The Big Wedding; when you need some comic relief

13_72dpiAt long last, THE BIG WEDDING will be hitting theaters everywhere THIS FRIDAY!

Yes, I know this has been done before. There are a million and a half romantic comedies about family chaos, wedding drama and in-laws, but this one looks extra hilarious and has an amazing cast. The movie is directed by Justin Zackham, starring Diane Keaton, Robert De Niro, Susan Sarandon, Robin Williams, Katherine Heigl, Amanda Seyfried and Topher Grace.

I’m also sure it will get rated poorly because most romantic comedies do, but I urge you to go see for yourself. We all need some comic relief these days and you should absolutely partake in the opening weekend of this flick.

THE BIG WEDDING SYNOPSIS:
An uproarious romantic comedy about a charmingly modern family trying to survive a weekend wedding celebration that has the potential to become a full blown family fiasco. To the amusement of their adult children and friends, long divorced couple Don and Ellie Griffin (De Niro and Keaton) are once again forced to play the happy couple for the sake of their adopted son’s wedding after his ultra conservative biological mother unexpectedly decides to fly halfway across the world to attend. With all of the wedding guests looking on, the Griffins are hilariously forced to confront their past, present and future – and hopefully avoid killing each other in the process.

Wedding movies are always hilarious #BigWedding

Why is it that wedding themed movies are always funny? Well I can think of one exception, The Family Stone, I did not enjoy. But for the most part movies based around weddings are typically hilarious. Why? Because the whole planning a wedding just caters to the anxieties of everyone involved. People are taken over my alien pods, I’m convinced, when they begin planning a wedding together. Someone you think probably won’t care about the cake flavor or floral arrangements, well the inevitably do. And then we all know the pain that does into creating seating assignments during the reception. Heaven forbid people aren’t close to the bride and groom!

The above remains very much true for the upcoming movie The Big Wedding starring Robert DeNiro, Katherine Heigl, Diane Keaton, Amanda Seyfried, and Topher Grace, with Susan Sarandon and Robin Williams.

SYNOPSIS:

With an all-star cast led by Robert DeNiro, Katherine Heigl, Diane Keaton, Amanda Seyfried, Topher Grace, with Susan Sarandon and Robin Williams, THE BIG WEDDING is an uproarious romantic comedy about a charmingly modern family trying to survive a weekend wedding celebration that has the potential to become a full blown family fiasco.  To the amusement of their adult children and friends, long divorced couple Don and Ellie Griffin (De Niro and Keaton) are once again forced to play the happy couple for the sake of their adopted son’s wedding after his ultra conservative biological mother unexpectedly decides to fly halfway across the world to attend. With all of the wedding guests looking on, the Griffins are hilariously forced to confront their past, present and future – and hopefully avoid killing each other in the process.

I ask you, why does Robin Williams always play a priest or a preacher or something of that nature? Or am I making this up? For some reason I feel he has played that type of role before and yet he doesn’t seem to be the likely candidate for such a role in real life.

Either way, this is a great cast and I very much hope the movie ends up being amazingly funny. It has all the potential to be.
