The Big Wedding

>Mature 18+ | 50 % Say It's Worth Your Time

Don (Robert De Niro) and Ellie Griffin (Diane Keaton) are long-divorced, but when their adopted son's ultraconservative biological mother unexpectedly decides to fly in for the young man's nuptials, they are forced to play the happy couple to avoid an awkward situation. With their heartily amused friends and adult children looking on, Don and Ellie must confront their past, present and future -- and hopefully avoid killing each other in the process.

    This is a comedy which is supposed to add a spoonful of sugar to help the medicine go down. This "medicine" however is debauchery, nudity, fetishes, fornication, unfaithfulness, misogyny, and profanity. No amount of sugar helps this medicine go down smoothly.
