Video Film Review: THE BIG WEDDING offers small blessings


How many A-listers does it take to change a lightbulb in “The Big Wedding?”

Today’s panelists, Mimi Spillane and Trish Dominguez join forces with our host, Marie Juliette Steinsvold, to exchange views, not vows about the comedy, The Big Wedding at BBQ favorite, Harley’s Smokeshack in Hell’s Kitchen, New York City.

With it’s all-star ensemble cast, the comedy, The Big Wedding, is a remake (surprise!) of a 2006 French film titled, “Mon frère se marie” (My Brother is Married). This adaptation is written and directed by Justin Zackham who also created the script for the film, “The Bucket List.” This is his directorial debut. In it, he features such headliners as Robert De Niro, Susan Sarandon, Diane Keaton and Robin Williams.

Katherine Heigl, Amanda Seyfried, Topher Grace, Christine Ebersole and Ben Barnes round out the star-power in this high voltage of bewilderment. I might add that one of the biggest stars that deserves the most accolades is the beautiful estate in Stamford, Connecticut where this movie was filmed. Kudos to the location scout who discovered that gem.  Is this film a not-to-be-missed early summer must see? Check out our review above to get the lowdown.
