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

Co-stars Lisa Kudrow and Craig Robinson previously worked with each other in an episode of Friends (1994). Robinson's character was the one who enabled the possibility for Kudrow's character to change her name from Phoebe to 'Princess Consuela Bananahammock'. See more »
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 »
A comedy film about a group of wedding attendees that all bond with each other, after being seated together at a table for undesirables. It was directed by Jeffrey Blitz (who's also helmed such critically acclaimed indie flicks as the 2002 documentary 'SPELLBOUND', and the 2007 quirky comedy 'ROCKET SCIENCE'). It was co-written by Blitz and Jay and Mark Duplass. The movie stars Anna Kendrick, Craig Robinson, Lisa Kudrow, June Squibb, Stephen Merchant, Tony Revolori and Wyatt Russell. It's received a limited theatrical release at the Box Office, and it's also gotten mostly negative reviews from critics. I enjoyed it to a certain extent.
Eloise McGarry (Kendrick) was recently dumped by her boyfriend, Teddy (Russell), through a text. Teddy is a groomsman at his sister's wedding, that Eloise was also supposed to be a bridesmaid in. Eloise attends the wedding anyway, and she's seated with a group of other people that the wedding party was also hoping wouldn't attend. The group of misfits bond during the course of the ceremony.
The film is quirky and funny at times, but it's definitely far from hilarious. The characters are pretty well developed though, and the roles are all well cast. The movie is actually more impressive when it's trying to be serious, and emotional, than when it's supposed to be funny. Overall the film is definitely a bit of a mixed bag, but I'd say it's still worth seeing (but maybe only on video, or cable TV).
