April's Shower is a comedy about love, romance and expectation. The story follows unpredictable twists and turns until it climaxes with a madcap finale. The hilarity belies the poignancy of truth and love and the laughter is punctuated with honesty, tenderness and pain. At the beginning, the cast assembles for a seemingly traditional wedding shower. The action is captured inside an eclectic, three-story craftsman - itself serving as a central character to the story.

Nothing really spectacular and memorable about this comedy. The number of different characters that get thrown at the viewer once the movie starts is remarkable. Too bad that during the movie the character numbers just keep piling up and it gets quite confusing who's who and what the relationship dynamics of each character are. Some of the characters don't really get explored at all so, I guess, they are in the movie for comedic purposes, but they don't play that role very well, which in turn spoils the movie somehow. There are some okay jokes here and there, but most of them feel plain.
The same can be said about the acting - decent performances are mixed with poor ones and the result is nothing special.
