This is an expertly assembled, tartly played and hugely enjoyable romp ...

Set over the course of one event, Nakache and Toledano prove adept at planning and crowd management, plunging us into the workings of the backstage staff and some of the wedding party without losing us in the melee.

The filmmakers are specialists in non-threatening arthouse cinema, and this one is as non-threatening as it gets.

An uproariously contemporary riff on Robert Altman's underrated classic A Wedding [...] focusing almost exclusively on [the] wedding planner and his eccentric crew.

The script isn't quite good enough to function as an alibi for its scene-by-scene implausibility, and the action isn't sufficiently credible to excuse the lack of really sharp gags.

Co-directors and screenwriters Eric Toledano and Olivier Nakache (Untouchables) pull another magical trick out of the hat with a ruthlessly-plotted breeze of ensemble good humour, C'est La Vie!
