol. This one is about a big wedding (duh) and all the kooky family characters that assemble to make the day a disastrous one. It has its fun and light hearted moments but it mostly will be remembered for its large star cast. None of the actors seem particularly engaged in the story, but it's nice to see them trying (occasionally). I'm guessing this was a paycheck for most of them. This will be popular with the older crowd. Also, it's good to have Robin Williams back in a mainstream movie. He was the best.
