The Big Wedding

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 BiWedding, 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?

  1. I don’t tend to go for blockbusters. I do love Robert Downey Jr, though, from his Chaplin and Less Than Zero days. In that spirit, I should see at least one of the Iron Man movies……….

  2. You know, I loved the first Iron Man. The second was just as good. I didn’t see Avengers. And now a “Three-quel”? The same, same and same again.

    I’d really like something different to hit the theatres.

  3. Personally, I am looking forward to “The Great Gatsby”, though I don’t think I’ll have the time to see it before it leaves theaters.

  4. What a shame that The Big Wedding didn’t live up to its hype. With that cast, I was sure that it’d be wonderful. But as a friend of mine taught me to say: “oh well. whatever.” Will add it to the Netflix queue for watching as you suggest.
