What's the film about?

Long divorced couple Don and Ellie Griffin are forced to play the happy couple for the sake of their adopted son's wedding after his ultra conservative biological mother unexpectedly decides to attend.

With all of the wedding guests looking on, the pair are forced to confront their past, present and future - and hopefully avoid killing each other in the process.

Who's in it? Amanda Seyfried, Robert De Niro, Katherine Heigl, Diane Keaton, Ben Barnes, Susan Sarandon, Topher Grace and Robin Williams



Handbag hearts:

It's so fun to see such legendary actors and actresses running around being all sorts of naughty in this flick.

Robert De Niro is always up for some fun and you can feel it when you see him romping around with Diana Keaton and Susan Sarandon.

The strength of this film is that it knows it's silly and if you're happy to go along for the ride then you'll love it.

Robin Williams is such a fun treat to watch as the cheeky priest and we think our love for him is why he stole the show.

Complaints:

As always these films are pretty predictable so don't complain when you're able to guess the ending after 10 minutes.

But there are a few surprises that will keep things fun for you.

Standout Moment: When a shocking load of revelations are made which leads to quite a few punches being thrown about.

Verdict: A watchable wedding rom-com that won't compete with its successful predecessors. 3 stars

P.S. We freaking love Robin Williams. Can he be in more films please?

The Big Wedding will be in UK cinemas from 29 May 2013.
