Movie Info

DESTINATION WEDDING reunites two of Hollywood's most adored stars, Keanu Reeves and Winona Ryder, as the socially awkward Frank and Lindsay. When they meet on their way to a destination wedding, they soon discover they have a lot in common: they both hate the bride, the groom, the wedding, themselves, and most especially each other. As the weekend's events continually force them together -- and their cheerlessness immediately isolates them from the other guests -- Frank and Lindsay find that if you verbally spar with someone long enough, anything can happen. When debate gives way to desire they must decide which is stronger: their hearts or their common sense.

All Critics (80) | Top Critics (23) | Fresh (42) | Rotten (38)

  • This is, hands down, the most ridiculously overwritten film in the history of romcoms, possibly even of all movies.

  • A couple of scenes in Destination Wedding fall so calamitously flat I had the disconcerting sensation I was watching the film dubbed in a foreign language or for a spoofed internet meme.

  • Given that Winona and Keanu are old pals, they have an easy chemistry together, even playing such utterly repugnant characters.

  • It's basically the Phil and Rita dynamic from 'Groundhog Day', only with two Phils and a fifth of the jokes.

    May 7, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Despite having two inherently likable actors in Keanu Reeves and Winona Ryder, Levin's characters are so disagreeable that it's difficult to become sympathetic toward their whirlwind affair. And a lot of the dialogue rings false.

    Sep 9, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Your enjoyment may depend on how cheekily delightful you find it that they keep up the chatter even during a hillside hump: "Can we please stop talking about your mother?" "I'm killing time."

Audience Reviews for Destination Wedding

  • Jul 09, 2019
    Winona Ryder and Keanu Reeves star in the satiric romantic comedy Destination Wedding. The film follows two misanthropes who are paired together at a destination wedding as they critique each other, the wedding activities, life, and love. Both Ryder and Reeves give strong performance, and prove able to carry the film; which is entirely focused on their two characters. And, the witty banter is incredibly clever and has a nice rhythm and style to it. Still, it can get a little raunchy and nihilistic – which kills the romance vibe. It's a bit of a gimmick film and is kind of limited by the two character format, but Destination Wedding is entertaining and delivers some laughs.

    A wonderfully constructed (and acted) exercise in egotism.
