Kiss the Bride Reviews
Amanda Detmer (recognized from her terrifying bus crash scene in Final Destination as well as roles in Saving Silverman, Big Fat Liar and a few television rolls) is quite appealing in the lead here as a likable young woman about to wed but has to put up with her impossible family. With three sisters who provide more drama than a soap opera and a couple of other relatives who do nothing but cause havoc, one may not question why she is getting married partially to get away from it all!
Some viewers who have high expectations for their chick flicks may grow frustrated with this one as it moves slowly and concentrates quite a lot on the drama presented with each character, and has at least one ending too many. Yet, as one of Detmer‚??s few starring vehicles, it will surely satisfy fans and also gives her fianc√© (The Boondock Saints‚?? Sean Patrick Flannery) a good opportunity to show his lighter side. Don‚??t expect Sleepless in Seattle chemistry, but still a pleasant outing.
As family drama is a big part of the film, many should be able to relate to how complicated these events are when all are involved, especially rivals of the bride and groom. This fact alone gives the film great credibility as most all siblings have some bitterness, which they hide for many years. Stay tuned through the end credits for some fun wedding reception footage with the glamorous cast.
