“..The Big Wedding is a sloppy affair, with only partially formed characters and ridiculous scenarios that strain credulity and patience..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
1 of 4

“..produced in 2012, except for the jokes and the whole set-up, produced in about 1955..”
by Frank Lovece [Newsday]

“..packing a weak movie with big names doesn't mean audiences can ignore the bad smell rising around them. These kids should have eloped and saved us all 88 minutes of pain..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

“..no one is bad in The Big Wedding, but no one is remotely believable, either..”
by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer]

“..it's too dull, too crowded, too ugly..”
by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger]

“..it's just such a shining example of a dull studio comedy..”
by Rick Groen [Globe and Mail]

“..it's a mess, and not in a good way..”
by Moira Macdonald [Seattle Times]
1.5 of 4

“..feels like nothing more ambitious than a big screen sit-com. It's tired and dated with too few laughs to justify the stultifying attempts at drama and the impossible-to-swallow plot contortions..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]

“..a would-be screwball comedy that forgets to throw in the screws..”
by Rene Rodriguez [Miami Herald]

“..the chemistry is mostly forced, the story without an emotional core. And though Crowe's facility for language can be striking, here it never moves beyond self-consciousness..”
by Sheri Linden [Hollywood Reporter]


“..Tanu Weds Manu Returns is as entertaining and engaging a film as any that Bollywood has delivered this year..”
by Harish Jaiswal [Cine Magazine Digital]


“..the movie has a few cute moments, but for the most part it's as predictable as being bored in trigonometry..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]


“..director James McTeigue ( V for Vendetta) has turned in a crisply efficient thriller that doesn’t surprise but still manages to be mildly entertaining over the course of its predictable 96 minutes..”
by Cary Darling [DFW.com]


“..it's hard to appreciate San Andreas as much more than a series of special effects vistas: impeccably detailed, completely plastic..”
by Ignatiy Vishnevetsky [A.V. Club]


“..fearsomely visceral and impeccably performed, it's a brisk, bracing update, even as it remains exquisitely in period..”
by Guy Lodge [Variety]


“..delightfully inventive, funny and touching and, surreptitiously, a great way of helping kids get a handle on all those inexplicable feelings..”
by David Sexton [This is London]


“..Villeneuve handles conventional action sequences terrifically well..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]


“..from the cloying, ever-present score to the complete lack of narrative momentum, it all adds up to a film that's easily Van Sant's worst..”
by Oliver Lyttelton [The Playlist]


“..the movie can conjure up futuristic images, but the story is nothing we haven't seen before...”
by Stephanie Merry [Washington Post]
