Storyline

Ex-maid of honor Eloise (Anna Kendrick) - having been relieved of her duties after being unceremoniously dumped by the best man via text - decides to hold her head up high and attend her oldest friend's wedding anyway. She finds herself seated at the 'random' table in the back of the ballroom with a disparate group of strangers, most of whom should have known to just send regrets (but not before sending something nice off the registry). As everyone's secrets are revealed, Eloise learns a thing or two from the denizens of Table 19. Friendships - and even a little romance - can happen under the most unlikely circumstances. Written by Fox Searchlight Pictures

Goofs

The nanny often brings up a small toy bird that she bought for the bride while she was in New York. She said that the girl cherished the bird so much that she probably still had it. Later in the movie, the nanny was telling a story to Eloise that Teddy was jealous of his sister's bird and wanted one of his own, so next time she was in New York she bought one for him. She said he played with it for a day and then she never saw it again. Then, later, when the bride and groom finally visit table 19, the nanny asks the bride about the bird, and she says, "Oh, no. I lost mine the next day, so Teddy gave me his." This doesn't fit in with the time line given by the nanny in her stories. See more »

The View from the Cheap Seats
5 March 2017 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This movie is what you'd get if you took Robert Altman's A WEDDING, crossed it with a romantic comedy and took the characters from the people at the lowest-ranked table: people who, as Anna Kendrick's character asserts," should have had the sense to 'Decline with Regret' after choosing a gift from the registry." The characters include Miss Kendrick, the ex-maid of honor and ex-girlfriend of the bride's brother/groom's best man; Lisa Kudrow & Craig Robinson, a married couple with a distant business relationship with the bride's father; Tony Revoloro, a teenager who has been invited for no clear reason and shown up on the grounds of plot convenience; June Squibb, the bride's ex-nanny and Oscar nominee; and a storklike Stephen Merchant, who comes from a halfway house of some description. Together, they will reveal their problems, come together, engage in comedy of humiliation.

It's a pleasant, low-key comedy. While no ground-breaker, there are enough funny moments and it avoids the Big Moment which typically ends these moves and cements the romance, causing me to leave the theater remarking "I give them three weeks." Miss Squibb and Mr. Merchant offer the most amusing turns.

It will also probably flop and be forgotten. Miss Kendrick's sequel to 50 SHADES OF GREY opened to bad numbers and is largely gone by now. The appearance of this movie in theaters three weeks later argues they intended to piggyback onto the success they anticipated. Instead, it tanked and this got the called-for wide release, but since the failure was "obviously" Miss Kendrick's fault, there was no major campaign for this movie. This will confirm to the suits that it's all Miss Kendrick's fault. Her career will go into eclipse. I hope to see it emerge from darkness; she is a very engaging actress.
