“..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]

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]

BOYHOOD :
