This is downright painful

I willingly admit to being one of the biggest fans of Deborah (formerly Debbie)Gibson in the world. I also like Dom Deluise very much. I just wish both of them had passed on this alleged comedy.

The movie centers around the wedding reception of a badly mismatched couple and their friends and families. Unfortunately there isn't a single likable character in the film--including Deborah herself. How this film can describe itself as a comedy I have no clue. There isn't so much as a chuckle in the whole affair and the only thing worthy of applause is when this seemingly endless drudgery finally reaches its conclusion.

Ms. Gibson has made a couple of feature films which are very worthwhile, she is a rising light in the world of legitimate theater and listening to her sing is like listening to an angel. But even near perfection can slip up sometimes. Making this motion picture qualifies as a slip into a bottomless chasm. Avoid it like the plague!
