Nothing goes better with popcorn, friends, and a nice glass of wine than a good ol' wedding flick.
Wedding movies are needed in the cinematic world; they may not take our breath away, but you can watch them no matter what time of year it is or what mood you're in because they are the perfect amount of fun, relatable and enjoyable.
There are just too many classic wedding movies that could make our favourite's list: Wedding Crashers, 27 Dresses, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, The Wedding Singer and more, but we have come up with our top four!
To celebrate the release of Table 19, check out Cineplex's favourite wedding movies below:

The big winner at hte box office this weekend was M Night Shyamalan's split personality thriller Split starring James McAvoy, Betty Buckley (!!!) and The Witch's Anya-Taylor Joy. Hidden Figures continued to show signs of a hefty box office tally to come with another very low percentage drop and Sing has become the biggest grossing movie of all time that never hit #1 at the box office, surpassing the previous record holder My Big Fat Greek Wedding. Martin Scorsese's Silence has gone wide but is still struggling to find takers and The Founder, after a long delayed release, opened as well to $3+ million. Meanwhile 20th Century Women added 600+ theaters and is finally ready for your eyeballs and you Must see it. It's marvelous. Silence added over 800 screens but to little traction from moviegoers.

That’s a marked improvement over recent weeks as the weekend total upticked ahead of 2016 for the first time since before Christmas. The lesson is always the same: audiences like it when they get something completely different.

It doesn’t take long to realize that the title of the Georgian drama “My Happy Family” is ironic. Directors Nana Ekvtimishvili and Simon Grob plunge into the restless lifestyle of 52-year-old Manana (Ia Shuvliashvili), the matriarch of a cramped and multigenerational household that includes her husband, grown children, parents and various in-laws who pull her from every angle. And it doesn’t take long for Mañana to realize that to escape the mayhem, much to the shock of everyone around her, she can simply move out.
The ease with which she embarks on this new stage, even as it baffles her entire community, speaks to the remarkable blend of comedy and sadness that characterizes this sophomore effort from the directors of “In Bloom.” It’s at once a celebration of individuality and its potential to unnerve those who resist it.
Manana’s life is defined by routine. She’s a pinball in her apartment, »

Lifetime’s remake of the classic 1988 tearjerker Beaches aired Saturday night — with Broadway star Idina Menzel and Big Momma’s House Nia Long stepping into the iconic roles of entertainer C.C. Bloom and her aristocratic Bff Hillary Whitney — made famous on screen by Bette Midler and Barbara Hershey.
The made-for-tv movie did an excellent job of capturing the ups and downs of a 30-year friendship, staying true to most of plot points in the Garry Marshall feature and Iris Rainer Dart’s original book. (Spoiler alert: that death is still there, and it’s just as devastating).

One thing we all look forward to every year is our birthday, and we here at Cineplex like to celebrate the birthdays of movies too!
In 2017, there are tons of memorable films that are hitting milestone ages. While it makes us feel a little old, it also gives us a reason to look back on some of our favourite films and have epic movie marathons (oftentimes, ones where we know all of the lines).
We did some research and compiled a master list of all of the notable films that are celebrating big anniversaries this year. Among the crop are films like Titanic, Blade Runner, The Graduate, and more.
Check out the best movie anniversaries of 2017 below and start planning your movie-themed parties accordingly! »

Here at Et, we love an anniversary -- whether it’s the 20th anniversary of Scream or Clueless, 10 years in the life of The Hills or the magical time making No Doubt’s Magic Kingdom 20 years later. And as we settle in 2017, it’s time to look ahead at all those upcoming moments that will have you saying, “I remember when…”
Here’s a brief look at our favorite TV and film milestones of 2017:
While fans are crying over Mandy Moore’s Golden Globe-nominated performance on NBC’s hit new series This Is Us, it was just 15 years ago that they cried over her performance in the weepy adaptation of Nicholas Sparks’ book about a girl with cancer who falls in love with a rebellious classmate.
