The Big Wedding is the kind of movie that gives boomers a bad name.
February 26, 2019
The Big Wedding becomes rather worn and flat. Still, with such a prestigious cast, it's hard to truly hate the film.

If the whole set-up wasn't so apologetically dire, you could call its politics offensive.
November 17, 2018
Trivial, meandering and mean-spirited, The Big Wedding ironically serves as an instant funeral for the camera-mugging cohorts saddled in this incoherent and mindless marriage-in-the-making mishap.

An all-star cast fall victim to a shallow, tasteless script.

The plot and casting call for so much suspension of belief it makes "happily ever after" seem a realistic proposition.

Peculiarly set on proving that puerile gags aren't just for youths, this gross-out comedy, presumably aimed at oldies, is just about watchable thanks to [its] cast...though why they signed up remains utterly mystifying.

The unnecessarily complicated plot would have been tough to squeeze into any movie, let alone a 90-minute one. Needless to say, it is quite choppy.

Some scripts can be saved by a good cast that delivers the material with as much chutzpah as possible. And then there are some that are simply unsalvageably dreadful.

No apenas uma m comdia; mau Cinema.

The goofy characters waltz through plenty of offbeat situations, but that's not enough because quirky and funny are not synonymous.

What it desperately needed was more originality. I suppose Zackham thought that if he just got a great cast and sprinkled enough humor into it, then those would be enough to cover up all the flaws in the script. Unfortunately, he was very much mistaken.

Behold the unholy matrimony of hack-job romance and whack-job comedy. Witness the blindingly bleached marriage of house-porn and cocky Caucasian privilege. Suffer the union of former A-list stars and express-cashed paycheques.
June 5, 2013
Built on chaotically disparate tones and extremely broad jokes that never hit their mark, The Big Wedding is completely devoid of laughs.
June 3, 2013
Sinks to new levels of horrid.

At least somebody does fall in the swimming pool. It's Robert De Niro. Unfortunately, he resurfaces.
May 31, 2013
With De Niro inexcusably using what is for many people the single most obscene swear word, this is well off target.
May 31, 2013
Big wedding? Big fat nothing, more like.

"Oh God, this is humiliating," trills Diane Keaton and she never said a truer word.

This is not so much Meet The Fockers as meet the shockers. The jokes are something old, nothing new, mainly borrowed and sadly blue. De Niro is a shadow of his former shelf, not so much Taxi Driver as taxidermy.
