Cheerful Weather For The Wedding Reviews

  • Jul 06, 2017

    Before a Review, isn't it amazing how much Zoë Tapper, "Evelyn," resembles the ascendant Claire Foy ("The Queen")? They easily could play sisters. She seems a fine actress, too, a budget model with the same visage. This ensemble of mildly eccentric characters puts on a show that isn't as bad as the critics say, but the story still never quite gels, its own premise torpedoed in the library scene near the end - how she long ago stopped loving him & he never would've married her. Yet this is a story about what-might-have-been told in screen tinted golden flashback recollections of what's presented as an abiding & destined first love. Here's an uber attractive cast doing a good job in a story going mostly nowhere. But this is a girly-girly chick-flick and is mercifully cut to 90-mins, or so. All the elements for a passionate story are here but an engaging arousal never really rises. Oh ... and why doesn't someone grab that obnoxious kid by the belt who's lighting firecrackers all over the house and creating an annoyance ... even in the movie?

    Poor Luke Ward-Wilkinson was completely wasted in this movie; he deserves so much better.

    There are moments of true comedy in this film but overall I felt the story was under developed and lacked the depth needed to be credible.

    Not as enjoyable as what I had hoped it would be. The character of Dolly was quite unlikeable to be honest. Joseph I did like.

    Portrayal of the dynamics in a British family in the thirties during a wedding, but the characters are too flat to make you care for them.

    Between a critic comedy and a romantic drama "Cheerful Weather For The Wedding" is somewhat stuck, not knowing what course to follow, time unhappy mood, time for a protagonist couple to have as little charismatic.
