Emotional Tank Charger!
30 May 2008 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

Second Hand Wedding is the kind of film that could make a 40-something, 6', 120kg rugby fan sniffle & wipe away more than one spontaneous affliction of "eye leakage" (NOT crying). Not me you understand, just a figure of speech... In the genre of 4 Weddings, Nottinghill, Love Actually, SHW is a roller-coaster happy/sad/happy ride which had me smiling inanely all the way home - in fact I'm smiling again as I type this review! Great locations (Raumati/Paraparaumu never looked so enticing), great casting (Geraldine Brophy as the Mum is the one you want to adopt and take home !) and the total package does not disappoint in any way. All up a total and absolute emotional tank filler. It'll make you feel good about life. It'll make you smile at strangers on the way home. It'll make you want to get up early the next morning to take your wife a cup of tea in bed. It'll make you want to write a review for it even though your less eloquent than you want to be and have never written a review before. Got it? Its that good.
