Is It Any Good?

Kids say: Not yet rated

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.
