Sweet movie
Verified purchase
Sometimes an Alan Alda movie is a code word for an Alan Alda Love Fest. Not so with Betsy's Wedding. Alda wrote and directed a sweet movie that isn't exactly a slice of life (the characters are too upper class for most of us to relate to), but is highly entertaining. I love how Alda loves his daughters. It would have been nice to have a dad like that.

This movie was surprisingly funny and timeless
Verified purchase
This movie was surprisingly funny and timeless. The family members are lovable and the situations are realistic!! This movie hasn't aged yet. I ordered this movie just to make a minimum to get same day shipping and thought I would give it a try just because it was Molly Ringwald and the plot seemed interesting. Glad I watched it! The acting was top notch, nothing cheap. The plot was well done and the scenes were smooth and just right. A good comedy story to watch whether alone or with others.

A fun movie

Such a fun sweet movie. The characters are well defined and the cast could not have been better for the grouping. They worked very well together.

Funny, cute, slice of life with memorable if stereotyped characters. Excellent cast.

A very cute movie.
Verified purchase
Saw it 'years ago' in the theater. The big surprise was the surround sound effect, at the end of the movie.
I remember everyone in the theater, who probably weren't familiar with "surround sound", as I was, "turning around to look behind them, at the end of the movie's "wedding scene" !!!

Meet Stevie Dee!
Verified purchase
One of my favorite movies. The ensemble is great, but Anthony LaPaglia steals the show as Stevie Dee. So please, watch this movie, if it would not inconvenience you in any way.
