    It's nothing particularly special or original but it is funny and pretty sweet. A great cast of characters comes together to play a large family that comes together for a wedding. As you would expect from a group of people who all have different personalities, issues, and secrets eventually all heck breaks loose. This leads to some funny moments that ultimately make this film worth aIt's nothing particularly special or original but it is funny and pretty sweet.

This leads to some funny moments that ultimately make this film worth a watch, but it's not hard to notice the unoriginality of it all. A lot, or rather most, of what is being done here has been done elsewhere. Still it's funny and I enjoyed watching it, so as far as I'm concerned it gets a passing score. All in all it's pretty good and funny. Expand

    With such big names, one can safely assume that the movie has little to say in terms of a good storyline. This movie was awkward and even childish at times. The cast still managed a good performance as good as their characters would allow them. It definitely wasn't as memorable or re-watchable as I had imagined it would be.

    In short, a little unpretentious and relaxing movie.
    Of course, it's not the smartest movie I've ever seen, and the story's not particularly interesting. It's just a movie to watch when you don't want to think about anything. The cast is surprisingly rich : it's weird, at the beginning, to see Robert DeNiro, Ben Barnes, and Katherine Heighl in the same room but, why not ?

    Putting the ‘retch’ into ‘wretched’, this wedding comedy makes the fatal assumption that the sight of acting icons of a certain age – Robert De Niro, Susan Sarandon and Diane Keaton – behaving badly will have us rolling in the aisles.

    The movie is bland hackwork; its crime isn't incompetence, but indifference.

    This would-be-frothy date flick is a sub-"Meet the Fockers" dog’s dinner.
