Roman Catholic weddings are very rarely held outside a Church. Father Tom is dressed in clerical street clothes; He should be wearing a surplice-a white garment over his clericals, and a stole--a long a long scarf-like strip which is required when a priest administers a sacrament. Catholic ceremonies never ask for objections--as the proposed wedding is announced three weeks prior at Sunday. Finally, the priest does not "pronounce" the couple marries.

This is a different kind of comedy -- maybe too subtle for some people's tastes -- but anyone who appreciates the dark humor in "Raising Arizona" or "Fargo" should give this movie a viewing.
Casey Affleck portrays a perfectly bewildered, hopeless, helpless suspect in the murder of The Worst Woman (Formerly) Alive, Mona Dearly. There are dozens of hilarious, subtle, and easily missed lines and facial expressions throughout the movie which define the many characters inhabiting a small town in upstate New York where Yugo once tested its cars. The town itself, and most of its denizens, are like the Yugo: simple, no- frills, unassuming, more than a little deficient in many ways, but unique and endearing in an odd, pitifully likable way.
If seeing a Yugo on the road today brings a smile to your face, see this movie. If seeing a Yugo on the road today makes you angry, see something else.
