There is nothing like a good comedy with a bunch of stars that is set around a wedding. There have been many, and some have been not so funny. I have hope for The Big Wedding since it has such a great cast. The cast includes Diane Keaton, Robert De Niro, Susan Sarandon, Robin Williams, Katherine Heigl, Amanda Seyfried, Ben Barnes, and Topher Grace. The trailer can elicit a few laughs, but the best thing about it is how many times Robert De Niro gets hit in the face in the span of two minutes and thirty seconds.
“With an all-star cast lead by Diane Keaton, Robert De Niro, Susan Sarandon, Robin Williams, Katherine Heigl, Amanda Seyfried and Topher Grace, 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.”
The Big Wedding is in theatres October 26, 2012.
