Critic Review - Movie Metropolis

The film is not funny or silly or screwy or madcap or witty or sardonic or satiric. It's just dull.

With respect to Mr. Puccio's preference for topics covered in film or for films with more action, I feel his review indicates that he missed the subtle, but ingenious themes common to human nature embedded within a comedy. Wedding Bros is not like a Three Stooges film, but combines humor with tension found within the relationships, for example, the personas of Carmine and Anthony switch in the ending scene; the father resolves his dissention with his sons who committed family-business mutiny and funds their new videography business; anthony resolves his love interest with Lauren (Trixie) by filming her wedding and the audience is left with the impression that there is potential for a new love relationship between Anthony and Lauren's attractive sister. Perhaps Mr. Puccio missed the funny scenes where Carmine and the bathroom attendant team up to record sound-bytes to over-dub into the film as a replacement for his screw-up at the wedding where his antics and lack of focus cause the vows to be recorded as baseball play-by-play. The fact that Mr. Puccio does not find that scene funny is, well, sad. May I suggest that Mr. Puccio does a "Take-two" and watch the film again, but this time, paying attention to the "action" set up by the creative writer-directors that requires their audience to become part of the film.

And may I suggest that Eric K., who became a member of RT the very month I posted my "Wedding Bros." review, is a PR shill, spamming here just as he did at DVDTOWN.
