What do the critics say about The Wedding Year?
Claudia Puig (FilmWeek (KPCC – NPR Los Angeles))
A slight romantic comedy… It does feel like we’ve seen this before, but the [the stars] do have nice romantic chemistry.
Jackie K. Cooper (jackiekcooper.com)
Sarah Hyland gives it her all but this story of the marriage circuit never quite connects with its audience.
Alex Saveliev (Film Threat)
Robert Luketic… churns out another generically-named, generic rom-com! Lo and behold, The Wedding Year may just be his most generic one yet!
Mike McGranaghan (Aisle Seat)
Within just a few minutes, the movie establishes that it’s going to be artificial, predictable, and shallow – and then it proceeds to follow through on that promise.
Rich Cline (Shadows on the Wall)
While much of the movie is rather corny and predictable, there are some hilarious sequences along the way, mainly thanks to a cast adept at finding the funny side in their characters.
