    In style and structure, it mimics an old-style studio effort, a culture-clashing comedy of manners that's tinged with melodrama and filmed in a smart progression of medium shots. show more

    As wedding stories go, it's an improvement over the dreadful "Something Borrowed," though it doesn't have anything terribly new to say. show more

    This buoyant, multigenerational comedy that takes its title from the African American wedding ritual has other distinctions as well. It's relatively raunch-free, it has a sparkling cast that reunites "Waiting to Exhale" stars Angela Bassett and Loretta Devine as combative matriarchs, and it likes its characters well enough to forgive them their faults. show more

    I loved this movie! It was not only a testament of love, ************* the truths in marriage. Sometimes people won’t get along with the bride/grooms family but they can come to a common ground that everyone will be respected. I watched it twice in the theatres and I rented it from Blockbuster because I’m so in love with it. Thankfully, I didn’t have to pay for it because I have the special Blockbuster promotion with DISH Network that allows me to use their service for three months without paying for it. Thank goodness that I have an employee account at DISH Network because I’m always finding out about special promotions and people can find out more information here http://bi
