And you wondered why they have so many Polish jokes? Here's one.

Although the film lacks the charm of the ethnic gem Moonstruck, it does justice in its own idiosyncratic way to the unpredictable course of love.

Mixes drama and comedy into an uneasy blend that muddles the honesty of each perspective and leaves behind a messy taste.

Polish Wedding often steams, but that just blurs the vision.

It didn't work for me, I got no warm and fuzzy feeling for this working-class family.

Screen It!

A disjointed but funny look at a fictitious, blue collar, Polish American family, Polish Wedding manages to be enjoyable due to its winning cast and charmingly buoyant aura that permeates the film.

Writer/director Theresa Connelly gets it right her first time out. She's helped by a good visual sense, a wonderful score, and strong writing that highlights her obvious love for her characters.

A cure for the wedding bell blues infecting a Polish-American family chock full of moonstruck women and Adonis-featured men.
