BETSY'S WEDDING is a funny, feel-good movie about a wonderfully eccentric family and their hilarious trials and tribulations - it's about everything but their daughter's wedding! Anything can and does happen when the free-spirited bride-to-be casually announces her engagement, setting off a series of crazy events, including accidental meetings with the mafia, oddball romances and riotous schemes!

4.0 out of 5 stars Light hearted and funny! November 24, 2004
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Alan Alda, Ally Sheedy, Molly Ringwold, Joe Pesci and the late Madeline Kahn star in this funny wedding movie. Everyone knows Alda as a funny man who has been turning in some more serious performances latley but who knew Joe Pesci could be funny? Naturally, there is trouble over putting Eddie Hopper's (Alda) daughter's (Ringwold) wedding together.

Hopper's family is comfortable but not rich but the other family is rolling in dough and wants to take over the wedding. Oscar Henner (Pesci) is in construction but has ties to organized crime. Oscar is having an affair with his secretary but his wife (Catherine O'Hara) knows all about it. Hopper's other daughter (Sheedy) falls for the nephew (Anthony LaPaglia as Stevie Dee) of Oscar's not so honest associate (Burt Young). She's a cop and he's connected to the mob. Eddie borrows money from Oscar to pay for the wedding but Oscar charges him interest. Oscar involves Eddie in a deal with his associate but to get out of the deal might get him killed. Oscar offers to find a tent for the wedding but cuts a deal with someone and gets the wrong kind of tent. By the way, Oscar rents an apartment to the newlyweds in one of his tenament slum buildings!

The wedding turns out to be a disaster of course. The tent leaks and then a hole is opened in the roof of the tent and the rain pours in. The food gets ruined and Eddie has to send out for pizza and everyone has to take their shoes off because the tent gets flooded.

By the way, look for Samuel Jackson (unknown then) in a very small bit part in the taxi depot scene.

It's lots of fun. No nudity, sex, violence. There is some foul language. I suggest a viewing of of at least 13.

5.0 out of 5 stars UNDERRATED COMEDY June 4, 2006
By Spider
Format:DVD
Loved it, and have for a long time. For some reason most people either haven't watched it, or didn't get it. Obviously from the reviews here you can see I am not alone in my rating. Joe Pesci is HILARIOUS, and the movie is filled with other great characters and funny moments. Just keeps you interested with witty dialogue and universal life experiences. Like 29TH STREET this is another underrated movie, which should after watching it cacth your attention if you like romantic comedies, like WHEN HARRY MET SALLY etc. Enjoy...

5.0 out of 5 stars What a find! March 11, 2005
Format:VHS Tape
I did not expect much from this movie, perhaps because I had just finished watching 20 Dates, one of the worst movies I have ever seen. Betsy's Wedding was a delight, very sweet, and incredibly funny. I have seen movies about wedding disasters before, but this one had me laughing until it hurt. Alan Alda and Madeline Kahn were outstanding as Betsy's parents.

I HAVE ATLEAST, FOUR COPIES OF THIS FILM, I'M NOT EVER GOING TOO BE WITHOUT "BETSY'S WEDDING "

Format:DVD
Betsy's Wedding (1990) is a family-entertainment movie, that
comes close to a TV-style picture, from suger-coating each and
every scene, from start to finish, a bit much, over 90 minutes or
more. This is picture to see, mainly for completists in the genre
of mob pictures who particularly enjoy comedy combined in it,
seeing that Joe Pesci reaches deep inside himself to deliver a
credible, no-nonsense character. also known as the straight-man,
juxtaposed with Alan Alda, who plays the more comedic, mature,
responsible, dreamer and friendly kind of guy, incredibly. For
those who pull a blank seeing Anthony LaPaglia, yes, the actor
is the brother of Jonathan LaPaglia who delivered a wonderful
performance in "UNDER HELLGATE BRIDGE " some years ago.

The strong points of this picture, is the romantic comedy aspect,
as its lays out what parents and youths have to deal with, when
different cultures combine in a marriage, involving in the
process, economic, and class differences, as well. A nice,
wholesome film, most would suggest. For fans of Joe Pesci, just
seeing the actor being a straight, no-nonsense dude is worth the
price of admission, as compared to other works that are slapstick
style, of course.

4.0 out of 5 stars Underrated Comedy about Family and Being Married. February 15, 2002

When a family man (Alan Alda-Also the Film`s Director) tries to make the best situation of his daughter (Molly Ringwald) wedding, because he trying to created a old fashioned expensive wedding, but he`s needs the money, he needs but he caught between his complicated family and his gangster friends.
Directed by Alan Alda made a often uproarious comedy. This film has a great supporting Cast including:Madeline Kahn, Oscar-Winner:Joe Pesci, Ally Sheedy, Burt Young, Joey Bishop, Catherine O`Hara and Anthony La Paglia, this is a light-hearted film. Grade:B+.

5.0 out of 5 stars Such a Fun Movie June 8, 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I adore this movie! Such a fun love story!! Quirky Molly Ringwald is getting married. To only be followed by silliness with the family. One of my all time favorites.

5.0 out of 5 stars Betsy's Wedding July 17, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've watched this movie every time it appears on TV, so I decided I should just buy it. It's got some very funny scenes. I especially enjoyed Anthony LaPaglia in his role as a "shady" character who is in love with Alan Alda's daughter. A definite departure from his role in "Without a Trace." Nice way to spend a couple of hours.
