No one is bad in The Big Wedding, but no one is remotely believable, either.

Most of this huge-cast extravaganza is a botched farce. When that doesn't work, it turns sentimental. The presence of liked and familiar...

Forced, formulaic and never believable. It's a particularly unholy combination.

The Big Wedding

This is a good "Adult," comedy. The dialogue is catchy and fast paced. The situations are adult, funny, and entertaining. The polish and professionalism of the actors is great. There are many...

It was OK

My Bid Wedding - Good Chick Flick

By ojFandango
As my husband would say... it's a chick flick. My Mom, 88, my Sister, 55, and me, 65, all loved the humor from all of the well known actors. It's not a 'think deep' movie.. just a go and have some...

Good for a fun movie
