Sabrina Watson (Paula Patton) is a successful corporate lawyer who comes from an old-money family. When she meets Jason Taylor (Laz Alonso), she thinks she's found Mr. Right and eagerly accepts the Wall Street worker's marriage proposal after a whirlwind courtship. However, when Sabrina's aristocratic parents (Angela Bassett, Brian Stokes Mitchell) meet Jason's postal-worker mother (Loretta Devine) at their estate on Martha's Vineyard, the class division seems very wide indeed.

  • 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

  • A wedding comedy that grows increasingly unfunny with each passing minute. show more

  • Director Salim Akil deserves credit for keeping the film from falling apart completely. He sets a the brisk pace, and uses the picturesque oceanside setting to give the movie an inviting gloss even as the overstuffed narrative threatens to push viewers away. 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
