Rock the Reception is fun and utterly charming. Lots of the couples have sweet stories to share -- for example, one is planning their big number in honor of the groom's recently deceased mother, who loved weddings and dancing. And while the routines aren't spectacular, they're reasonably well-executed and a tribute to the D'Umos, who not only create something that's fun to watch but also that's well within these decidedly non-expert dancers' limited skills. Ultimately, it's just a fun bit of fluffy entertainment.

Did we miss something on diversity?
