February 20, 2009
The screenplay is fairly standard and even has a few cracks in it, but this film does have exceptional performances. Those performances lift this film above mediocrity.

The pace never slackens, the prattle is relentless. And in the end I was moved.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

Consegue estabelecer, através do recorte de apenas um fim-de-semana na vida de seus personagens, um retrato profundamente complexo e tocante das relações entre os integrantes de uma família marcada pela tragédia.

Those who surrender to Demme's disarming, almost participatory technique will find themselves overwhelmed, exhilarated and inspired by the eternal possibilities of cinema.

A wedding invitation I was very happy to have accepted.
February 13, 2009
The film's only drawback is that, like Kym, it doesn't know when to stop. The intimate feel of a home movie is uniformly matched by an over-indulgent running time.

Hathaway's performance has been deservedly nominated for an Oscar. Whether or not she wins, here's hoping the associated kudos saves her from ever having to do another Bride Wars.

Demme...allows events to meander at times, but his cast is deft and emotionally direct.

You won't always love these characters. But you'll always love watching them.

It's good to see Anne Hathaway challenged in an emotionally dense role and here she gives a star turn as the vulnerable Kym whose despicable behaviour is a cry for help

Like the guest who's overstayed his welcome by a week, the camera simply can't take a clue when it's time to move on. Presenting Runaway Bride's sequel: 'Runaway Bridal Party.'

Demme has made two of my favorite films, Philadelphia and Melvin and Howard as well as the classic The Silence of the Lambs. In his latest movie Rachel Getting Married, the lambs never stop bleating. And they're dysfunctional.

Wandering aimlessly, it immerses the viewer in a never-ending series of song and dance, wedding toasts, and family feuds.

Hathaway does well enough and one can understand Kym attempting to kill herself in the family car before happily returning to rehab. At the end, I felt like entering the Priory for a schmaltz detox.
January 28, 2009
Demme's watchful approach reveals that even Kym has a good side. Weddings are rarely quite as calamitous as Rachel's, but they are often events at which tensions are overcome and embarrassments forgiven.

Anne Hathaway's overrated, but Rosemarie DeWitt? There's an Oscar waiting to happen.

One of Hollywood's forgotten masters and one of its brightest new actresses team for what could well be an Oscar wild card.

Anne Hathaway turns up at some nice lady's wedding and rudely upstages her and the proceedings.
