Product Description

Steve Thompson, a lovable anti-hero, is the youngest son in the gloriously flawed Thompson family. In a bid to save himself from financial ruin, Steve does the unthinkable and agrees to marry Ana, a Russian woman seeking residency in exchange for a huge sum of cash. Behind closed doors the deal is done, a secret wedding is arranged & in no time life will be back to normal, or so Steve thinks... Until a nosy family friend gets wind of the wedding plans and before sundown the whole Thompson family is gripped by wedding fever. Although Steve's family could use some constructive therapy for their own relationships, they rally together to support Steve in preparation for the world's most farcical wedding. What was once a private registry affair is now a fully-fledged spectacle as Steve's lie takes on a life of it's own, and he is more and more consumed by the fear that he has ruined his chance to be with his true love, Jacqui, forever.

9 STARS OF 10 One from the heart- with plenty of laughs. 2 August 2010- by Tristan Housden Australia See all my reviews I saw The Wedding Party last Saturday night and wasn't sure what to expect. By the end, I felt I'd finally seen an accomplished and very funny Australian sex comedy with one of the best casts I'd seen in years. The central wedding plot involving Josh Lawson and Isabel Lucas is fun, but the real meat and potatoes is the fascinating and funny grid of family relationships that develop within the plot. It's here that we get some great performances, some genuine comic moments and some real insight into the under the sheets psyche of middle Australia, who by the way, are going to love this film. Adam Zwar and Nadine Garner are hilarious as they try to come to terms with her vulvadinia condition -dysfunctional vaginal muscles. Zwar's ruffled, slightly puzzled, slightly petrified everyman is one of the film's gleaming highlights. Nadine too, is funny and complex as she nearly sabotages her own relationship due to her fears of childlessness. On the other hand, a complex and intriguing plot involves Garner and Lawson's older brother, Colin, played by the wonderful and under-rated Geoff Paine. His story is one of deception and unfulfilled desire, and without giving away too much of a highly unique subplot, he is driven away from his wife (the wonderful Essie Davis) by his peculiar sexual needs and is gradually drawn into Melbourne's salacious subculture. Oddly, this, the most dramatic subplot in the film, also creates two of its biggest laughs. The film is, in many respects a comedy, but the performances reek of truthfulness in a way that many of these actors are rarely allowed to exhibit - especially in their sanitized turns in Australian TV dramas. In this film, they clearly enjoy the unabashed honesty afforded to them by first time director Amanda Jane. In the midst of this huge, impressive cast, Josh Lawson and Isabel Lucas are truly charismatic and funny - an oddball combination that works charmingly due to Isabel's turn as a Russian bride, failing to fully understand Josh's Woody Allen-esquire nervous humor. If all that wasn't enough, Steve Bisley as the head of the family steals the show with his hilariously arrogant posturing. Kestie Morassi may have found her perfect role also as Steve's (Lawson's) true love, Jacqui. She builds a very close bond with the audience as we ride her confusion and angst, waiting for the hyperactive Steve to sort out his shambolic life. It's a unique film. The audience I saw it with, a packed house at Greater Union in Melbourne, were in hysterics one moment, deeply touched the next but it's style is so oddball it takes 10 minutes to orient yourself in the film's universe. Once you are there though, you'll realize you're hearing a terrific new voice in Australian cinema. --Imdb reviewer

I kept thinking it might get better but it was bad from the start so I did not finish watching it.

I was just in the mood for a romantic comedy.

First minute should be rated x. Very graphic sex scenes. So glad my girls weren't watching it with me. It was not rated so I figured it was like a hallmark movie. NOT! Turned it off promptly.

This movie is a real "sleeper" - and I mean that in the sense that not too many people seem to know about it, not that it is a movie that will put you to sleep.
I rented it, not expecting too much, but was delightfully surprised. It is well-written, with solid and believable dialogue. All of the characters are absolutely lovable, which is unusual in a film. You just feel for everyone and all of the things they are going through. And everyone's acting is first-rate. No real screw-ups in that department.
The only downside is that it takes a bit of work during the beginning of the movie to figure out who everyone is, how they are related, and how their lives intersect. However, once you've gotten that figured out, the rest of the movie is just really enjoyable and engaging.
Hats off to everyone who was involved in it. Definitely worth a look!

You do not want to watch this movie seriously unless your into porn...I started to watch this movie because I thought it was rated G or PG at the worse. The first minute of this movie is a complete turn off. A complete turn off. It should be considered pornography. I am disgusted!!!!! Please don't have your children around and really don't have yourself around!

It is a three star, but a lot of people have been unduly harsh regarding this charming comedy. Marrying for visa reasons has been the subject of quite a few cute films. This one includes the family in a good way. Not nearly as unrealistic as some others I've seen. Fine for a rainy afternoon.

I turned it off after 1 minute because I was so revolted. Please don't watch if you have any sense of decensy.

I did not even get past the first 2 minutes. This movie is not rated and should be at least rated R. Very immoral which was so disappointing because I really wanted to watch a nice movie!

I'm a sucker for wedding films even as cheezy as they can be, but this one was different. There was some raw, honesty and interesting plot twists. Would certainly recommend.
