In "My First Wedding" ("Mi primera boda"), Jewish-born Adrián and Catholic-born Leonora have finally reached their wedding day. Instead of gracefully embracing matrimony, Adrián spends the hours leading up to the ceremony trying to postpone it, not because he's got cold feet (or does he?), but because he's clumsily lost both his and his bride-to-be's sacred wedding rings. Disaster ensues in director Ariel Winograd's winning comedy about the politics of the proverbial "Big Day." Written by

I don't know what people laughed about in "Mi primera boda". The conflict is so weak that you are wondering all the time "why didn't the main character (Hendler) did this or that", because everything he does is completely unrealistic and senseless.
The score is not in its right place. Some scenes have a "musical exaggeration". For example, Hendler is riding a horse and if you hear the music without the images you would think you are watching a Indiana Jones film. I don't know why, but this repeats until the end, and it's not funny.
The characters: I hate them all. Even Hendler and Oreiro, whom I admire very much . The movie introduces a lot of people, but we know very little about them at the end, except for three or four.
Well, You can clearly notice a "Death at the funeral" reference in this movie. But you don't see explanations in "Death at the funeral". What was that? Hendler and Oreiro, explaining the movie for you?, like if you had some kind of understanding problem or something. In one scene, Oreiro suddenly looks at the camera and talks, breaking all the climax. I felt I was watching a bad "The office" episode. I think you can tell this story without all that stuff.
Locations, photography and sound are perfect but the developing of the conflict is too lame. I didn't like it. 3/10
