A sweet film that toys with relationships, passions and bargains, Second Hand Wedding embraces the notion that there is more than a bargain to be found at garage sales.

Second Hand Wedding delivers a days-of-yore quirky comedy from across the Tasman that dares to be simply fun and entertaining.

I was never bored by Second-Hand Wedding, but nor was I much engaged.

Never anything but clichéd, this film tugs at all the emotional levers but struggles to elicit a single tear or giggle.

You can see where you're supposed to laugh and cry, but most of the time the techniques employed to achieve this err too far on the side of subtlety. Because of this, Second Hand Wedding doesn't linger long in the memory after the credits have rolled

Beneath all that affection is a lot of cool calculation.

Directed by Paul Murphy from a script by Nick Ward and Linda Niccol, this is possibly the daggiest film of the year.

Second Hand Wedding is a singular underachievement. Some NZ newspapers have compared the film to The Castle for its down-home modesty and charm. It has much to be modest about.

I don't think it's a masterpiece but I think it's got heart.

Some of the characters around these four are ill-conceived and over-played, but somehow because the core of the film is so believable and so nice you forgive a few excesses here and there.

This tragic effort at a homegrown comedy delivers second hand laughs.

Second Hand Wedding is not brilliant, but its enjoyable moments outweigh its drowsier segments. It takes you to the feel-good place that it was shooting for.

Audience Reviews for Second Hand Wedding

Here's a piece of Kiwiana, full of self-deprecating humour. And it was shot on the beautiful Kapiti Coast, right up the road from where I live. A film worth seeking out.
