Critic Reviews for Sing Now or Forever Hold Your Peace

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (10)

Take out all the elements of The Big Chill that made you like that film and keep the ones that annoyed you and you've got The Wedding Weekend.

The title is the least of the film's problems; far more significant is its failed attempt to make its protagonists endearing instead of obnoxious.

One long sour note.

Top Critic

Molly Shannon, as the raunchy wife of the group's most reserved member, is the best-known actor in the cast and its most obnoxious.

The actors are well cast and effective. As a film, Sing Now, shot on location, is as attractive as its cast.

Its dramatic freight lurches, and intriguing characters (a sex savant, an Indian human beat box) are sold short; a thinning of the ranks might have helped.

Audience Reviews for Sing Now or Forever Hold Your Peace

A group of college buddies get together to sing at a friend's wedding some years later. They spend a weekend together, reliving the good old days. The Wedding Weekend was not a horrible film, but it wasn't that great. The whole college friends reunite for a wedding theme is tired. It's been done a lot better than this, in the past. The script was cute, but predictable. The singing was good, but not great. Same old same old. Nothing really sets this one apart from the masses. Molly Shannon and Elizabeth Reaser were entertaining, otherwise, the acting was not very good. At some point they forgot this was supposed to be a comedy and started going in a more serious direction, only not very well. That left a bad taste in my mouth. If you are going to do comedy...do so. If you are going to do a dramady....commit to it and make it real with feeling. The Wedding Weekend was lacking that. Don't rush off to watch this one.

Completely innocuous. You will watch through to the end expecting it to get a little bit funnier or more meaningful, and it won't. Contents: 0% - Profound statements on the human condition 3% - Marginally funny comedy 97% - Air
