The Perfect Wedding (2012)
It’s a gay themed, pleasant, afternoon bromance comedy of little white lies and egos. I liked it. Some have ridiculed it as a Doris Day/Rock Hudson clone that’s out of touch. I disagree. Besides, Doris was (is) a fabulously popular and wealthy star so she must have known something the rest of you still don’t.
OK, it’s formulaic. I give you that. The screenplay drags in a few spots. Some of the dialog is preachy. But it’s far superior to anything guys like Judd Apatow is putting out these days. (Think “Bridesmaids.”) And these producers don’t have the budget many of today’s most successful filmmakers spend on catering.
Nothing wrong here at all if you don’t some expecting Frank Capra. I wish people could stop being so critical of indie gay themed movies. It’s a bit of a miracle they get made at all.
