The Big Wedding

It's never too late to start acting like a family.


The Big Wedding
This film once again illustrates that good actors also need to eat. Based on a better French film, it revolves around a complex family who come together for the wedding of an adopted son. His adoptive parents are long divorced, but since his biological mother will be attending, and is very religious, he asks his adoptive parents to pretend to still be married. They agreed, and things go downhill from there.

90 minutes.
No persons under 13 (Language, Sex, Nudity).

What the Critics say

ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconThe Big Wedding feels like nothing more ambitious than a big screen sit-com. It's tired and dated with too few laughs to justify the stultifying attempts at drama and the impossible-to-swallow plot contortions.

C. Fuchs quote iconPerhaps the funeral version would have been the wiser choice.

Tomatometer quote iconThe Big Wedding's all-star cast is stranded in a contrived, strained plot that features broad stabs at humor but few laughs.
