Sometimes you need more than love...By Slidingonthewalls (21 reviews) from Southampton , 24 Feb 2009
[Highly rated reviewer]I watched this film and thought it came across as a bit cliche'd, self important and patronising. The company I was with however, enjoyed it.
I could say that it's the kind of film that people who don't watch many films would like, but then that sentance would come across as cliche'd, self important and patronising.
It deals with some good issues - that love is all you need, but then sometimes love is not enough - and has some credible acting, mainly by 'Rachel', 'Kim' and their father - but the story was nothing new really, and there were some pretty amateurish edits, sound and camera work which in my opinion, didn't add the quirky, raw edge they were probably intended for. The pseudo-bohemian wedding scene tended to linger like a hungover morning fart and spiralled into a self-important pat on the back for the director/costume department.
One thing this movie did show me was the human embodiment of an Ipod, and he was wearing pink sunglasses.

dull as ditchwaterBy floydbaggins (38 reviews) from Aberystwyth , 12 Jul 2011It looks like it would have been a fun wedding to be attending as a friend or relative and you actually knew anyone...but watching it on dvd was honestly quite dull as ditchwater.
OKish DramaBy GaryI (785 reviews) from March, Cambs , 24 Jun 2011This is one of those docu style dramas in this case basically about a dysfunctional family on the eve of a family wedding and surrounding at the centre the recovering junkie, Kim whose sister Rachel is getting hitched.
Its all very well acted but its more like a good BBC2 drama than a movie so be wary if you expect a standard narrative driven film.
It's interesting and different but occasionally hard work.
Don't watch it save yourself!By a customer , 02 May 2011Terrible, terrible, terrible. One of the few films that I have turned off half way through due to a mixture of both boredom and irritation.
Shockingly bad!By a customer , 23 Apr 2011No real storyline. You don't get to know the characters so you couldn't give two hoots about any of them. I managed to watch 40 minutes before switching off!!
Not worth itBy a customer , 22 Apr 2011This was really not an impressive film. The storyline was really slow and uninteresting. Would not watch it again and thought watching it was a waste of time.
