Critic Reviews for The Wedding Party
Clumsily cobbled, tonally confused romantic comedy...a terrific premise with strong leads is sadly derailed by too many side stories.
An offbeat and entertaining ensemble piece that disappointingly ends on a lukewarm note.
I don't think it's a film that aims very high and it sort of achieves what it aims to do, I think. I found it perfectly amiable.
The improbabilities and sheer banality of Christine Bartlett's screenplay are almost overcome by the quality of the cast, but not quite.
The Wedding Party may well have been a better film if the underdone premise of the fake wedding had been done away with altogether, because the movie is more interesting when it picks at the foibles and fears that gather around these couples.
All is well if you accept as plausible the central premise of the screenplay ... For me ... is just too far fetche
