Storyline

Muffin's wedding to Dino Corelli is to be a big affair. Except the aging priest isn't too sure of the ceremony, only the families actually turn up as the Corelli Italian connection is suspect, security guards watch the gifts rather over-zealously, and Dino's grandma expires in bed just as the reception starts. Could be quite an occasion. Written by Jeremy Perkins {J-26}

Hardly a fiasco
11 November 2000 | by See all my reviews

This is actually one of Altman's most underrated films from his late seventies period. I have been catching it a lot on the Romance channel (of all places) recently .It is set during a wedding and the two families who comprise the story. Good ensemble acting as we would expect from an Altman film, especially Paul Dooley, Mia Farrow, Carol Burnett and Lilian Gish. While not in the same vein as say Nashville, it is definitively worth watching, especially for Altman aficionados.
