First, let’s get the formalities out of the way. And for those reading, if you want to interpret this paragraph, think of it in a feigned Entertainment Tonight sort of way. The Big Wedding is a new family centered comedy from Justin Zackman, the writer and producer of The Bucket List. Robert De Niro, Susan Sarandon, Diane Keaton and Robin Williams all lend their talents to what will be one of the must see films of the fall. And now we have our first look at this wacky ensemble comedy.
No need to give a synopis, the plot is all laid out in the trailer. Except for the women on the far left in the photo above. Who is that?
Okay enough polite cordial introduction, if anyone out there is excited about seeing this trifling clichéd movie, a little piece of me just died. Secondly, how is this not a Lifetime movie of the week starring Harry Hamlin and Jennie Garth? I mean, the quality of it looks to be cable TV bad. You know Lionsgate; you’re not making things easier when you continue to make bullshit like this. This is the very reason why most movie fans groan at the product coming out of almost every movie studio today.
Then there is the shell of a man formally known as Robert De Niro, when are you going to get out this funk man? You’re so far removed from challenging yourself; the bad choices are starting to outweigh all the brilliant stuff you did. Is it just about collecting a paycheck now? Don’t end your career like that.
I wish I could offer up something positive to say about The Big Wedding, one tiny funny joke that came out the trailer, but it’s not there. This movie looks downright awful.
The Big Wedding’s big day is Oct 26th.
