Consensus: The Big Wedding's all-star cast is stranded in a contrived, strained plot that features broad stabs at humor but few laughs.

Time Out

It's not the sheer predictability of the ensuing frolics that's hardest to take, or even the dismal attempts at humour ... but the sheer misery of watching actors you once respected demean themselves in such utterly worthless fodder.

Richard Roeper

Looks great, some terrific ingredients, but when you slice it up, what a disappointment.

Peculiarly set on proving that puerile gags aren't just for youths, this gross-out comedy, presumably aimed at oldies, is just about watchable thanks to [its] cast...though why they signed up remains utterly mystifying.

Barring a few off-color jokes, though, the movie feels like a Carol Burnett sketch dragged out to feature length.

Alonso Duralde

Sarandon, Keaton and De Niro mesh beautifully, fully convincing as a trio of old friends and carting in lots of characterization that would be otherwise lacking in Zackham's rote screenplay.

The unnecessarily complicated plot would have been tough to squeeze into any movie, let alone a 90-minute one. Needless to say, it is quite choppy.

James Berardinelli

It's tired and dated with too few laughs to justify the stultifying attempts at drama and the impossible-to-swallow plot contortions.

For all its surface amiability, The Big Wedding might be one of the more frustrating films of the year.

Movie Mezzanine

Some scripts can be saved by a good cast that delivers the material with as much chutzpah as possible. And then there are some that are simply unsalvageably dreadful.

It's never too late to start acting like a family. Good movie! The one line that "The Big Wedding" straddles well is that between comedy and… More

The Big Wedding is a creepy and tasteless comedy that never seems to use any of its cast members to their advantage, instead throwing them into a story that… More

Pretty lame. Good cast is pretty much wasted. Katherine Heigl is quite brittle and you can guess her little secret early on. Amanda Seyfried is underused. Diane… More

I felt like I have seen this type of movie before and done much better than this. It reminded me of movies like Guess Who's Coming to Dinner, Death At A… More
