Movie Info

A compulsive gambler schemes to stave off bankruptcy by marrying a Russian bride, but finds his sham wedding turning into an outright farce after his family catches a serious case of matrimony fever. Steve Thompson is dead broke, but he's got a plan to get back in the game. That plan involves Ana, a gorgeous Russian woman who's determined to gain her citizenship. She's willing to pay handsomely for a husband, and fortunately Steve doesn't hold his vows sacred. But just as Steve and Ana are preparing to tie the knot, a family friend shoots his mouth off about the impending ceremony. Before long, Steve is surrounded by his dysfunctional clan, who can't wait to help him celebrate in style. Meanwhile, as word of the wedding spreads like wildfire, Steve realizes that he may have just ruined any shot at true love with Jacqui, the woman of his dreams.

I don't think it's a film that aims very high and it sort of achieves what it aims to do, I think. I found it perfectly amiable.

The improbabilities and sheer banality of Christine Bartlett's screenplay are almost overcome by the quality of the cast, but not quite.

The Wedding Party may well have been a better film if the underdone premise of the fake wedding had been done away with altogether, because the movie is more interesting when it picks at the foibles and fears that gather around these couples.
