    Set against South Africa’s breathtaking landscapes, WHITE WEDDING is a high-spirited modern day road comedy about love, commitment, intimacy, friendship, and the unbelievable obstacles that can get in the way of a fairy-tale ending. Ayanda (Zandie Msutwana) is just days away from her lifelong dream of a modern ‘white wedding,’ complete with a dazzling dress, dozens of bridesmaids, a flamboyant wedding planner and large reception at a fancy hotel. The only problem is that her husband-to-be, the sweet, committed Elvis (Kenneth Nkosi), is 1,000 miles away with his childhood friend and best-man Tumi (Rapulana Seiphemo). What should be a simple, straightforward journey gets seriously derailed, forcing Elvis, Tumi and Rose (Jodie Whittaker), a footloose English doctor they meet along the way to tackle directional mishaps, car accidents, a tag-along goat, and a potentially dangerous encounter with a bar full of redneck Afrikaners seemingly stuck in the era of Apartheid. Ultimately charmed by Elvis’ infectious spirit, everyone surrounding him becomes determined to get him to his destination. Meanwhile, poor Ayanda is watching her dream unravel as she wrestles with problems of her own -- from questioning whether there’s any truth to Elvis’ preposterous excuses of why he might not get to the church on time, being caught between European and African traditions as her mother (Sylvia Mngxekeza) has a very different idea about how the wedding should be orchestrated, and dealing with the unexpected arrival of Tony (Mbulelo Grootboom), a slick old boyfriend with a questionable agenda. WHITE WEDDING subtly interweaves South Africa’s history as bride, groom, friends and lovers are forced to look at the meaning of marriage, fidelity, honesty and the two sides to every story.

    I really enjoyed White Wedding, from the chemistry of the actors to the creative direction that Jann Turner took with the film. This movie was VERY appealing to the eye. Most of the time when you think about Africa, you think about deserts, wild animals, and safaris. White Wedding shows in spectacular grandeur the enchanting terrain of South Africa - the lush green grass and trees, high class resorts, and beautiful hills and mountain tops. The fact that this movie is a road trip movie shows off the scenery even more, with the pair traveling everywhere from Johannesburg to Cape Town.

    Although it is a storyline that has been seen before, executive producer Ken Follett helped put together a highly original cast and the chemistry of the actors creates a new and exciting environment, that blends well with the chaos that ensues. I personally picked up 2 copies, one for myself and one for my girlfriend. *HINT HINT* Guys it would be a great Valentine's Day gift! I loved it and give it 5 stars.

    First thing first, I must offer South Africa's "White Wedding" a little bit of tough love. A road comedy about the potential pratfalls and pitfalls on a cross country journey toward impending nuptials, "White Wedding" has had the unfortunate honor of being compared to "The Hangover" by a couple of critics. Furthermore, these proclamations loom large on the DVD packaging. Why is being compared to one of the biggest comedies in recent history bad? A great question. Anyone bamboozled into expecting the raucous humor of "The Hangover" will undoubtedly be confounded. Don't get me wrong, "White Wedding" certainly has its gentle comedic charms but "The Hangover" quip will certainly set up expectations in the viewer that the film will never be able to fulfill.

    That said, "White Wedding" is more likely to appeal to fans of the romantic comedy genre. It tells the story of a groom making his way across South Africa for his wedding party in Cape Town. Accompanying him on the journey are his misogynistic best friend and an English woman they encounter in their travels. The bride, meanwhile, is dealing with drama of her own--her mother's expectations for the big day differ from her vision and a successful ex has reentered the picture. Needless to say, the road trip aspect of "White Wedding" hits plenty of obstacles which leaves both the ceremony and the bride's feelings in jeopardy. While the actors are appealing, however, we never do see the bride and groom as a real couple (they speak perfunctorily during several phone conversations)--so the romantic stakes may be a bit compromised. While I liked them, the film never really convinced me that it was their destiny to be together.

    That leaves the comedy.

    I must say, I didn't have the highest expectations for this movie, because I've never been a fan of foreign films-- as most of us are accustomed to the high-budget monster movies from Hollywood, foreign films often seem mundane and slow-moving, which is a direction this movie could have gone in. However, this one pleasantly surprised me.

    White Wedding is a lighthearted, adventurous romantic comedy that will entertain its audience the whole time thanks to its ridiculous twists and turns, and a young couple in love that will keep you rooting for them until the very end.

    While the plot mainly follows a humorous roadtrip story of man-racing-to-get-to-wedding-on-time, the film touches on some social issues too, all the while providing a captivating backdrop of the beautiful landscapes of South Africa- something you don't get to see in the typical Hollywood movie.

    White Wedding also boasts a strong cast of relatively fresh faces; but don't let that fool you, their performances will draw you in with every scene. The cast is dynamic and memorable, and the characters complement each other nicely. If you like romantic comedies with farcical mishaps and lovable characters and are looking for one with some more cultural substance, you'll find this movie delightfully entertaining. I definitely give this movie 5 stars.

    It's different & enjoyable! The storyline is good, a lot of comedic scenes in the movie, nice music, good acting & INCREDIBLE Scenery of South Africa! I've watched it 3 times in the last year & it's still fresh & entertaining! If you want something that is different (not run of the mill) ... this might be what your looking for! Its a happy, funny, feel-good movie about one man's adventure to get to the alter - that's both entertaining & lighthearted.

    I enjoyed it. The plot moved forward adequately, but it needed a little kick in the writing to hold my interest.

    White wedding seems to be, on the surface, a comedy about a wedding in contemporary South Africa, but it touches on quite a few important issues. It's a little slow in injecting more serious matters--leftover apartheid characteristics in today's SA, human integrity, the age-old clash between traditional and modern ways, the importance of friendship--because at heart the movie is a comedy. To me what prevents it being a 4 or 5-star movie is a certain looseness of plot, and the unnecessary time it takes for the movie to settle down. That being said, if you don't mind dealing with a mix of English and sub-titles, the movie is reasonably entertaining.
