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.

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

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.

Quirky French wedding comedy has drinking, language.

Oct 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.
