The Wedding Party
Steve finds himself in a sticky financial situation and can’t commit to his girlfriend, Jacqui, until he sorts it out. In order to sort it out, he decides to marry a Russian woman who is seeking residency in Australia. This will fix his financial woes, but it doesn’t do anything to help his real relationship.
Steve’s family doesn’t know that this is a business transaction and they become involved in organising a big wedding with all the trappings that the bride and groom were seeking to avoid. How will Steve explain all this to Jacqui?
I was a little underwhelmed by this film, but it was better than the last wedding flick with Lawson. The family members are great and I really enjoyed Nadine Garner and Essie Davis.
Sometimes Australian rom coms set their own agendas, and don’t follow the US formula too strictly. This film did that. Although it followed the basic rom com rules, it was obvious where the director made her own moves and deviated from the path of conservative America.
Not one of the better ones I’ve seen but still worth a watch.
