Audience Reviews for A Wedding

  • Jul 14, 2013
    I don't think this is one of Altman's best films. It's good but no where as good as his other works (MASH, McCabe & Mrs Miller, The Long Goodbye, California Split, 3 Women) And yet it is a pure Altman picture filled with his signature overlapping dialogue, a fleet of characters, wicked satire and multiple plots. This film takes place at a wedding and well it's not your typical average wedding. So much zany stuff goes on that I was distracted and had a tough time trying to keep pace with the rest of the movie. I'm sure that was Altman's intent but even his recent film "Nashville" I was able to understand what was going on. Underneath the crude dialogue there was always a powerful scene involving the characters. In "A Wedding" Altman shows many scenes and plots but im not sure if it has made a huge impact for the characters or myself. Hard to describe overall.

    I'm not sure why this film doesn't get mentioned much when Altman is discussed. Maybe I had lower expectations, but I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed the film. It has all the hallmarks of Altman's most popular films: the large ensemble cast, quirky characters, multiple story lines. It most reminded me of Godsford Park, in that both film take place in large country mansions with many people coming to stay for a short period of time. *currently (8-23-11) on Netflix streaming.

    Robert Altman's "A Wedding" is a terrifically witty film. Like most of Altman's ensemble pieces, "A Wedding" is brimming with life, characters, unexpected turns and an uncommonly accurate social commentary. Full of memorable characters and situations as well as some extremely sharp dialogue, "A Wedding" is one of Altman's lesser seen films that deserves to find an audience because its jabs still ring true today. This film is nothing but inspired fun. Carol Burnett is also memorably funny here.

    [font=Century Gothic]"A Wedding" is a typical Robert Altman hodgepodge that is centered around the day of the nouveau riche wedding of Dino Corelli(Desi Arnaz, Jr.) and Muffin Brenner(Amy Stryker). A huge cast(It is strange having Lillian Gish and Carol Burnett in the same universe, much less the same movie.) allows Altman to do an accurate rendering of the nuptials down to the smallest detail but I had the feeling, like with "The Company", what he really wanted to make was a documentary. He is certainly not interested in individual performances, but that is where the movie shines, especially with Lillian Gish, Mia Farrow and the closing monologue.[/font] [font=Century Gothic]It is worth noting how the gay and lesbian characters are kept to the margins in "A Wedding." That serves as a reminder how far gay rights have come in the last thirty years to the point where gay marriage is rightfully becoming a reality. [/font]
