**Brilliant, but panned by predictable critics**
(SPOILERS TOWARDS END!)
I don’t always agree with (or heed warnings) from movie critics; perhaps because I used to be one myself in a nation wide magazine many years ago — but if a movie has a 40% rating on Metacritic, I admit it rarely bodes well. Still I watched this, largely due to the involvement of several favorite actors and the script having been written by the Duplass brothers.
I found it almost instantly both funny and moving, and the longer I watched, the more confused I became as to why most critics had been lukewarm or downright dismissive of it. I figured it had to be mostly due to the genre blend of comedy and more dramatic issues, and that probably most of the criticism had been along the usual lines of “can’t make up it’s mind’, etc. But even so, that didn’t add up to a meager 40% rating, with such a clever script and great acting.
When the credits rolled, I knew instantly why: A happy ending…
It all mostly works out in the end for the oddball protagonists. Critics in general can’t stand it. If a movie has had a degree of realism and/or several dark or borderline dark-ish issues brought up along the way, critics tend to go ******* unless it all ends in misery, or largely unresolved, or at the very least in ambiguity. God forbid you walk away from such a movie actually feeling good; that equals ‘cheesy’ in most reviewers book. Was it realistic that most of the people involved got a happy, somewhat romantic ending? Of course not, but though the movie tackles several ‘real’ issues within the comedy, I found the ending perfectly fitting with the tone of it. Critics often use the word ‘predictable’ about anything that has a hint of romantic comedy in it, but I’d say, there are few things as predictable as movie critics in general.
If you want to read what I consider a spot on review for this, check out Empire Magazine, who went against the stream and gave it 4 out of 5 stars.
**It was not a table of honour!**
I thought it was some B movie. Expecting anything from it is like a total waste. But that was not the case. I was surprised how simple it was, yet very entertaining. Not all the small films like this would do the same magic. Everything in the was like I already seen in other films, even though I enjoyed it thoroughly.
It was a one-day event tale and in the backdrop of a wedding. In that, the film focused on one particular table, the table number 19 on the outskirt the dining hall. They all came from different background and never met before. They learn about each other, and their personal issues open up during the cerebration. Apart from that, they mess up a few things and later try to fix it, that all comes into play before it reaches the end.
From the director of ‘Rocket Science’, which came a decade ago, also starred by Anna Kendrick. I think he is a fine director, at least in small comedies with the good quality screenplay. So he should be doing more feature films than the television series. I was impressed by Kendrick. Her choices of films might not be the greatest, but she’s almost there and very soon going to give a career best for sure. The remaining cast was funnily good.
I think this film deserves a sequel. Because the film characters are very distinctive and has left behind a lot about them which need to be revealed. Sequel or prequel, it does not matter, but I’ll be surely looking for one. Look at its cost, just $5 million. Big production houses can give away such tiny amount without expecting any returns.
You might see it rated low everywhere, but for me, it is a good comedy. One of the best small budget films. Yeah, the end was very clichéd, but acceptable for such film. I would definitely suggest it for those who won’t anticipate in films they watch. Particularly if you prefer simple storyline and a few laughs, it is the one.
Brilliant, intelligent comedy. Does not disappoint
So I loved this movie! It’s a brilliant single setting-ish script about various “reject” guests at a wedding table with Anna Kendrick in the lead. It’s like “The Breakfast Club” of wedding movies.
The script is witty, intelligent and the attention to detail for the set, specifically with the wedding band and their selection of songs, was sublime. Bravo to the Duplass brothers on pulling together a very well-made and well-thought out film.
Lisa Kudrow shows she still has great talent and her deadpan comedy is still funny. And the pairing of Kudrow with Craig Robinson as her husband was genius, they actually pair off of each other really great.
Anna Kendrick’s character Elsie dreads going to her former best friend/former boyfriend’s sister’s wedding. She meets the other rejects at the table and explains the pecking order of the wedding tables. Elsie meets a dashing stranger Huck, confronts the former boyfriend/bride’s brother, and the Table 19 guests have quite the day with unexpected twists.
A just-good-enough rom-com
It’s not formulaic, it’s actually interesting most of the time and it has a few nice jokes sprinkled around.
The happy-ending is way too cheesy and actually ruins a lot of the movie, as, up to that point, it was mostly realistic. I mean, just one story of how a guy gave his little sister a toy when they were kids doesn’t erase the fact that he’s a jerk and, among other things, dumped Anna Kendrick over the phone. It’s way too little for her to just “click” and chase him to the lake and shout out her eternal love for him across said lake. If they were to actually show Anna Kendrick’s baby-poppa jump into water when she called him across the lake, it would have been _terrible_ (as is, it’s merely bad). The happy ending for Lisa Kudrow felt much more real, while the happy ending for the Indian boy was also off.
Another problem with the movie is that Anna Kendrick didn’t do her job as well as one would expect. She’s not nearly as lovably quirky as she can be. She’s not pretty or hot, so, what we’re left with is not all that interesting or likeable, thus it’s hard to participate in her struggles. Quite frankly, you feel more connected to Amanda Crew, who, while being a jerk, is doing a good interpretation of “I’m hotter, yet this jerk choose her, but I’m gonna show her now”.
But, with it’s several major and some more minor flaws, it’s still good-enough, if you take into account other rom-coms.
