    This movie was horrible. I hated every character (at one point or another) with the exception of Kellan Lutz. Yea, they were not well written - it was quite ridiculous. Mandy Moore's character was the most annoying/frustrating of all. The story was a decent idea...it just wasn't written well. The direction was lacking a bit at times too. All in all, this was just really, really not that good. What did this movie teach me? Focus on your own lives people, not the lives of others!

    I keep wanting to mistakenly refer to this movie as Love, Marriage, Divorce since that seems like a more prevailing plot element in this abysmal rom-com. Mandy Moore plays a couples counselor who's a newlywed herself, having just gotten hitched with Charlie (the Twilight Saga's Kellan Lutz). Her life is great, that is, until she learns her parents (James Brolin, Jane Seymour) are splitting up. Their pain will soon be felt by every person watching this wretched movie. Incompetently directed by actor Dermot Mulroney (My Best Friend's Wedding), the movie's tone approaches something like spastic cartoon. Mulroney frames everything in uncomfortable close-ups, which magnifies the exaggerated gyrations and facial expressions of his cast. It looks like every person onscreen is suffering a stroke at one point. The acting is so shockingly terrible. It's like the actors have been replaced with the amateur dinner theater versions of themselves. Moore's character is too shrewish and self-involved to be compelling, and Lutz, whose name rhymes with putz, is so wooden you'd swear they carved him out of a chunk of balsa right before cameras rolled. The sitcom plot suffers from every cliché imaginable in the rom-com genre. This is the worst case of bad drunk acting since 2006's The Black Dahlia, where actors over-do just about every action. The funny part is that it's only a slight difference from the ay the characters are behaving sober. Criminally unfunny, I have only one theory how Mulroney was able to get this movie made because clearly the screenplay wasn't reeling investors in. In the end credits are many producers and executive producers, several of them with Slavic surnames. There's also a Slavic model with in a key role. Mulroney turned to the only people who would finance Love, Wedding, Marriage - the Russian mafia. If you see Mulroney in a wheelchair from an "accident" in the near future, you heard it here first. Nate's Grade: D-

    Oh dear. Now, I know Mandy Moore can do better than this! Seriously, I nearly switched it off ten minutes in. Poor acting, dull story.Kind of picked up enough to keep me watching, but was a fairly flat experience. Didn't get to the end and think, wow glad I watched it. I can see how this one went straight to DVD without being heard of. If you like silly chick flicks, you might want to check it out. Otherwise, I would recommend the far better "Because I said so" or even "A walk to remember" if you want to see Mandy in a good movie. I guess on the plus, she and Kellan Lutz make a nice pair here, and there's a small part by Alyson Hannigan as one of the couples who attend her marriage counselling. Alyson is always funny, but yeah, not enough to recommend the whole movie based on that. I guess kind of has a nice message about making a marriage work (I am trying to be positive here!).

    What to say about a movie where story is about a marriage counsellor who cannot manage to save a marriage...???? A movie that starts off with a wedding is usually going to see things go bad before they get better. Defying this common wisdom, "Love Wedding Marriage" never gets better! Ava (Mandy Moore) is a marriage counsellor whose life as a newlywed married to Charlie (Kellan Lutz) is turned upside down when she discovers her parents' happy marriage is unexpectedly headed for divorce. Determined to reconcile her parents for their 30th anniversary surprise party she stops at nothing plunging from one compromising situation to another. In that process she destroys her own marriage... Dermot Mulroney's directorial debut is a real flop and he made a chemistry-free romantic comedy with no power behind it... Mandy Moore and Kellan Lutz were good "tools" for that!
