A Great Movie, 15 April 2005
Author: letrptjohn from United States

I rented three DVDs the other night and saw "Kiss the Bride" sitting on the shelf with plenty of available copies. I grabbed one because it was there. I thought it would be a funny wedding movie my wife would like to see. I put off watching it until I had seen the other two "great works of art" I had rented.

"Kiss the Bride" is one of the best movies I have ever seen. It is perfection. Anyone that has ever had a Mom or a Dad, sister, brother, or came from a "family" will find themselves somewhere in this movie.

The cast is outstanding. The "well-known" and the "unknown" together. Vanessa Parise should be, or will be, a very powerful voice in the film industry. I hope she has the same budget for her next film. Lack of funds makes creativity the only means to a great film. She is very creative. Don't give any more money. She doesn't need it. There isn't one wasted moment in the entire movie. It's great, start to finish.
