5:46Enjoying the Italian Tom Jones.
8:59Man of Honour.
10:55“It turns out penne is just the Italian for penne.” Aisling Bea swinging in and stealing it with her first line.
15:30Brian was late and his hair looks exactly the same. Amazing.
21:25“Nothing could spoil this day.” Jinxed it.
28:39Having to basically do a wedding twice because it’s dual-language.
30:47What the bloody hell does she see in him?
34:11Tim Key is hilarious.

1:03:37This can’t be the version that goes right.
1:12:14“Why does everyone keep hitting me?”

1:22:16Hehehe, I hope the coffee spitting scene didn’t have too many takes.

1:35:51It would have worked if it wasn’t for those pesky kids.

Thoughts

This movie could have been brilliant but in the end it was just okay. The premise is great, an interesting concept, but it’s a shame that you only really get to delve into two of the potential possibilities when there are at least eight good stories there to tell.

The more I think about it, as well, the more I’m disappointed how the women come across in the movie. Olivia Munn was very underused and basically quiet and grumpy for most of it. Aisling Bea is her usual excellent self, but as a character is supposed to be clingy and annoying, despite being lovely. Frieda Pinto’s character didn’t work at all, and the bride was the cause of all the problems in the first place.

It was laugh out loud in places, but as a whole, it fell a little short.

Rating: 3 / 5
