Storyline

Don and Ellie were once married and have two children, Lyla and Jared. They adopt a boy from Colombia, Alejandro. Eventually they would divorce, Ellie would move away and Don would hook up with Bebe, Ellie's best friend. When Alejandro is about to get married, he informs Don and Ellie that he never told his natural mother who is so traditional that they got divorced. And she is coming for the wedding so he asks them if they can pretend to still be married. Don and Ellie reluctantly agree to it and Bebe moves out who is also upset that Don doesn't want to commit. Lyla who is married is going through a rough patch in her marriage. And Jared who hasn't had much luck with women finds himself attracted to Alejandro's extremely sensual sister, Nuria.

A bore despite the stellar cast
2 August 2013 | by Gordon-11See all my reviews

This film is about the eventful wedding of a young man, when his devout Catholic biological mother turns up for the wedding.

"The Big Wedding" sounds interesting, and might even have the potential to be another "My Big Fat Greek Wedding". With the super stellar cast, I thought it could not go wrong. But it did. The characters are so poorly developed, that they appear so empty. Each of them occupy only a small amount of screen time to make viewers care about them. they are just empty vessels for hollow and unfunny jokes, and each time the jokes fall flat. The wedding may be eventful, but not theatrical or entertaining. It it's such a pity that it turned out to be a bore despite the super cast.
