It's a winning farce, if one that's far too broad.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
December 5, 2010
...the didactic and unbelievable nature of many of the conversations and events, sometimes emphasized by cross-cutting, strains the patience of even the most generous viewer.

While it's a relief to visit a side of Africa that's not beset by poverty and war, we learn little about the characters.

At its best when looking at the 21st century trying to get a foothold in a country where a rural landscape, centuries of indigenous tradition and decades of entrenched colonial racism make progress difficult.

When it's all over, it's no more satisfying than a not-bad sitcom.

A tepid, cliché-ridden marriage comedy from South Africa.

October 7, 2010
This is a movie so excited to exist that it overwhelms you with plot. Sitting through it is like opening the door to an overloaded closet. Stuff just tumbles out.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
October 7, 2010
[A] pleasant, intentionally lightweight, South African road-movie romance with a sly integrationist political agenda.

October 5, 2010
The film trivializes real problems in South Africa so I won?t feel bad saying that White Wedding makes it seem like the biggest danger facing the post-apartheid South African film industry is falling victim to Hollywood clichés.
September 16, 2010
A cinematic soap opera that shows what can be done with expensive cars a high fashion clothes. Not much.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10
September 10, 2010
Some scenes are mild fun, but the mishaps that befall our hero aren't especially inventive, and although the South African setting provides a bit of interest, it's never really used incisively.

From the evidence of Jann Turner's ingratiating comedy White Wedding, it's fair to say some groundbreaking is going on in South African cinema.
September 7, 2010
The conflict is superficial, easily rectified, but this allows a feel-good ending with little collateral damage.

Whether this is Vegas or Cape Town, the girl stays home moping while the boys go out and play.

September 4, 2010
A whimsical, uplifting, funny and unexpectedly engrossing journey with just the right balance of comedy and drama.

September 3, 2010
An enjoyable film set in South Africa that makes full use of the country's lingering apartheid tensions and generational divides without ever losing its smile.

While the plot is predictable, South Africa's 'White Wedding' is still an entertaining comedic film that audiences will find universally appealing.

September 3, 2010
Standard ingredients of predictable nuptial nonsense are given an enjoyable new spin in contemporary, middle-class, multiracial, multilingual South Africa.

September 3, 2010
An affable comedy that, unfortunately, has too many characters and subplots for its own good.
