The Big Wedding - Movie Review
Only once before has a movie bombed so badly that I couldn't even bring myself to format a review, that was Friends with Kids and seriously - this review could almost be a reprint.
At first glance the cast is bursting at the seams with talent and not since the atrocity above have I seen talent like this wasted so tragically. Likewise the two hours of my life that I'm never getting back.
The Big Wedding purports to be a slapstick, ensemble comedy - all the elements are there, there's even moments of family honesty that give the audience a glimmer of hope but it never progresses past a vulgar, thrown together 'boink'fest. Lazy one dimensional trash.
I'm no prude by any means but when every joke, every scene and every character plot is based on crudity with no nuance and no feeling then what, dear movie lovers, is the point?
Genuinely wish I'd walked out - wish DeNiro did too.
Tell me, have you ever disliked a movie this much?
