I watched The Big Wedding last night as a girly treat accompanied with far too chocolate orange and a big cup of tea! I quite enjoyed it, with plenty of comic awkward moments and interesting family dynamics! Although now I am craving a big country house so hubbie is not best pleased. Robin Williams makes an entertaining priest with his probing questions and making notes whilst sighing and tutting he made me giggle.
The characters are on the whole very funny and larger than life! I was surprised the couple were getting married after a year then realised hubbie and I were married after six months… but they seem good together, although not sure I would be keen to take on the rest of the family! The adopted parents of the groom pretend to be together again to placate the birth mother, who was never aware they divorced.
It has a few twists and turns; deceiving on this scale would never be easy and often amusing. Although I did go off it slightly when the divorced couple actually have a quick fling! At that point though it all seems to go a little crazy with more than a few skeletons coming out of the closet…
The Big Wedding is due to be released on the 14th of October with an RRP of £15.99 for the DVD. Worth a watch if you like romantic films with a bit more bite!
