Manic and earnest, the meticulously constructed plot whips by at a breakneck pace.

It's clear that the French writing-directing team of Olivier Nakache and Éric Toledano is capable of taking the genre to new heights.

Quirky French wedding comedy has drinking, language.

October 3, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Despite a fine, fun, multicultural ensemble cast, not every character and subplot here is gold, but the film breezes along so amiably that its weaker moments never grate. It's a shame that such an obvious crowd-pleaser is getting such a limited release.

September 10, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Few films this year will provide as much sheer joy as this bubbly, charming and relentlessly hilarious jog around an arena we're all familiar with.
