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.

This is a terrible over-the-top-unfunny script that even the cast of Robert DeNiro, Diane Keaton and Susan Sarandon and Katherine Heigl could not save. I was so looking forward to this, but sadly, the thin script by Justin Zackham tried too hard and wound up being a sad reminder that Nora Ephron, indeed, has passed away. I was encouraged that the beginning had me laughing out loud in the first five minutes, only to watch it sink....and sink.... Diane Keaton and Susan Sarandon were truly funny, given what they had to work with. Katherine Heigl did a good job with her lot, as well. And I believe that Robert DeNiro, who can play anything, did well with what he had signed on for- which was an embarrassingly ridiculous parody-of-himself that made me wonder if he felt, - like I think Pacino and Walken must feel of their roles in "Stand Up Guys" a few months back - "I don't need to prove anything anymore. I'll just take the money and have fun." Only problem is, the moviegoers, do not. 2 stars

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.

We wanted to see something funny and we got it! The entire cast was excellent - very familiar faces and the storyline and twists were great. An honest look at life, love & relationships that wasn't all Hollywood. And I swear Robert DeNiro gets better and better looking with age :)

Horrible. Can't believe the cast agreed to make this movie. It is embarrasing that it is so bad. They should all be ashamed of themselves. What a waste of great talent.
