Long Story Short:
Alejandro (Ben Barnes) and Missy (Amanda Seyfried) are getting married, and things couldn’t be more perfect. But his birth mother, a strict Catholic from Columbia, is attending the wedding, so Alejandro begs his parents, who are divorced for ten years, to play a happy couple couple since it the biggest sin to get divorced. But where does that leave his stepmother Bebe (Susan Sarandon)? But that’s not the only issue: as the wedding is getting closer somehow everyone seems to have the urge to reveal someone else’s secret.
First of all I am glad they made a R rated movie because I am getting tired of all these comedies that have to hold back in cursing or sexuality because they try to make more money by making a PG movie. There are a lot of brilliant actors in this movie and no one is trying to outplay each other, they work together, and work together well. Most of the jokes are on point and even Katherine Heigl has a few funny moments, which is good for her. After all, her performances have been a little stiff and dry ever since 27 dresses. However, the whole storyline of the movie is silly. Why would someone care how their birth mother feel about their adoptive parents being divorced? I mean obviously something in her life went wrong, too, for having to give up a baby, right? So who is she to judge? And why would you put your stepmother through all this after she raised you for ten years? But with that said, I still think it is a fun and refreshing movie that goes by fast.
