Audience Reviews for The Wedding Party

  • Mar 30, 2010
    One of the best commentaries on the horror of getting married. It has the incredibly deranged meet and greets with relatives and the fact that you are basically doing job interviews every time. The use of time is brilliant and original, you can clearly see it has had an impact on De Palma’s later films. The story develops quite well and makes you really get a sense of people, not just characters. For the time period and budget, it’s about the best possible movie you could ask for.

    has some great formal experiments, natural improv, and Finley gives a better performance than De Niro in their first movie

    Made in 1963 and shelved until 1969, this was the feature debut of Brian De Palma and the first of three early movies he made with Robert De Niro. Plot-wise, it's a very simple farce about a bridegroom's last-minute jitters, but it's very flashily put together with speeded-up photography, slow-motion, freeze-frames, jump-cuts and a host of other tricks utilised. Hardly a great movie but, as with a lot of low-budget, independent films, the enthusiasm of the people involved is infectious and charming.
