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 ...
Quirky French wedding comedy has drinking, language.
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.
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.
Think of the melting-pot mirth of mingling social strata in The Marriage of Figaro, then subtract Mozart.
A finely tuned ensemble piece that delivers plenty of big laughs.
Goes down easy as these films should, chock full of engaging characters, gentle humour and a lot of heart ... Some of the later set-pieces, once the place is all lit up, are stunningly beautiful.
It's a mad farce - but the fun, chuckle-worthy kind.
The film doesn't quite work. It has some choice moments, enough to carry us through, but it's difficult to build mood and tension with this kind of sprawling story and a large cast.
A beautifully cast ensemble that provides plenty of needle-sharp comic characterisations.
