The Big Wedding – 2013

“A long-divorced couple fakes being married as their family unites for a wedding.”

Not the typical type of film I would usually indulge in but one very suited to a boring Sunday afternoon when you need a bit of cheering up. Also it could have been a dreadful film but it has Ben Barnes in and when you’re that attractive you can do no wrong. Fortunately it wasn’t a dreadful film at all. Not particularly original, every incident and joke in it has been done before but it’s a solid feel-good film. The only problem I have with it being a feel-good film is that there are plenty around that are for the whole family and equally as good. It was rated 15 in the UK and R in America because of a lot of bad language and some nudity that didn’t really make it any better. It’s not an all out comedy film so I feel like it should have been toned down a bit to make it more marketable.

Some good casting with Robert De Niro, Katherine Heigl, Diane Keaton, Susan Sarandon, and Robin Williams. All household names for a variety of roles. The less famous Amanda Seyfried, Topher Grace, and Ben Barnes completing a nice little mix that all seemed to work very well together. I feel like they might have pushed the boat out on the budget for all these actors/actresses and produced something a bit worse than they were hoping for but it was still a pretty good film, nothing special but watched at the right time and in the right mood it’s definitely capable of being enjoyed.
