Movie Info

SING NOW or Forever Hold Your Peace is an ensemble comedy about a group of men who sang together in an a cappella group in college. Fifteen years later they reunite to perform at a friend's wedding. During a long weekend rehearsing together, the men reflect on how their lives have progressed -- and in some cases, regressed --since their college heyday. --© Strand Releasing

Take out all the elements of The Big Chill that made you like that film and keep the ones that annoyed you and you've got The Wedding Weekend.

The title is the least of the film's problems; far more significant is its failed attempt to make its protagonists endearing instead of obnoxious.

One long sour note.

Molly Shannon, as the raunchy wife of the group's most reserved member, is the best-known actor in the cast and its most obnoxious.

The actors are well cast and effective. As a film, Sing Now, shot on location, is as attractive as its cast.

Its dramatic freight lurches, and intriguing characters (a sex savant, an Indian human beat box) are sold short; a thinning of the ranks might have helped.

It's an inoffensive and unchallenging little film.

Indie buddy comedy hits too many wrong notes.

The cast veers from overly theatrical (Rogers) to amusing (Molly Shannon as Ted's wife Shannon, a woman who speaks her mind without thinking about the consequences) to spot on (Harbour, DeWitt, Basche, and several others).

The cinematic equivalent of catchy soft-rock elevator music.

It's pretty insubstantial stuff.

As for the singing, it's pleasant but unctuous and, frankly, made me squirm.

April 27, 2007

Sing Now or Forever Hold Your Peace is a poor man's Big Chill, proving that navel gazing isn't the sole province of early baby boomers.

Do we really need another movie with thirtysomethings who ache to re-live their college years? C'mon, guys, grow up!

Sing Now/Wedding Weekend has a marvelous personality to it that does wonders to alleviate the problem areas that plague the script.

April 26, 2007 Full Review Source:

A transparent Big Chill rip-off where all the soap opera's characters share the same toxic personality. Jumpin' Jehosaphat!
