Freddie and Maura are getting married - but not to each other. Freddie's on his second marriage - to neurotic Sophie - and Maura is marrying Wilson for his money. Then the two wedding parties end up at the same venue and the delicate house of cards looks set to fall. Who will end up with whom?
Giving the rave reviews a chance, I ignored the poor reviews & wished I hadn't. This couldn't have been more contrived if it tried, in theory the storyline had the makings to while away an hour or two on a wet Sunday afternoon but it failed, epically, on all counts.
Save the 99p and buy a knitting needle. Then bang the needle into your eyes. I guarantee it will be more enjoyable and a better use of your money. I have never seen such an amateur, poorly acted and ultimately unfunny film. Absoloute rubbish.
Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. What on earth was Sally Hawkins doing in this turdfest? I hope the filthy lucre was worth it; there has to be some reason she decided to star in something so awful. The script was unbelievably weak, it must have been knocked off on a Sunday afternoon. As for the humour, my school plays were funnier than this and that's saying something. Truly dreadful.
What a wonderful, fun movie! I found it by chance in the library because they were having a 3 for price of 2 offer and I hunted for a 3rd DVD.
Two weddings take place on the same day, and the receptions are at the same hotel, but the hotel has double-booked. They manage to fit both the events in. Then Sally Hawkins' character has a fateful encounter with the other marriage's new husband, and the result is absolute mayhem due to persistent and wonderful very Irish-humour misunderstandings. Hawkins' character's clever, wilfully interfering young daughter has her own agenda and adds to the chaos. Many things aren't what they seem and I was completely fooled by one of the tricks. It's real laugh out loud over and over and manic events ensue and yet it's not silly-funny farce, it's all very believable, it really could happen if......
Anyone who adores Father Ted will recognise the type of humour and don't we Brits all love this humour too!
I shall be buying this one! Irresistible and eminently rewatchable and just the kind of movie to watch with visitors wanting a quiet evening.... "Have you see this one?" Probably they haven't since it doesn't have any other reviews so far here...... You can start laughing even before they start watching, knowing how they'll soon be falling about!
This one should have had rave reviews. Where are they?
wooden people i didn't laugh once nothing witty just fall on floor slap stick. nothing real about the characters to hang onto. bad script slow and verrrryyyy boring. good job some of those actors have gone on to greater things coz this film is in the bin or charity shop!
Comedy at it's best like the label say's makes you laugh out loud or it did me,good for a evening in with friends,it's about people who do things because they need the cash and that includes marrying someone who wants to stay in the country to be with his girlfriend,hey he was paying the money,the girl who then finds out that maybe she didn't really want to get married,how to go out in the middle of the wedding make friends with strangers and how to drown your phone in your glass of wine,very funny well worth the the money and time,will put a smile on anyone's face.
