My husband and I were looking for a lighthearted comedy for a date night movie and chose this one because we were intrigued by the all-star cast (DeNiro, Sarandon, Keaton, Katherine Heigl, Robin Williams....) After all, with such a lineup of heavy hitters, how can you go wrong?? Well, this movie STUNK, and we ended up turning it off and going to bed after 45 mins.
The dialogue was close to impossible to understand as most of it was mumbled, there was no character development, except that the characters were mostly depraved, immoral and lecherous. They manage to make a mockery of family ties, marriage and the church (and this was all in the first 45 minutes!!) DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME!!! Very disappointing.

Everything bad about Hollywood movies
Verified purchase
This movie is everything bad about Hollywood. Big names with bad scripts, predictable mayhem, the tired lie/pretend plot that is frustrating and not funny, overuse of sex as a substitute for creativity, etc. It was terrible from the first minute, but I couldn't stomach anymore at the restaurant scene with the divorced wife pretending to be the current wife, and the current wife pretending to be the server. I'd rather lose my rental money than subject myself to another minute. Really, really bad.

So disappointing - good actors with the worst story and script
Verified purchase
Bunch of immoral and dysfunctional storytelling, I can't believe anyone would want to star in this crummy movie. Really sad characters in a pretty setting. Cartoon antics, nothing resembling real life.

Shallow and depraved
Verified purchase
My instinct was to turn it off in the first ten minutes with the Catholic bashing, but despite presenting Catholicism so poorly, it did show that the church knows better than the depraved characters in the film. In their mind, sex is the peak of human behavior, marriage is dissoluble and fidelity, respect and self-control archaic notions. It only proved how wrong their notion of "women's lib" is and how repulsive and abusive sexual license is. For a world that claims, "we are not hurting anyone" this movie demonstrates how untrue that statement is. I almost thought it would turn around, but no, it only got worse. No depth, not compelling and utterly gross.

It's so irritating to watch a movie because of the cast and then have such a poor, contrived script. I can't imagine that any of the talent in this movie thought this was worthy entertainment. Robert DeNiro has really fallen down the rabbit hole with bad scripts. Looks like Diane Keaton is following him down there. There was nothing remotely likable about this movie.

If you want to see a NOT-funny movie about a bunch of wealthy, entitled, immoral, arrogant people without conscience, this is the one to watch!

I won't be relying on star-ratings again. 2550 reviews, 3-1/2 star average: NOT indicative of the piece of trash this is. If I had read the first few comments, I would have gotten a better picture of this disaster of a film,

This movie is one of the best movies I've ever had the pleasure of watching, It has an amazing, well built cast...the plot is really creative. The humor in this movie is EPIC. This is a movie that I can watch at any time no matter how I am feeling, this is a feel good movie with lots of heart. This movie is so honest about relationships, family dynamics, etc. I can't believe it's not 10/10 on certainly should be. I would give this movie not a only a 2 thumbs up but ALSO 7 stars, 5 just doesn't cover it.

Started with good possibilities, but ended as a bad mess :-(

The movie has some great stars: Robert De Niro, Diane Keaton, Susan Sarandon, Katherine Heigl! The beginning was kinda funny, and built up some anticipation as to how it was all going to work out.

(Minor SPOILERS below).

Unfortunately, the ending was shoddy and poorly thought up: The bridegroom's adopted dad and mom (aged to-be-grandparents) hit the sack after many years - on the morning of the wedding. The mom confesses sleeping with the bride's dad many years ago. The bride's mom is a bisexual woman who is interested in the mom and the dad's girlfriend! Not to mention, the bridegroom was an illegitimate child - because of his mom sleeping around. Of course, the groom's adopted brother is now in the bedroom with the groom's biological sister! AARGHH!!

The idea apparently was to show how people are sleeping around with each other all the time. <FacePalm>
