“My dear, listen. Since this is your first and surely, your last opportunity to be a wedding planner, why don’t you keep your amateur ideas to yourself and let the professionals do it? The layout is perfect. We’re not gonna change anything. We’ll have no stage and the centerpiece will stay exactly where it should be.. in… the…center.” – Lawrence Phillips

Brief Synopsis – Follows a variety of people living in the Boston area as their lives revolve around love and marriage.
My Take on it – Really terrible film that fails to work on so many levels.
The story doesn’t manage to give enough focus on any of the characters and that hurts things because it comes across as being a bit too jumpy between the various story lines.
None of these characters are developed enough and they all come across as stereotypes or caricatures due to this.
The tone of the film is far too light and that distracts the viewer from trying to find something meaningful or inspiring in any of these story lines.
The cast is ok and despite having stellar actors like Diane Keaton, Jeremy Irons and Maggie Grace leading the way, things just aren’t fun enough to even care what will happen to any of these characters along the way.
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – The film was inspired by director Dennis Dugan’s wife who had asked him to write a wedding movie. He had begun writing the film as a ode to his wife fifteen years ago. Coincidentally, it was during a family trip to London where his wife and kids had ended up meeting Jeremy Irons who would later star in the film all those years later. (From IMDB)
Rating – Razzie Worthy (3/10)
