“..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]
1.5 of 4

“..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]
1 of 4

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

LATEST REVIEWS

THE WATER DIVINER :

“..the overstuffed story feels bombastic and contrived..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

LITTLE BOY :

“..though occasionally sticky sweet and not always subtle, it's also a smart and very moving story..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

THE FORGER :

“..a movie where the colors blur sloppily..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

AFTER THE BALL :

“.."After the Ball" is a winning if predictable fable..”
by Tom Keogh [Seattle Times]

BROTHERLY LOVE :

“..despite the blazing guns, this script is not so tough..”
by Farran Smith Nehme [New York Post]

BLACKBIRD :

“..it's such a quiet, simple moment in a movie full of more overwrought ones - including a spiritual "deliverance" - but it makes a lasting impression. "Blackbird" would have benefited from using that approach more, rather than saddling a compelling drama..”
by Stephanie Merry [Washington Post]

SEE YOU IN VALHALLA :

“..is as deadly as its funereal subject matter..”
by Michael O'Sullivan [Washington Post]

ADULT BEGINNERS :

“..it's all very low stakes. We know how this is going to turn out. But it is a pleasure watching Kroll and Byrne to the end..”
by Molly Eichel [Philadelphia Inquirer]

JUST BEFORE I GO :

“..Courteney Cox's misbegotten project is a comedy-drama that, to Cox's credit, doesn't feel at all like a TV sitcom..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

MISERY LOVES COMEDY :

“..the funny folks in actor Kevin Pollak's well-structured doc can actually break down what they do..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]
