Funny and insightful stuff
24 March 2002 | by (Washington, DC) – See all my reviews

You aren't sure what to expect when seeing a very independent documentary about marriage. It could be sentimental, preachy, or even sad -- but funny? This movie will make you laugh out loud -- especially if you've done the big wedding thing. I hear that the makers of this movie really just interviewed their friends. If so, they run in a very funny crowd.

Although you probably won't see this in Blockbuster anytime soon, it could easily play to the general public. It is very professional for the local art-movie festival scene. People would watch if it played on HBO or Showtime.

Mild criticisms: the movie tried to partition itself into sections, but it still lacked direction and cohesiveness. Also, it left a couple of loose strings. What ever happened to the woman who wrote the article against weddings. Did she stay with her partner, or did they ever get married?

Nonetheless, the makers of this movie are in the right field.
