Movie Info

It's modern day South Africa and in Cape Town the beautiful Ayanda (Zandile Msutwana) is just days away from achieving her lifelong dream: the perfect white wedding. The only problem is that her husband-to-be, the loyal, committed Elvis (Kenneth Nkosi) is 1800 kilometres away in Johannesburg. He sets off on Tuesday night by bus to Durban intending to connect with his childhood friend and best-man Tumi (Rapulana Seiphemo). But the plans start to go awry when Tumi doesn't show up at the bus

While it's a relief to visit a side of Africa that's not beset by poverty and war, we learn little about the characters.

A film that chafes, even as it ingratiates.

A tepid, cliché-ridden marriage comedy from South Africa.

This is a movie so excited to exist that it overwhelms you with plot. Sitting through it is like opening the door to an overloaded closet. Stuff just tumbles out.

Some scenes are mild fun, but the mishaps that befall our hero aren't especially inventive, and although the South African setting provides a bit of interest, it's never really used incisively.

An enjoyable film set in South Africa that makes full use of the country's lingering apartheid tensions and generational divides without ever losing its smile.

...the didactic and unbelievable nature of many of the conversations and events, sometimes emphasized by cross-cutting, strains the patience of even the most generous viewer.

At its best when looking at the 21st century trying to get a foothold in a country where a rural landscape, centuries of indigenous tradition and decades of entrenched colonial racism make progress difficult.

October 15, 2010 Full Review Source: DCist

When it's all over, it's no more satisfying than a not-bad sitcom.

[A] pleasant, intentionally lightweight, South African road-movie romance with a sly integrationist political agenda.

The film trivializes real problems in South Africa so I won?t feel bad saying that White Wedding makes it seem like the biggest danger facing the post-apartheid South African film industry is falling victim to Hollywood clichés.

October 5, 2010 Full Review Source:

A cinematic soap opera that shows what can be done with expensive cars a high fashion clothes. Not much.

From the evidence of Jann Turner's ingratiating comedy White Wedding, it's fair to say some groundbreaking is going on in South African cinema.

The conflict is superficial, easily rectified, but this allows a feel-good ending with little collateral damage.

Whether this is Vegas or Cape Town, the girl stays home moping while the boys go out and play.

A whimsical, uplifting, funny and unexpectedly engrossing journey with just the right balance of comedy and drama.

While the plot is predictable, South Africa's 'White Wedding' is still an entertaining comedic film that audiences will find universally appealing.

September 3, 2010 Full Review Source: AOL Black Voices

Standard ingredients of predictable nuptial nonsense are given an enjoyable new spin in contemporary, middle-class, multiracial, multilingual South Africa.
