Elevator Pitch A bunch of friends go to a posh wedding, where two others meet, and so a second wedding takes place, and two of the guests find themselves in bed together on both occasions. But their romance is stillborn when the woman accepts a proposal from someone else, completely derailing their possible future together.
Content Well – quite a bit of time at weddings and at receptions, with lots of fun from the best man’s speeches. A lot of “will they won’t they”, and some “yes they will”, but no nudity and only implied sex.
A View This film did not cost a lot, and made a fortune. Mostly British actors doing what they are still doing today, although some are not with us now. I thought the music was terrible, and I only laughed a couple of times. Maybe it has not aged well, but I had a look though my “Romantic Comedy” category, and it is by no means the worst as it turns out.
