It’s like watching a family home video recording of American wedding. Demme has shown salad bowl American culture representing multicultural wedding party & dinner scenes. The movie may be entertaining & close to heart for American but for me it’s too boring. The movie is so slow, so long & so boring that I just can’t believe my eyes that I’m watching Jonathan Demme movie; the director who gave us edge on the seat classic- ‘The silence of the lambs.’ The first half is really boring one & if you survive yourself in the second half than there’s something for you. It’s in the second half where Anne Hathway impressed me with his inherent guilt ridden psyche & behavior as rehab patient.

Kym (Hathway) is a recovering drug addict on rehabilitation & returns to her family after a long gap to attend her sister Rachel’s wedding. She is suffering from hidden guilt & most of the time just messed up with Rachel during the wedding time.

Don’t waste your 100 minutes just to watch Anne Hathway’s glimpses of performance in second half. Watch ‘The Devil wears Prada’ instead.

Ratings- 5.5/10
