In this hilariously raunchy comedy, dysfunctional American siblings Alice and Paul along with their ever-optimistic mom, are invited to the British wedding of their estranged half-sister Eloise as a chance for them to reconnect as - more of less - adults, and learn to love each other like they once did.

We had two non-starters going into this film so it was really just a relief to find something that sustained our attention and was watchable to the end. It’s a nice family comedy, with a great trio of Ben, Allison and Kristen, all being slightly messy adults that have stuff to work through. It’s not hugely funny but has its moments, it’s not totally moving but there are definitely heartwarming scenes… it’s just a sort of middle-of-the-road decent watch, no strong opinions one way or the other.

Rating: 3 / 5
