  • Much of the film's success is down to [Osamah] Sami's winning performance. He's completely charming as a more nerdy version of himself and he gets good comic support.

  • Ali's Wedding neatly strips away the solemnity enveloping that lead balloon of a word "multiculturalism." There's a joyously comic lack of inhibition here and, even better, we're told it's largely a true story.

  • This is a film in which you will hear a letter read aloud, with a voice-over saying the words "you dared to dream", delivered without irony. It is, as they say, what it is.

  • I don't know why the release of this lovely film has been delayed so long (I saw it in Adelaide in October last year) but it's worth the wait.

  • Walker's debut mines rapid-fire laughs and bountiful heart from a story of romantic misadventure set in train by a young man desperate to live up to his father's expectations.

  • Boosted by goofy humour, Sami embraces rom-com tropes including a mad dash to the airport, playfully mucking around with Muslim stereotypes in the way only an insider can.
