In Rhode Island, in the Italian-American family Sposato, Danni is going to marry Geoffrey Brancato. Danni lives with her parents Santo and Irena and is the third and 'the good daughter' of her family. Her three sisters come for her wedding: the older Nikki, a successful TV starlet, who works in a TV show very similar to 'Baywatch'. Nikki brings her boy-friend and manager Marty Weinberg to be introduced to her family. Chrissy, who deals with investments in Wall Street; and the rebel younger Toni , who plays in a rock-and- roll band with her lesbian lover Amy Kayne. Together, they have meals in the restaurant of Tom Terranova, the former and first love of Nikki. Many discussions of the Sposato family show wounds not healed, when the characters expose their real feelings. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

A romance/ life movie about 4 sisters trying to come to terms with themselves and each other.
10 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I work at a video store and thus get free rentals. I picked up "Kiss the Bride" on a whim. Lately I have been coming on IMDb right as I start a movie and when I saw the 5.5 rating I almost didn't bother watching it, but as I had nothing better to do I watched it anyway (anything is better than homework right?) Anyway, I started watching it and was pleasantly surprised. It is a fairly light hearted romance, but it had such a true life aspect to it that i felt that anyone could relate to someone in the film and thus it would resonate that much closer to people. You have these four very different sisters who grew up in a very traditional Catholic Italian family, they went their separate ways when they reached adulthood and are all now reuniting for the wedding of the one sister who never left the family or the families values behind. It shows all the closeness sisters can have with out being syrupy and while showing the conflicts and the competitiveness they feel to each other. People have complained it is a rip off of "My Big Fat Greek Wedding". But it is not. This is a much more simpler film. Yes you have a big family and the groom-to-be becomes a part of it but this movie is just more realistic. I'd definitely recommend it to someone who wants to laugh a little maybe cry a bit and just have a good time watching a fun movie. It's not over the top like "My Best Friends Wedding" and it just is a gem of a film. I don't know just my thoughts and feelings...
