Bier makes an abrupt 360 here and visits the world of romantic comedy, where she got her start some 20 years ago, and creates an enjoyable summer date film. Would be easy to take potshots at this one with its convenient and familiar script but...its just so enjoyable. Dyrholm is great here as is Brosnan who is just plain yummy (sorry). Wonderful Palermo set wedding film that offers nothing new but did it have to?
I cannot believe I read this could be the return of The Dogma: was it a joke? True, there is a wedding, already found in Dogma features of the past. But there is actually a soundtrack! With mandolino-music! And with Dino and his 'That's Amore'! And there's this Hollywood actor (although that would not defeat the strict Dogma rules, I think) you know, the 'worst actor in a supporting role' in Mamma Mia, that one!!!!
Although everyone seems to dislike this one, I think it was wonderful. It quite helps you out of a bad mood, or relax and sit back after a hectic day. Which I think movies should be able to do every once in a while. It was a bit too sweet and lovey-dovey maybe, but I thought it was cute.
