Touching and funny story of the many perfect ways that love can be expressed. --Sarasota Film Festival

Instead of preaching about marriage equality, The Perfect Wedding simply shows life in futuristic world where it s taken for granted. And that world looks pretty good. --Herald-Tribune Heartwarming... illustrating a fresh take on a modern family. --This Week in Sarasota

The Perfect Wedding is the most perfect romantic charmer I've seen in a long time. Kudos to the writers for giving us a story with some depth and respect for the human condition, which as we know, is far from 'perfect.' I disagree with reviewers who claim the movie is "light" "fluffy." Though the writers and director handle the heavy stuff with a light touch, there is nothing fluffy about substance abuse recovery or Alzheimer disease. Paul, the recovering alcoholic and serial relationship killer, struggles. His sister struggles with being honest with her mother regarding HER wishes for her upcoming wedding plans. Their parents struggle with a debilitating disease...YET in the midst of all this struggling, they find and discover a deep and abiding love and respect for one another. One of the most romantic and honest declarations of love I've seen on film is in this little indie. Eric Aragon (Paul) delivers a solid performance, and doesn't disappoint in this touching and high moment in the film. What a sweet picture. And the ending provides a wonderful poetic irony that even this hardcore cynic had to give a shout-out. The editing is excellent, the cinematography beautiful (love Sarasota, Florida--been there and love it in this movie). On a political note, that this film was shot in Florida (anti-gay marriage; anti-mixed adoption), may be a political statement. Not sure if that's what the writers and director intended, but I thought I'd point that out. The the lead characters are adopted across ethnic, racial lines. In addition, a gay marriage takes place there (presumably--at least in the movie). Rent it, enjoy it and tell your friends.

This is a very sweet and endearing movie. It's light drama more than comedy. Don't expect a fast action packed movie here. This is set at a nice leisurely pace, telling a warm story about a loving family. I loved each character! Definitely worth watching again!

I loved it. I may be a romantic and this film is a pure romantic comedy. But what is truly great is that it also covers a real family who has its real issues of alcoholism, alzheimer's disease and marriage gay and straight all coming to a head at christmas which they face together. If you want a warm, fun, not too serious, and romantic movie with a great cast to make u laugh, then this is the movie. Enjoy!

This is a slight, charming, well-acted and perhaps too short (it could have benefited from a bit more plot and character development) romance about what we do and what we sacrifice in the name of love to parents, to children, to ex-lovers, and to potential lovers. It is also the story of Paul (not Roy) and how his journey to sobriety and maturity has an impact on those who love him and those whom he loves. Very enjoyable, even if not deep.I mean, how many coming out, AIDS related films do we really need?

This was...not great. Not dreadful, but not great, either.

I (obviously) ignored the several rather strongly-worded negative reviews because it seemed like a lot of people like this one, but maybe I should have paid attention. I'm not sure whether to blame the acting or the writing. Much of the movie came off as stilted and fake, and my first thought was that the actors didn't have the chops to pull the story off...but the longer I watched, the more I started to wonder whether at least part of the problem was that the writer(s) aren't good at natural dialogue, and the actors themselves just didn't have good enough material to work with. Regardless, though, there was an ever-present sense of "real people don't sound like that when they talk to each other."

It's too bad; some of the more minor characters weren't badly done at all. I liked the parents, for instance. But the main lead - Eric Aragon, who plays Paul - kind of stunk.

It wasn't just stilted dialogue, either; the plot had some pretty big problems...the biggest probably being the fact that Paul and Gavin met and fell in love in a matter of hours. Can that sort of thing happen in real life? Sure, I suppose. (Or, at least infatuation can come on that suddenly.) But for a movie to be successful, it needs to not only tell a story, but sell it. We viewers need to buy into it, and I'm afraid that I simply wasn't invested in the relationship working out.

(spoilers ahead)

There were other things off, too. Paul goes into a big confession about how he's an alcoholic, and how he was all screwed up from being adopted, and none of that rang true at all. Or, rather, I've known people who overshare, but I certainly don't go all moony-eyed over them when they do.

Amusing story with a certain appeal. The actors are a very capable bunch. The story has an appeal to gay and non gay viewing audience members. The late Mr. Reborn was a very good, believable character actor.

One of the best movies from any genre that I have seen in a long time! No gratuitous sex scenes with mindless characters,instead a wonderfully nuanced,beautifully acted( down to the minor characters as well) film.It has the rare charm and heart that make me want to watch again and again( there are only a handful of books and films that I ever say this about). Thank you for this film!
