This is possibly one of my favourite family comedy movies it has everything you could ask for a great cast and script will leave you in tears laughing.

 

Really I can’t tell you how many times I have watched this movie mainly cause I am a huge fan as you know of Diane Keaton. So basically within this big family one of the kids is getting married. This is the adopted son and his biological mum is coming and she is a devout Catholic so that is when things start getting hilarious and complicated!

The cast is great in this movie and Diane Keaton and Robert De Niro are comedy gold as a divorced couple who don’t hate each other. Their characters just have this great interaction for example there is this great scene where Don says something about Ellie’s mum and she punches him the nose you just gotta watch it Don. Not only that you have Susan Sanderson as the girlfriend of Don and Robin Williams as the alcoholic Catholic priest.

I think the reason I love this film so much is the plot of this huge dysfunctional family and them coming together for the wedding. It is such a relatable scenario to everyone and their families. As Ben Barnes says ‘they are all coming out of the wood work!’.  LOL! He means everyone’s issues appear out of nowhere and you get this great family drama and comedy element which the cast nailed. There is a flow to the film that felt natural and improvised to do with the humour which didn’t seem scripted at all.

Overall, this film is a comedy I always go back to. It’s like The Birdcage because it has that uplifting feel to it and you feel that your family is not that crazy. The ensemble of cast worked so well because they played off each other’s strengths and the script was such a good foundation it allowed them to run free with it. All in all a great family comedy with something that everyone can enjoy and laugh at.

As usual let me know if your planning to watch it or have watched it let me know what you thought below!
