I went to The Big Wedding with high expectations when reading the names of a stellar cast such as Robert De Niro, Robin Williams, Susan Sarandon, and Diane Keaton. The problem is I set my expectations too high believing the movie would capture the same beauty of the human spirit like My Big Fat Greek Wedding.
My Big Fat Greek Wedding had the universal appeal of falling in love and what happens when two different worlds collide whilst organizing a wedding. In comparison The Big Wedding, was trying to hard to put a spin on the modern family. I believe this movie attempted to do too much with very little time and a poor script.
As the story twists and turns with family secrets being revealed it adds the humor to what happens when everything goes wrong. I confess there were many moments where I laughed out loud. However, I left looking for more in a movie and it seemed to lack the spirit of appreciating the quirks of life.
I would recommend The Big Wedding to anyone who wants to rent a movie on a rainy Saturday sharing it with a bottle of wine and friends. But save your popcorn money for the blockbuster hits coming out this summer. I already hear Iron Man 3 calling my name!
What Blockbuster movies are you looking forward to seeing this summer?
