A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this movie.
Many discussions revolving around dissatisfaction with spouses and, specifically, the lack of sex within committed relationships. A wife propositions her husband's friend. A group of guys attempts to hire a prostitute for their friend, an act that lands them in jail. Some sexist remarks, particularly about women's bodies.
Violence & Scariness
Some fistfights; a gun is shot; a man nearly punches his wife, and she pushes and shoves him.

Sex, Romance & Nudity
Both innuendo and much franker talk (detailed discussion of orgasms, many references to penis length, etc.); suggestive dancing; some sequences depict -- or at least heavily imply (through sound) -- various sex acts. Some dream sequences feature partial nudity.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this indie comedy (released in theaters with the title Sing Now or Forever Hold Your Peace) tackles adult subjects -- namely sex and marriage. For the most part, it does so with humor (or at least an admirable attempt at humor). But it's also quite explicit, with many references that may be confusing, crude, or way too weird for younger teens. There's a fair amount of "locker room" talk, as well as drinking and smoking (both cigarettes and pot).

Is It Any Good?
The Big Chill, Diner, American Graffiti -- those were memorable buddy movies; WEDDING WEEKEND, unfortunately, isn't. Which isn't to say that it's hopeless. In fact, some scenes are surprisingly funny and poignant. And the singing's not half-bad.
While writer/director/producer Bruce Leddy shows some talent for dialogue, he reveals a tin ear for originality. We've seen a lot of this material before, and with far less sexism involved. When Leddy has an opportunity to dig into some meaty material, he goes for the quick laugh instead. What saves Wedding Weekend from utter mediocrity is the affinity among the actors. The men exude an easy rapport that sometimes eludes even the best movies. But that alone does not a good movie make -- this one's simply fair.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
