So the holidays gave me some time to catch up on a few movies and this was one of them. It is star-studded indeed but had very bad reviews in Rotten Tomatoes which made me feel bad coz it managed to elicit a few chuckles from me. And what's important is the feeling that the movie imparted to me at the very end. It's been a while since I got these warm, fuzzy feeling. :)
I couldn't help but relate to Ellie's lines in the end. To paraphrase, "You are right. There are many kinds of love and I'm feeling all of them." :)
With an all-star cast led by Robert De Niro, 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.
