It's a winning farce, if one that's far too broad.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

White Wedding is about connections, and it has the good sense to pull them together in a film that's sweet, inclusive and sunny.

Apparently any deep-seated generational conflict can be resolved with camaraderie, off-key sing-alongs, and binge drinking.

Director Turner never musters the requisite manic energy that might get her proceedings off the ground.
