A delightful light little rom-com. Watched during my trip in Greece as obligation and enjoyed myself more than I expected. Glad to see it had the success of did. A crowd pleaser that's formulaic as they come.
If I think about it now, this has a very un-progressive plot from a feminist point of view. But, knowing what it is, I enjoy it. It is too funny and most people that have a big family can relate to the family parties/reunions/interactions scenes.
There are some really charming parts in this movie but there is literally 0 conflict whatsoever/any reason to remain engaged bcs from the onset everything is so cookie-cutter. Which probably isnt the point but personally I need more out of a movie? I rly wanna like it more esp. bcs men seem to dislike it and im abt that life, and theres lots of smaller stuff I did like, but overall its just v v standard and below :/.
If you think about it, this film is an ultimate example of female wish f fulfillment movie. For most of the characters life, she's unattractive and single, then when she sees a guy she likes, she suddenly becomes beautiful and gets his attention. They have a perfect wedding and a happy marriage.
