Storyline Heading
A charmingly modern family tries 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 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.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy - Despite the title and all outward appearances, the R rating for this comedy is deserved, for it is a frequently raunchy farce. This is an ensemble piece though most of the focus is on Robert De Niro and Diane Keaton, with other stars such as Amanda Seyfried and Robin Williams having much smaller parts. Language and constant raunchy humor make this one not for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Below Average The Big Wedding feels like nothing more ambitious than a big screen sit-com.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Below Average When it all comes down to it, however, "The Big Wedding" is a movie in which no one felt compelled to do a good job — which is exactly why no one should feel compelled to see it.

USA Today Full Review
Average A few laughs and an all-star cast aren't enough reason to say "I do" to this formulaic, unrealistic film.

NY Post Full Review
Terrible The brutally unfunny, cringe-worthy 'The Big Wedding' provides ample opportunities for Robert De Niro, Diane Keaton, Susan Sarandon and Robin Williams to embarrass themselves.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 68 moviegoers:
TEENS:The one male loved "The Big Wedding." Three females loved it and three rated it just average.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:Three of the four males loved it and one rated it just average. Great reviews from nearly all the ladies. Only a few were slightly disappointed.
ADULTS:For this type of movie, the reviews from the males isn't too bad. It shows almost a quarter loved it and another third enjoyed it very much. The remaining third, or so, rated it average, which isn't bad coming from the guys. The female reviews are somewhat disappointing since this is, obviously, a movie targeted at the ladies. Quite a few loved it or enjoyed it very much but too many were somewhat to very disappointed.
