"Breakup at a Wedding'' works, because Quinaz has come up with a concept that lets him skewer directorial pretension alongside wedding hysteria.
If you're the kind who is always up for a calamity-filled trip down the aisle, "Breakup at a Wedding" is a moderately amusing application of the formula.
Any rooting interest in the central lovers evaporates, as both seem so terminally stupid that the thought of them potentially having children together is frightening.
Quinaz shot the film days before his own wedding, and perhaps that explains Breakup's soft, squishy heart: It can't help but melt.
Yes, the whole enterprise is parody, but there remains a welcome streak of humanity to cut deep across the middle of what is an otherwise debauchery-filled romp.
I was pleased enough with Breakup At A Wedding, pleased with its ambition, its execution, even its stylistic conceit. Not exactly high praise, perhaps, but I think the film achieves what it sets out to do, and does so admirably.
