Movie Info

On the eve of their wedding, Alison gets cold feet and decides to break up with her fiancé Phil. But rather than face the embarrassment of calling off the ceremony, Alison suggests to Phil that they proceed with a sham wedding. Phil is more than game to try, secretly hoping that a surprise gift he has for Alison will ultimately change her mind. Yet once the guests begin to arrive, more complications ensue than either of them could have ever imagined - even if they did know their wedding was bullshit. (c) Oscilloscope

Critic Reviews for Breakup at a Wedding

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (4)

"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.

The Film Stage

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.

Audience Reviews for Breakup at a Wedding

I'm engaged and was in the mood for a comedy style wedding movie. I found Breakup at a Wedding on Hulu Plus. I never finished this movie. It was AWFUL. It reinforced my idea of having a simple wedding and doing what we want instead of worrying about others. Breakup at a Wedding is as depressing as the title comes and oddly listed as a comedy. The bride decides she doesn't want to marry the groom right before the wedding, but they decide to have the wedding since they won't get their deposits back. Then the plan is not to sign the marriage certificate. It's miserable, not funny, and not entertaining at all. Skip it.

The way the director put this film together is brilliant. It had the flavors of The Office meets the Wedding Photographer. I thought that the entire idea behind the film was well done and I loved every second of this movie. It is great!
