Movie Info

A woman negotiates the tricky etiquette of celebrating the wedding of her former girlfriend in this independent comedy. April (Maria Cina) and Alex (Trish Doolan) are close friends who have something of a past together -- both are lesbians, and they were lovers for several years. Alex is still attracted to April, but April has moved on -- so much so that April one day announces that she's going to marry Pauly (Randall Batinkoff), a pleasant but dull man who was introduced to April by her mother

The film has a pleasant spirit and lively dialogue, and what's more, seems to be coming from a specific cultural and geographical location.

It wrings almost no laughs or tears from this seemingly idiot-proof premise, taking 45 yawn-filled minutes to introduce its collection of severely stereotyped characters, whose conflicts then play out in excruciatingly predictable fashion.

If there is a single phrase that should strike fear in the hearts of innocent moviegoers, it is 'writer-director- producer-star.'

A lighthearted comedy about the outing of a bride-to-be and her five-year relationship with her maid of honor.

Suffers from a malady common to tiny indies of the let's-put-on-a-show variety -- it strains for irrepressibly nutty, but lands squarely in annoying.

How do you stop it, a movie that labors as stridently for sitcom feel-goodness?

With the preordained outcome of telegraphed in its opening scene, all that's left to enjoy of this mean-spirited melodrama, are politically-incorrect laughs at the expense of a bizarre cross-section of California kooks.

Poorly shot, badly timed, lamely idiosyncratic, and annoying.

Unfortunately, the guest list includes a gaggle of clichés.
