They might have been in a cinematic classic in The Godfather but Robert De Niro and Diane Keaton star together In New Year’s Eve Mark two, or by it’s proper name The Big Wedding it’s one they’ll want to forget about,watch the trailer. The Big Wedding tells the story of Divorced couple (De Niro & Keaton) who are forced to play happy couple again when their adopted son (Ben Barnes) invites his deeply religious biological mother to his wedding which signals a weekend of utter chaos at the wedding celebrations.
This film is further evidence of De Niro’s career dwindling from films with 50 Cents to even lower depths another film with Katherine Hiegl , the makings of the sequel-esque film in the vein New Year’s Eve which was the sequel to Valentine’s Day. The all star cast are there Ben Barnes,Amanda Seyfried, Susan Sarandon, Topher Grace, and Robin Williams, though this film’s story structured compare to the Gary Marshall film with the humour more slapstick. Actually this looks dumb, though if I was to see this I would only see it for Robin Williams who looks the funniest in it.This doesn’t mean to say this film is any good but it looks a lot better than New Years Eve and with so many Oscar winners/nominees in the cast this may have a better chance than other similar genre films.
If The Big Wedding is your type of film you can catch it in UK&Ireland November 9th.
With an all-star cast lead by Diane Keaton, Robert De Niro, Susan Sarandon, Robin Williams, Katherine Heigl, Amanda Seyfried and Topher Grace, THE BIG WEDDING is an uproarious romantic comedy about a charmingly modern family trying to survive a weekend wedding celebration that has the potential to become a full blown family fiasco. To the amusement of their adult children and friends, long divorced couple Don and Ellie Griffin (De Niro and Keaton) are once again forced to play the happy couple for the sake of their adopted son’s wedding after his ultra conservative biological mother unexpectedly decides to fly halfway across the world to attend. With all of the wedding guests looking on, the Griffins are hilariously forced to confront their past, present and future – and hopefully avoid killing each other in the process.
