Product Description

Betsy Hopper (Molly Ringwald) and her fiancé just want a quiet, intimate wedding. But Betsy's father (Alan Alda) feels threatened by his future son-in-law's rich parents, so he plans an extravagant affair, only to find that he cannot afford to pay for it all. So he then enlists the help of his brother-in-law, Oscar (Joe Pesci), with his Mob connections, to sort out the problem.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 2 Feb 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was really looking forward to this, having enjoyed a retread of Alda's marvellous 'The Four Seasons' recently. Unfortunately, I was very disappointed.

Alda's tendency to supreme arrogance is on display all over this product, and both his acting and writing at times are bombastic and irritatingly cliched. With a supreme talent like Madeline Kahn in the cast (and one of the main reasons to watch this), you would expect some golden moments of comedy. Not one I'm afraid. Everyone seems painfully restrained, and at times downright embarrassed, with a script that might have seemed funny after a few pints of gin one night, and direction that is totally flat and uninspired.

Ultimately, very third rate Woody Allen, that's not half as good as the third rate stuff Woody Allen has put out on occasion, if you get my drift. My copy went onto ebay within 24 hours.....

4.0 out of 5 stars What REALLY Goes Into The Big Day! 16 Jun 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This warm-hearted, often uproarious comedy concerns not so much the cliched soppy present rom-com fixations with the pratfalls leading up to the stupid big day, but all of the problems that come up cos of it-expense, venue, diet preferences, insufficient invites and spacing and most of all the melding of two very different families together. Directed with a keen eye and script for the details, director Alan Alda balances out the stress of a wedding build-up with the fun and he and Madeleine Kahn bounce off each other nicely as a married couple, Molly Ringwald underplays nicely, Ally Sheedy is particularly fine, and Catherine O'Hara, Joe Pesci, Burt Young and the then little-known Ant Lapaglia offer memorable and colourful support.

The big day itself, like the equally funny 2003 remake of 'The In-Laws'-with which it has a lot in common, is the last scene of the film and takes up very little time, it's unimportnat in film terms, it's just the necessary result of where all the coulrful madness before was leading too. And look who cute NipTucks Dylan Walsh is!

This 1990 treasure leaves the more recent 'wedding-day' diasters like 'My Best Friend's Wedding', 'Runaway Bride', 'Wedding Planner', 'P.S I Love You' etc. all dying at its altar.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pleasant Comedy. 26 Jun 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is an affable comedy written by Alan Alda. Some of the acting is a little stiff (Molly Ringwold) but for the most part it is easy and undemanding entertainment, for those times when you just want to 'veg' out.

By Sue J
When their daughter announces her engagement - the plans for the wedding go anything but smoothly. With everyone having their own idea of how the wedding should be, from strictly traditional to zany and with two different religions involved - it is a riotous adventure on the way to the alter. The actors, especially Alan Alder and Madeline Khan were made for these parts and there's lots more to the story than just a 'wedding'. Its a real feel good movie that I will enjoy again and again.
