For those of you who love a movie that is not inhibited and not hung up on being politically correct "The Big Wedding" is perfect. The movie is filled with great situations and hilarious zingers that will have you laughing until the tears run down your cheeks from the first scene until the last. It weaves a great story about a preposterous situation involving 2 1/2 families and a wedding. THe cast of academy award winners showed tht they knew how to excell in a comedy and provide great acting in any venue.

ok seriously...I went to see this when there was nothing else playing during early hours and needed to get a movie in fast. based on the terrible reviews and what the movie seemed to be I thought it was going to be a bad idea, but not at all. This movie is HILARIOUS. it's just over the top raunchy funny stupid. it's almost kind of like that's my boy, but less crazier, and it's basically this whole family/wedding situation coupled with tons of awkward, crazy situations, moments, etc...the entire movie is just full of HUMOR and comedy. It's funny to see older people so raunchy and vulgar...deniro keaton and everyone did a really good job. It's a REALLY funny over the top movie. and yes it's very vulgar but hilariously too.. yes it was kind of cheesy stupid at times and esp in the end, but it was still funny and entertaining. definitely go to check it out...it's not bad at all...

Very entertaining movie for adults.
I enjoyed it as it kept you interested every inch of the way.
A great cast and it was filmed in a beautiful location. (Greenwich, Ct).
Each character had their own entertaining personality. The story was less predictable then I imagined. I read some so-so ratings but decided to see it for my self , and I was glad I did.
This is the first DeNero character that I enjoyed in a long time. Go see it for yourself.

Disappointed, such a wonderful cast, thought the movie would be great, but it was just fair. It had its moments, some were funny, some thoughtful, and some predictable.

Great cast, great premise. Screenplay has structural problems and how could a good director let it go to filming with the script writing as-is. Should have knocked one out of the ballpark, but got overly cutesy.
I would watch on rental DVD or cable but not worth the price of theatre tickets.
1 star. BIG DISAPPOINTMENT!!!
