Storyline

Audrey attempts to stop her brother from marrying a young French woman during their rescheduled wedding weekend in the Hamptons, which happens to be the same weekend she turns 40. Sister-in-laws-to-be from two very different cultures and stages of life clash and struggle to connect and get along. Because of this tension, Audrey loses control and attempts to undermine the wedding, only to realize she can't stand in the way of true love.

Uneven but still enjoyable
19 December 2020 | by mtasurferSee all my reviews

There's much to like in the sophomore effort from director Amy Miller Gross- snappy, realistic dialogue, and unsurprisingly solid chemistry from the leads and a poignant performance from the late lovable Mark Blum who I've seen in films since Desperately Seeking Susan. The first 40 minutes or so, as characters are being introduced are excellent, and I really loved the use of wedding-invite-styled scene dividers. The film loses steam in the middle as Alicia Silverstone's character increases her aggression towards her future sister-in-law, so much that she lost my sympathy. The central conflict resolves rather abruptly. However, the final scene between Tom Everett Scott and Alicia was one of the best in the film though. I give this film higher marks since I see it was from a newer director. Production value is excellent - refined music that supports the emotion and tasteful cinematography.
